AI Challenge #68 Make Us Laugh

Most of the Art Impressions stamps that I own, are ones that will cause a chuckle.  One that has been sorely neglected is the Old Lady Maude and her morning coffee.  I just love the rollers in her wild hair, and her face that looks like a prune!  Her # is I-1238.  She looks like I feel on most mornings, and I would just adore a pair of those bunny slippers.  Come on, I see a smile!

My card is a white base with digital coffee paper.  I made a frame of red card and layered on a die cut from my new Spellbinders Floral Oval dies.  I did some sponging with Poppy Parade from SU!  Maude was stamped, colored with Copic markers, and cut out to be centered on the oval.  The sentiment is digital, which I think is a riot,  and has no designer attached to the file.

Hope you are having a fun Saturday night.  I tried a couple of new recipes I found on Pinterest this week.  Hubby was happy and his brother cleaned up the leftovers when he came to go fishing.  I have tried 4 recipes so far and they were all keepers.  On the pie, I cheated and used a refrigerated pie crust.  On the Parm, I used breast tenders instead of full boneless breasts so the time could stay at 30-35 minutes.

Corn, Tomato, and Cheddar pie
Chicken Parm Casserole
Grilled Cabbage
4 Ingredient Chicken 

I feel like I have been in such a cooking rut, and these make me feel that I can climb out of it. If you need a change, give them a peek.  Pinterest, where have you been all my life?

Mary Anne, she really makes me laugh. I have this image myself, but it's too long ago since I inked her up. Shame on me !
The sentiment is fab.
Enjoy your weekend.
