MAWTT - Christmas Crackers (Humorous Cards)


hope you are all well this Thursday morning...  it's time for a new challenge over at

and this week our lovely Judith has chosen the wonderful theme of...

'Christmas Crackers (humorous cards)'

So we want to see some Christmas Cards that will make us Laugh Rolling on the floor laughing....I think everyone gets a little very stressed in the run up to Christmas so this challenge will be the perfect antidote.... closing date is 8pm on 19th December 2012.

I have used my favourite Bugaboo character Stella - Stella Christmas - Psycho - she never fails to make me smile... and hope you can imagine her singing this 'not so traditional' version of Deck the Halls in a very droll deep voice... that is how I imagine her!! she reminds me of Lily Savage! LOL 

The Sentiment 'Tis the Season for Psycho Shoppers' comes with the Stamp and it gave me the idea to add to the lyrics... hope you like it... I do all my Christmas shopping online now but can still remember some very hellish Christmas Shops from pre-internet days.... Confused smile fights over who is next in the queue... boy they could get very nasty!!! the pickpockets... ooh I could go on ... Bah Humbug! but don't want to be a Scrooge!!! LOL

I coloured Stella with Promarkers and the paper that creates the border was a freebie with magazine...

We are sponsored this week by the fabulous Sir Stampalot

and just look at the fab prize they have given for this week's winner!! some gorgeous goodies... I wish I could enter!! 

Don't forget to pop on over to our main blog MAWTT for more details of the Challenge and to see the rest of the Teams fab and funny cards!!! go on.... it will only take 5 minutes and you know you need cheering up!!! 

Now I think my card will qualify for the Oldie but a Goodie Challenge because I won this image over a year ago in a CSAYL Challenge!! but didn't have time to use it last Christmas... so I was really glad when Judith chose this week's theme... I thought YES !! I can finally use Stella... also think the paper is from last year too!! LOL... and I'm using one of OBAG's sponsors Bugaboo! 

I would like to enter the following Challenges:
Creative Craft Challenges2 - 'Humorous' ends 17th December 2012
Oldie but a Goodie - 'Use a Sponsor's Image' ends 7th January 2013

I got so caught up in Crafting that I nearly forgot to schedule this post for morning!! I've just done all my Stickling tonight... so it can dry overnight... Winking smile gonna read my book now... 
Hope you are all looking forward to Weekend! Can't wait for Strictly... all the dancers are SO good this year.... keep changing my mind about who should win... it's going to be a real nail-biting Semi Final!! 
Hope you have a good day!
Love and Hugs

Hi Sue, I love this also, nothing better than to have a chuckle or two.

I totally agree with your first commenter and I thought we were the only ones who don't do Christmas....don't need it but lovely food/booze is quite on the cards.

Judith said...

This Is just a fab Sue - a real laugh out loud! And I just love the way you've done the sentiment- I love it x - I hate the shopping here at Christmas - I did all my shopping in Florida- no crowds , hot weather, cheap as chips and everyone's nice - the shops and people here could learn a lot! - as for food I shop on Christmas Eve at M&S - done it for years and it works a treat -after all it's only 2 days - then we can go food shopping allover again lol. I have no idea what people pile up in their trolleys - how do they eat it all and why would you want to - I think the worlds gone mad! - ok moan over ha ha - you've got the right idea - it's the simple things like strictly that keep the world going round - I'll be watching - see you there! Hugs Judith x :)

cotnob said...

Fab card Sue, I love Stella and your lyrics are perfect.
I'm with you, all of my shopping is done online with the exception of the food and that's all on order from Waitrose, I will be picking it up on Christmas Eve - they are really organised and even hand out chocolates!
Have a great weekend.

Pia S said...

Hihi - love your fun sentiment, Sue! A cool clean Christmas card! I'm always finished shopping Christmas gifts by October. And almost all my family members have birthdays from Decemeber to February, so I do away with those too while I'm at it! Saves a lot of frustration and time in December:) Online shopping is a nice option though.

Shannon White said...
