A Little Bit of Humour for the CCC!

Hello Everyone, I hope you are all having a lovely Easter Weekend and that the weather is good.
A bit watery here through the sunshine but really cold.

Thank you all for such lovely comments on my knittng projects, you are all very kind and I appreciate your kind words. I'm hoping to have my first piece of Fair Isle finished over the weekend, it's a Kindle cover pattern which I picked up whilst in Shetland last year, it's going well and I'm pleased with it.

However, it's time for our two weekly CCC shares and this time it's our lovely Mrs. A who has chosen the theme and it's to be humorous, so without further ado here is what I've come up with;
I just love this Hobby Art image, I think the sheep's facial expression says it all. I've given him a tartan coat with some buttons and used various other stamps from CB, Cardio to create the scene. MB colours and DI, The sentiment and fairy lights are also from the Hobby art stamp set, finished off with loads of sparkle.
Here is another Hobby Art image, Round Robin and he is coloured with Promarkers and SN pens, I've given him a wee had and put lots of Star Dust on it. then cut him out and put him on a background coloured with Creative Expressions Cosmic Shimmer  Christmas set of paints. CB little  mistletoe stamp along the bottom  and some faux stitching, sentiment is from the same stamp set, drops of Just Pearls to look like it's snowing.

Just for a change....it's another Hobby Art stamp, as with the Robin this one is more cute than humorous, but I love the image as it has a snowman and penguins and the snowman is juggling with them so that's a bit of humour. Derwent Ink Intense Pencils for colouring with Faber Castell Pastel pencils to add a bit of shading around the image. Loads of sparkle . I've then used Imagination Crafts stencil to make the background , the sentiment comes from the stamp stencil and that's all coloured with CE Colour Cloud. A purple bow and some gems.

Super challenge Valery, thank you so much , I hope these will do.

Right off the schedule this post for tomorrow when the challenge goes live,pleased visit the other ladies in the team to see what they create.

If you celebrated Easter, I wish you a very Happy one, and if  not well have a Happy day anyway, and don't overdose on Chocolate. Take care and see you all soon,

Just fabulous. I love how you've put a coat on the sheep, you'd think he'd be happier to be warner! The snowman juggling the penguins is just adorable too. Cara x

My you have a trio of funny cards! You've really added to your stash with each of these. Love that fat little robin, and of course the juggling snowie is fun & adorable, but that Tartan Sheep takes the cake! He has to be my fav, and I love his expression & his knit cap. Sometimes I feel much the same. Too clever Miss K, you did a fab job on the challenge! TFS & Happy Easter.

Hi Kate
Chuckling at your sheep. He has the look of being told he's going to the abattoir lol! Your chubby robin and your favourite snowman are fab and fun too.
Mr D certainly celebrates the chocolate part of Easter, if not the religious side lol!

These are all so fun and very cute indeed!

Mrs A picked a great theme, but I have not yet been down into the craft room...sigh...
I can not seem to get my routines back. We are under a main floor reno so my house has all the main floor furniture scattered through the other two floors. It is such a mess. Luckily I made a dozen cards at a paper craft store crop before we started the reno's. That is what I have been featuring on my blog!

Back to your cards. I like each and every one but I think the first is my fave cuz it made me laugh out loud!!!

Jennifer Johnston said...

Fabulous cards Kate, love them all but if I had to choose a favourite, I just love that cute little robin lol! plus I love the cow in his tartan coat and I agree, the look on his face is just fabulous. Hope you had a lovely Easter. Looking forward to seeing your knitted Kindle cover.
Hugs Jennifer xx.
