Lunchbox Punny Love {PP89}

Woohoo, it's Sunday! I love Sundays because I get to play with my gal pals at The Paper Players! Our friend Anne Marie has a challenge as big as the state of Texas for us this week:


Yes, you read that right..."Tickle your Funnybone!"  If you're a follower of my blog, you know that I don't do humorous cards very often...so this one was definitely a challenge for me.  I decided to go the "punny" route and make a set of "Lunchbox Love" cards to brighten my daughter's day at school:


Aren't they cute?!  I printed a sheet of images in MDS from the Under the Big Top set and colored each one with ink pads and blender pens to coordinate with the new Summer Smooches DSP which is available beginning today!  The coordinating sentiments are so "punny", I just know that they will come in handy when my daughter needs a school-day smile!  I thought you might want to see each one up close...

Isn't this muscle man the cutest?!  His Tempting Turquoise unitard just makes me giggle and that big 'stache makes him look a little bit like the guy from the Village People don't you think?  LOL!


Who can resist a Tangerine Tango lion?  Not me!  And finally...


The smarty pants of them all...isn't he too cool for school with his Converse sneakers?  You may have noticed the size is a little bit different...these are all 4 1/4" square...a nice size for a lunchbox note but a little more "canvas" to work with than bitty notecards.  I won't bore you with the details...supply list is below.  Be sure to check out the inspiration from my fabulous teammates:

Ok, putting aside my fear of clowns to have a laugh at the comment about his Converse sneakers. Too funny! This is one fun bunch of cards! I've always thought that strong man looked like the guy from the Village People, too...or Freddie Mercury. Ha! Great minds think alike, I suppose. So cheerful and fun, I'm sure your daughter will love getting these sweet sentiments to brighten her day. I know they made me smile! Hope you enjoyed your weekend! Hugs! :)

What a brilliant idea to create little lunch time notes! These will totally bring a smile to her face. Isn't MDS the BEST when you may not have a certain stamp set that you want to use?! I am so loving the bright fresh colours that you used and can not wait to crack open my new DSP. Thanks for bring a smile to my face.

These are so cute, Nance. I have to keep in mind that I am capable of printing images I like off of MDS. Duh!!!
I'm sure your daughter loved them.
