I am glad I don't have any plans for traveling these days. The whole of northen Europe is kind of closed down. Well, all airline traffic is closed down. I think Iceland is doing a insuransescam. They went bankcrupt so now they set the whole ting on fire to clam the insurancemoney! Either that or they are getting back on England - showing England that even though they are small, you don't mess with Iceland *LOL* England has blamed Iceland for the financial crisis and do demad that Iceland pay England a HUGE amount of money that Iceland of course don't have. I think this is Icelands respons to this claim - yeah sure, you go claim us for money, then we will blow a vulcano on you! HA!
We have not seen anything of this ashes here yet, but there is a bad smell outside - it is not supposed to be dangerous so all is well then I think ;o)
Over to the card.
Not the highpoint of my cardmaking career this. But sometimes you just have to have fun, right? I just could not make this right, but I soo wanted to use this cool tiger. Look at his face - he don't have any good intentions in mind do he? *LOL*
I found him at one of those free vector image sites. It was a challenge to make him fit to the jigsawpuzzel from the MMSC#49 sketch. Does tigers and jigsawpuzzels have anything in common? If they do please tell me!
I had quite a bit of struggel with those puzzelpieces tried them in many different colors and patterns, but I ended up with these made of a paper that looks like leather - the closest I could get to the animal world. But they were so boring. So I had to find somehting to break the bordom there.
I tried with some metal charms - but the only ones I had that could have fit was to "pretty". So I tried with a mulberry rose, and I tried with a metal flower, and I tried with a metalflower with a mulberry rose. That was a very cool combination but it was soooo wrong for this card.
I ended up with these grungeboardelements that I embossed. The star I embossed in gold, and the arrow with distress embossing - probably vintage photo.
I went even more animal with this snakeskinpaper that I layed as a background.
This is not a happy card. It is not even a nice card and I sure hope that I will never experience the day that this card will be appropriate to give to someone. But I do know someone who will se the humor. It is really the inside of this card that showes it's purpose.
It is not good to see, but it says:
They're coming to take you away HAHA!
They're coming to take you away HEHE
To the funny farm
where life is beautiful all the time.
It's from a song called They're coming to take me away HAHA! By Dr. Demento's Delights
It says originally "They're coming to take me away, but I thought that I would for sure never send a card telling the world that I was going to the funny farm. So I had to change that. Sending off a card to someone else - well thats a different story isn't it *LOL* Kind of a nice warning to a good friend you know...
Hey, now you have gone so nuts that someone will come pick you up soon. Have a nice stay!
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I sure hope you a bit of fun while you were here!
