This is No Joke!

Hi friends! Once again, I'm playing in the Moxie Fab World challenge. This time it's the Card Play Challenge. Cath asked us to create a paper project inspired by playing cards! I thought I'd throw my hat in the ring! (Pun intended!!) You have until October 3 to enter!! Why not give it a try!?!

I have not yet won one of these challenges yet, but I'm going to keep trying. I admit, I've felt some disappointment, but I have to keep things in perspective. I'm doing this for fun. Besides, I've seen my card-making skills improve since entering these a few months ago. Even though I haven't yet won a Moxie Fab World challenge, I've still gotten something out of it. I've made friends, learned new techniques and made better cards.

Here is my entry for the current challenge:


Paper: Stampin' Up! Cosmo Cricket
Ink: Stampin' Up! Memento
Embellishments: Felt, metal beads

I thought I'd take the Joker angle on this one. Cath wants us to be creative and think outside the box.  So far, nobody has used a Joker in their creation.

I created the jester hat from felt and used glue dots to adhere metal beads on the tips. I stamped the hearts and sentiment, which I have had in my stash forever!! I'm glad I found a good use for it! Hope you enjoy it!

Can I have this one (or you can make a second one) to give to my hubby? Even after 14 years when he repeats a line from the news it still cracks me up. The verse is just perfect.
