I'm not saying that you're old...

Good morning, at least we're enjoying some beautiful weather for this Bank Holiday weekend- even if the furthest we can go is in the garden! Another upside is  we won't be getting stuck in any traffic jams either :))
Our challenge at Sweet Stampin' this week has the theme of 'humour' so I took the opportunity to crack open my brand new set of Snarky Cats stamps (Tim Holtz). These stamps and sentiments really appeal to my (not very nice!) sense of humour  :D 
I had some previously made coloured backgrounds from a session playing with Distress Oxides and Brushos, so I fished them out and chose this yellow/orange one, added some stamping and stencilling and distressed the edges. The cat is coloured with copics and fussy cut, the sentiment stamped directly onto the background. I added faux stitching around the edges, twine and an ancient brad. This is for my brother, he's actually younger than me but who cares( his SOH is definitely more not- nice than mine!!!) 
We'd love to see your funny stuff this week, so please do hop over to Sweet Stampin', there's some great inspiration from my teamies and we could all do with something to make us laugh just now.
Thanks for visiting
Have a good day

Fabulous card Chris, gorgeous background and the sentiment is ace. Gorgeous day again, off out into the garden to read as soon as I have finished on the computer. We had a lovely socially distanced street party yesterday with everyone in their front gardens, really enjoyed it. Hope you have a good day and some warm weather.

What a stunning background and a really fun image and cracking sentiment (get it, if you have cream on the top of your milk and in the hot weather, they used to say the milk has cracked) I have semi-skimmed so don't get that anymore) There have been times when I wish we did not have a garden (especially with clay soil) but at these times it is great to have one. You and yours take care.

What a fantastic sediment, Chris! I believe I actually snorted! It's perfect for your new snarky cat, who looks perfect on your moody artsy background! I love that ancient brad, too! Take care and keep on keeping safe! Happy Mother's Day and thank you for sharing at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell
