Humor Me Wednesday at catch the Bug

Hi, everyone!
We all know about holidays through the year such as Valentine's Day, Easter, July 4th and Christmas, but what about those oft-forgotten, completely crazy head-scratcher holidays that are rarely heard of, and often laughable?! Catch the Bug we will be highlighting some of the whacky holidays each week with some great projects and cards to depict them! We're calling it
Humor Me Wednesday!
We hope you will join us in the fun each week: take a peek at some of the different days by visiting the talented DT members for Bugaboo Stamps for some inspiration. Most holidays are just belly-busters, while others are just plain fun! :0) We are choosing holidays from each week for the Humor Me Wednesday creations, so we aren't all covering the same one. We're hoping this offers you that much more inspiration and fun! :0)

For my card today, I chose to use the July 7 holiday: Chocolate Day. Some other more humorous holidays this week are happening on July 10 is Teddy Bear Picnic Day; July 11 is Cheer Up the Lonely Day, and  , are you ready for this?! The entire week, July 7-13, is Nude Recreation Week! lol! (I really did try to come up with a card idea for that, but I fell short on ideas. lol! THAT would have been a really big HAHA for Wednesday!).

Today I used the Kitchen Ginger - Chocolate Chip  image from Bugaboo Stamps. I kept him clean and simple. I used some of my stashed-away DCWV papers. I have a TON of these. I think I don't pull them out much because they are a card stock, and layering them makes for quite a thick, heavy card........literally. Today, I made sure to cut each of my pieces to avoid layering them. I am much happier with it this way, and will try to remember to do this more in the future with these papers. :)
There is a lot of glitter on the papers, so I didn't do any additional Stickles or glaze this time (seems I'm on a roll with that glaze, lately! lol!). The sentiment is one that I altered from a coffee sentiment that I've seen on store plaques and wall art (usually it reads, "With enough coffee I can rule the world", or with enough "caffeine"....something along those lines).

You can pick up this great image for your project over at the Bugaboo Stamps Store; you can hop on over to Catch the Bug Blog to see more fun 
Humor Me Wednesday creations, as well as our other weekly goings-on. Please visit the other DT members blogs and leave them some love -  you will see some new faces over there, and we all love to know what you think of our efforts. :0)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

  1. There are some really silly and crazy holidays during the year. But i think celebrating chocolate is an important one I should definitely not over look. Darling card you made! I have that same sentiment over my kitchen sink but the word "coffee" is used instead of "chocolate"....but you probably already know that...haha

  2. Yeah for using the hoarded paper, I love the chips and they go so well with your adorable image! Thanks for playing with us over at Loves Rubberstamps!

  3. Such a lovely card and fab color combo. Thanks for joining us at LRS.

  4. Too cute, Cheryl ! I love that chocolate chip paper. Such an adorable image. :-D
