Funny Anniversary

hi everyone! Here we are at hump day again. I hope your week is going well. Let me tell you a little background about my card today. I belong to several rubberstamping groups and on one of them I run the RAK request list. As I'm sure most of you know a RAK stands for Random Act of Kindness and in the rubberstamping world a RAK is usually a handmade card you send someone. Every onth I will ask people to send me names of people they want to put on the RAK list - people they may know who are celebrating a birthday or anniversary or someone who may be in need of a little cheery mail.

Last month when I sent out the requests for June one lady told me that her anniversary is June 20th and that her husband had recently asked for a divorce and so she knew that she was going to be sad on her anniversary. She wanted people to send her funny cards to help cheer her up. So, here is the card I made for her


(click to enlarge)

I used the Coffee Chat girl from Squigglefly and colored her with Copic markers. The words were printed out at the same time. The sketch is from Card Patterns challenge.

I know you want to know what the inside says and I'll tell you, but since it's only one word I didn't bother to photograph it. It says simply "divorced". LOL! Now I apologize to any men reading this - I don't mean to bash. It's simply made to make her laugh and I hope it makes you laugh too!

Speaking of anniversaries, I told you earlier that Monday marked my two year blog-aversary and I've finally got a picture of the prize I'm giving away for it!



Here's what I'm giving away:

A package of 12 At You Spica pens
3 packages of the stick on cat eyes I love to use - one in blue, one in yellow, and one in green
A package of assorted fimo buttons made by Jane Beljo
A package of brass charms by Making Memories
A Studio G clear stamp set
A Tags So Much stamp set from Stampin' Up (this is not new, but only one stamp was used in it and it still stamps like new)
A bottle of Silver Fox Smooch
and a little bag of assorted charms, brads, gems, etc.

I will be choosing the winner of this give away on July 1st via random.org. What do you have to do to have a chance to win it? Nothing except comment on this post so that I know you're in it. Of course I'd love it if you spread the word about the giveaway so that more people will come see my blog and hopefully like what they see and decide to follow me, but it's not a requirement.

Enjoy your day, and thanks as always for looking!

Hahaha! that is just so very funny. I think I will store that saying away in my little grey cells for when my DH gets naughty again. I just love your humour.

I'll be glad to give you a shout, next time I blog, you can give someone else a chance at the fantastic candy though, because I have already been lucky in getting something from you. Thanks very much for making me laugh!!

Happy Blogaversary and for the chance to win such a nice package of prizes! I love your card you made for the divorce. So sad that we have to make those cards but that is life and a card is certainly needed. What a nice group to make cards for people you don't even know.
