Doubledog Dare Challenge- Humor :)














Our Doubledog Dare Challenge was hosted this week by Anne (jdmommy) and she challenged us to make a humorous card. We'd love it if you played along, we could all use a laugh to get us through a cold winter day. (If you post on SCS please use DDC in your keywords so we can find you.)
I combined this with today's Limited Supply Challenge which was to make a card that is slightly different than how you would normally approach it. I really wanted to do more coloring and shading on the main image, but only colored in the bird. I kept it embellishment free which was really hard for me, and I reached for a set that I haven't used in at least a year. An added bonus is that it is a flat card and will not require extra postage!
I have always loved Snoopy, ever since I was a little kid. I have quite a collection of Snoopy stamps (and other collectibles) because he just makes me happy. Peanuts was an all time favorite comic of mine along with The Family Circus, Calvin & Hobbes, and the Farside Gallery. When I was a little girl I wanted to be Brenda Starr when I grew up.
What were some of your favorites?

Hi Joanne!

This is adorable. I'm the biggest Snoopy fan. This is one of my favorite images of him. It's just too cute with him laughing and holding his chest:)

Have a Happy Valentine's Day!
