Card for Dysfunctional People and a Black Friday Sale!

So my sister in law Carla and I have always wanted to design cards for the folks out there who can't find the right words at their local Hallmark. Mainly because they are or have experienced some kind of dysfunction in their families. So when Milo's ABC's came out, I thought it was the perfect time to make something!


I wanted the outside to be so normal and sweet...I was inspired by THIS Pinterest pin.
Dysfunctional Card #1

I was able to stamp this entire sentiment in a single swoop since the alphabet contains multiples of the same letter. These flowers were stamped lovingly by my pal Laurie Willison when she came to Colorado for a blogging friends get together and happened to not bring a single crafty supply! She saved all her car space for IKEA! (I would too and I benefited from the decision, so I can't complain).



Then the punchline is inside and reads a little something like THIS:
Dysfunctional Card #1 Inside

I wanted it to be a little crooked and wonky to play up the dysfunction. 


Supplies all from i {heart} papers:
Stamps: Lawn Fawn Milo's ABC's and WPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals and dies
Ink: Hero Arts Cubes, Navy


Speaking of i {heart} papers...


IHP is celebrating Black Friday and Cyber Monday with a 20% off store-wide coupon (in stock items only and not valid on gift certificates) on all orders $50 or more, valid through 12/2, Cyber Monday. Use coupon code Black20DT13 at checkout. All orders will ship on Tuesday December 3. Enjoy!


I am going to enter my card in the latest Colourq challenge which I haven't played in quite some time!

  3. LOL!!! The contrast of the beautiful flowers and the funny sentiment is awesome! It reminds me of this product (which I have): http://www.blueq.com/shop/item/229-productId.125837682_229-catId.117440520.html (don't worry, it's not spam). I'm totally pinning this card!

  9. The design is so lovely Wida! And wow, that alpha stamp set is awesome! Although I am a bit confused about the sentiment, is it supposed to be funny or sad?

  10. Firstly, I adore the design and the colours (I feel a case coming on) and secondly, can you hear me laughing?!!! I think the fact that it doesn't look like it's going to be funny (on the outside), makes it even funnier!
