Jingle Belles, Batman Smells...

There are a gazillion challenge blogs, but one of my current favorites is Jingle Belles.  They announce their new challenge every Friday, and since this past Friday was April Fool's Day, this week's challenge is to make a humorous Christmas card.  This is totally out of my comfort zone, but that is why it is called a challenge, right?

I was inspired by this week's sketch at CardPatterns challenge blog.  I find there sketches so easy to use!

If you know me well, I am curious as to your reaction when you see this sentiment...I sure hope my mom doesn't see this!

This is too stinkin cute for words!! I had this card displayed on the monitor last night when Braeden came by and asked what it was. I said that's a card by my Junebug friend, and he said, "Ahhhh, yes, June! That card is funny, she must have a great sense of humor!!" I said, "you have no idea!!" Then we started talking about your girls, then about the shirts you'd made them, then about hubby's best friend from childhood having two sons with extreme Asperger's, then hubby said he would be telling his/our friend about the shirts you made cause it'll bring a smile to friend's face...she's having a rough time of it all. I absolutely love tongue-in-cheek stuff like this, well most of the time anyway if it's executed in a cute way like this one!! I tend to make Easter cards like these: http://alienanessa.wordpress.com/2008/08/02/caution-cheeky-easter-card/
