April Fools Day ~ Joke

Happy April Fool's Day!  

Hey, all kidding aside, Cut It Up has a super fun theme this time.  Tell us a joke or riddle in your project!  Yes, that's right.....make us laugh!  Remember to use a die cut to be eligible to win a great prize from our sponsor: as Cute as a Button!

This card tells the oldest horse joke in the world.  Every time someone tells it, we all groan!  I thought this picture was perfect to highlight this horrible joke!  hahaha

I imported the picture of my grand-girl and Thunder into Cricut Design Space.  Then I chose the squares, cloud bubble from CTMH Artiste and grouped it.  I copy/pasted it.  I welded the copy.  I returned to the first set and added my text from Chloe Whimsy Text and finished it by flattening it onto a rectangle.  I used the Print and Cut Feature for the set with the printing.  The 2nd set was used to make a mask.  

Once printed, I placed the mask on top and used a stamp to put in the paint strokes to match her dress.  I adhered it onto a card front and added the little embellishment -THAT'S SO FUNNY- from Graphically Speaking!
