Running out of puff

Many thanks for your kind comments on my first Humorous make for the Country View Challenge. Glad so many of you liked it!
Today I am showing a second inspiration make on the Be humorous theme, chosen by Monika. I had had a flash of inspiration for my first piece but sadly the muse deserted me and I resorted to my one and only humorous stamp for this card.

The image is the Pig Bros. Birdhouse from Impression Obsession, stamped with Sepia Versafine ink. I then coloured it with alcohol markers. For those not familiar with the Three Little pigs fable, Wikipedia has the low down here.

To mount the image I used several dies from the MFT Blueprint 7 and paper from the Curiosity corner by Trimcrafts.

I hope my make will raise a smile, maybe even a chuckle, and I can't wait to see what fun creations you creative people come up with for our Country View Challenge. There is still plenty of time to enter and, as usual, there is a £20 voucher to win for one lucky crafter...

Thanks for coming by,
I am entering the Paperbabe, Addicted to stamps, SSS Wednesday Challenge, Penny Black and more challenges.
