Crafty Cardmakers DT - New Challenge

As it's April Fool's Day, our latest challenge over at Crafty CardMakers is being hosted by Suze, who has chosen the theme of Humour. 
Suze says perhaps a use funny image or sentiment, or you might just want to add some googly eyes. Remember, laughter is the best medicine - so have fun! 

On offer this week is a $10 GIFT VOUCHER from DI'S DIGI DOWNLOADS and a fab prize from HOBBY ART
Please make sure tho' that you read and follow the rules for our challenges so that you can have a chance of nabbing one of these prizes!
I confess to scratching my head a bit with this challenge - mostly because I was bothered that what I found funny might not be someone else's idea of humour....... in the end I had a 'light bulb' moment and came up with an idea.

I settled on a monochrome colour scheme and opted for quite a CAS design.

The stamp set came from somewhere in the USA and I have had for absolute ever. I had intended to put it into the 'charity' basket last year (as with most of my 'never used' stash over 3 years old!) but am glad now that I forgot!!

All stamped with Memento Black onto white textured linen card.  

The spotty paper was a freebie download from I think Jak Heath (again a long time ago!) and I layered it and the stamped images onto black card.

The three different sizes of black buttons were from my Button Box and I threaded some black and white twine through them.

Someone else shares my sense of humour anyway, cos this card went into the 'Pink Stash' and was there about 5 minutes before it was bought!

Please pop over to my teamies blogs and check out their creations - they'd love to see you.
Have fun with this challenge and I can't wait to visit you all - 'cos there's nothing like a smile and giggle to brighten up your day is there?
