"Workin' 9 to 5...."

...What a way to make a livin'"

Remember that song?  If you do, I'm pretty sure you're singing it in your head now!  LOL
I'm so happy that I no longer work out of the house 9-5!  I have really been enjoying my time at home, and being at home has allowed me to visit and create with you!

I have one more exciting announcement that I want to share with you.  Today is my first DT post with The Crafter's Cafe Challenge Blog!  I am so excited to be joining up with this crafty team and adding them to my current DT positions!

Our challenge for this week is..."Ha, ha, ha...Very Funny".
 We wanna see your sense of humor shine this week!

And, we have some sponsors with a great sense of humor for this challenge...


as well as ...


I had so much fun working with the Bugaboo image "Escape Key".  
Here's the card I created...

I colored up the image with my Spectrum Noir markers and mounted it on a dark beige colored mat.  I was rummaging through my stash of papers and found some with numbers, addition and subtraction equations and thought this was perfect to represent an office worker.  I rummaged a little further in my stash and found some sticker fonts that I have owned for a really long time.  Now, sticker fonts are not usually something I use on my creations.  However, I had the 9-5 song running through my head as I was creating so I decided to do a little spoof of it on the card, as the lettering sorta looked like type setting/inputting style to me.  My kids think the joke on the digi is just too funny!

So, rummage through your stamps, and find a little "funny" you could share with us this week.  Remember...laughter is the best medicine.  To get you started, make sure you check out the other DT creations over at The Crafter's Cafe...they'll have you in stitches as well!

Until next time...

This card has been shared in the following challenges...
LEJ Designs..."Anything Goes"
Craft Your Passion..."Music Inspired Card"...(song Workin' Nine to Five)
Order of the Opus Gluei..."Need a Lift" (a dose of humor)

This had me not only humming that song but smiling at the card it inspired. I love that digi sentiment, I have certainly wished that a number of times at the office! This is fun, sassy, and whimsical and who wouldn't feel uplifted to have a card that inspired that kind of response!

Congratulations on your DT gig, that is marvelous for you! Thank you for sharing your creation with us at Opus Gluei, I hope you stop back by and see what our upcoming theme inspires in you!
