Fluffy? Yes - Cute? Hmmmm

Do you ever make yourself laugh?  Just one of those moments that strikes you as being really funny, but no one else gets it?  And the more you think about it, the more you get the giggles?

That's what happened when I added the sentiment to my card for SECRET CRAFTER'S SATURDAY CHALLENGE "Cute n Fluffy".  Toad came over to see what the fuss was about and just walked away shaking his head.

Ingredients for this card:
Stamped Image  High Hopes - Leo
Medium  Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Sentiment  Lili of the Valley Ticket Words
Papers  Dovecraft Funky Vintage (last sheet, sob)
Matting Card  DCWV Neutral Stack
Extras  Fine line gold border peeloffs

I think I have found a way to stop a coughing fit.  Hold your breath!  It's not practical long term, but it seems to at least stop me spluttering til my nose runs.  Just thought I'd share that one with you.

Hugs, Sxx

Hahaha, I get random fits of giggles the whole time, my poor little niece doesn't know what's going on most of the time, even thinking about it makes me laugh :D

This card is SO cute, I love lions! The papers go great with it too :D I would just love a hug off a big cuddly lion haha.

Hehehe, I am glad Im not the only one who gets the giggles over really random things! I a case of the major giggles the other week in Morrisons, there was a bag of mini pork pies on the reduced shelf that stated they were 'handraised pork pies' and I had a vision of all these little baby pork pies in a nursery being raised by hand! Hubby couldnt get why I was in such a state, well to me it was funny! Lol
Fab card btw! Hugs

My gosh! Look at the those PAWS and CLAWS on that lion. He is so sweet looking, but um... not sure about the hug part. I get the giggles about random things all the time. I hate it when people ask "what" because usually they don't get it or it ceases to be funny.

I have a good lion joke:
Lady camping in Africa wanders the savannah and finds a wee lion cub, starving, with a huge thorn in its paw. She takes out the thorn, takes him back to camp and feeds him, nursing him back to health. Once he is mature enough she sets him free. Years later she visits a zoo and there is quite a commotion because the lion has escapes his cage and is going on a rampage. The lion is going berserk but then he sees the lady, stops what he is doing and looks at her quizzically. As their eyes meet, she wonders, "Could it really be the same lion?" and rushes to him. He leans back, open his paws wide... And mauls her to death. Guess it probably wasn't the same lion.

Another one of your brill cards, his mane is fabulous and looks like it would be all warm and furry!

As for the laugh, yep! I'm afraid I do the same, why is it men can't understand when we explain why we are laughing? Trouble is it makes me worse LOL
