Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers #139 - Joke

It's new challenge day at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers and today Edna has chosen J is for Joke

Naturally I decided to use stamps from the Katzelkraft Les Chats Russes set because they always make me smile!

The room scene is created from snippets and the joke is generated on the computer. Would you believe it, after years of looking for suitable "speech bubble" stamps and tearing my hair out trying to find digital versions online or in Craft Artist, I've realised they've been there all along on good old Word, and fully customisable too so I could get the "pointy bit" exactly where I wanted it. It's Occam's razor, isn't it? Don't spend time looking for a complicated solution when a simple one works perfectly!

If you, too, are on the quest for speech bubbles, or callouts as they are apparently known, they are in the Draw menu of Word, in the Auto Shapes section. And I have a sneaky feeling that you all, every single one of you, already knew that and have been keeping it from me!

Lots of snippets were used for this so I'm heading over to The Playground with it - as long as Dudley promises not to chase my cats!

Love the little room scene! That might be Duncan, half-asleep yet still all-knowing. :D

Liz said...

Super scene, Jane and a great joke. Brilliant card. xx

Barbara Godden said...

Awesome scene, love the joke but its really true you know, with cats that is.

Jane Willis said...

Haha Sis, that's exactly why I chose cats to be the joke tellers!

Dawn Phillips said...

That's so funny. And the look on his face says it all. Love Dawn x

Hilarious Jane! Well done on finding our how to do the speech bubbles as well. Dudley is behaving - in fact he seems to rather like cats! Not a lot of use for stopping the neighbours moggies from prowling round the garden though.
