Monday Mornings!

Everyone seemed to like the Dog/Hydrant card from last Monday and got a kick out of my warped humor, you must all be a little "warped" too. So I thought I'd start a theme and post a humorous card every Monday, to get the week rolling with a little laugh or at least a smile?! I love doing funny little images, they usually lend themselves to fun colors, layouts and coloring with Copics. SO.... moving on, here is my Monday Card. Now--- I was thinking Monday Cards should have a "Funny Name" for a regular weekly posting... but I could come up with nothing!! You know like "Funny Monday" -- but obviously something much more clever-- so I'm taking suggestions --- pleeease!! Give me some ideas!!! I got nothin'!! Leave me a comment with your suggestion for a Monday Theme name. There could be something in it for you, for coming up with the winning suggestion! This card is 5 1/2" Square and lattice type look was created with the two different size Corner Punches from SU and ribbon. It really is a quickie layout! Little doodles were created around the Nestie borders using a Black Micron Pen and Copics. AND... I let Martha out to play, I was so addicted to the Martha punches and could not stop using them on every card I made, so I made myself take a break from them.... but she's baaaack! Obviously I was over using them, as people were commenting -- Where's Martha!!! lol! Happy Monday to you guys!

  1. Cute card - good pairing of the frog and the sentiment!

    Great idea to do a funny card every Monday. So, as you know, I'm partial to alliteration, so here are a few suggestions along those lines:

    Merry Monday
    Mischievous Monday
    Misbehaving Monday

    Can't wait to see what you end up with!

  2. First thing to pop into my head was Funday Monday. Reminds me of the song of long ago, Monday Monday by someone or other.

  3. Hi Jenny!! This is a great card!!

  4. This is so cute Jenny and I'm lovin' the sentiment! I think your Monday fun cards idea sounds great. So okay, here's a tongue twister:

    Funky Monkey Monday

    LOL!!!! Bwahahahahha!!!!

  5. How about
    Monday Madness,
    Monday Mayhem,
    Monday's Montage or
    A Monday Moment???

    LOVE this the pink paper and how clever of you to use the corner punches this way!

    Mary L.

  6. I love your card! Believe or not, I have this same stamp! It cracks me up everytime I use it. Here are my suggestions:

    Monday Madness
    Monday's malady
    Monday mania

  7. LMAO! Love that sentiment!! And, that image is hilarious!
    Allright, I think I have a couple of good title ideas:

    Mirthful Monday or
    Monday's Mirth

    These just came to mind too:

    Monday Monkey-bizniz or
    Monkeyin' Around Monday or
    Monday Merriment
    OK, that's it! It's fun to think up stuff like this!

  8. I meant to ask you if you've used stamps from Hambo Stamps. They have the best sense of humor over there. You'll find yourself laughing out loud!

    Have fun & let me know what you think!

  9. I'm so sorry to post YET AGAIN! But, I was picking up around the house and the old song "Manic Monday" by the Bangles popped into my head! (From back in the 80's)
    Anyway, just had to suggest that one too!

  10. I love that card...I would send that to my mother-in-law! I love your doodling..makes me realize I don't think outside of the box.

  11. Hahahaha! Nothing like a preppy frog in over his head...

    Merriment Monday
    The Giggling Stamper
    You're Such A Card


  12. Love your site.

    How about


  13. Monday Merriment keeps sliding off my tongue, and then I found someone has already suggested it!

    Mad Monday Manic Mania is another, or Mad Maniacal Monday Mania.

    This is fun! Can't wait to hear your decision.

    Also, glad to see Martha is baaack, although she now has some competition from the EK Success flat punches that are fab!

    And finally, thank you for the tip on Sharon's silk ribbon by May Arts. Ohmygosh - that stuff is luscious beyond belief and adds such elegance to a card. I'm in heaven........

  14. Dang, girl!!!! I darn near spewed on the screen!!!

  15. Such a cute card, love it! How about these suggestions:

    Madcap Monday
    Monday Monday
    Wacky Monday
    Amusing Monday
    Mirthful Monday

    How are those?

  16. OH my goodness, Jenny! this is just way too cute!! Love the ribbon treatment too!

  17. Great card! Looks like you got some great suggestions! I will look forward to your "warped" Monday postings LOL!

  18. Love this card. The colors are gorgeous, as is the layout, and the image is hilarious. All I've got is Monday madness. It's late so not much left to work with tonight, sorry. Love the card. I'll be back if something really clever comes to mind.

  19. Luv this card as usual-you are too cute! What a great idea to have for a Monday when we all need a little laugher. Looks like you've got some great ideas for names already, but if I think of something different I'll let you know.

    Peace and Luv,

  20. Great card!! I love your idea about the Monday card!! I have no witty name for you, but some of the posters above me have some good ideas.

    P.S. my stamps came yesterday! I mounted 2 and used them for my 2 challenge cards today. The rest still have to be mounted, but I am sooo gonna do the peaches ASAP-just lovely!! Thanks and hugs,

  21. Wonderful work on the card, I am still laughing about the sentiment and focal point. TFS and the laugh.

  22. Love your card and that frog is the cutest! A couple more idea's for you.

    Crazy Monday
    Way Out Monday
    Off the Wall Monday
    Foolish Monday
    Wild Monday

  23. Love the card and all the polka dots! All my Monday suggestions have already been taken! My fav is amusing mondays! Miriam

  24. Awww Geez -- we have to wait until NEXT Monday for your decision??? Call in Martha - maybe she can help!

    I love this stamp - I have the set of three with a so-called "blessing" too. I thought the blessing was Irish, my friend was sure it was Swedish, and Snopes says Irish. So take your pick. I'll send a photo of my version.

  25. I love this!!! Your background is gorgeous and unique and the image is beautiful!!

  26. Cute card!
    I like "Monday Paper Caper" for a name.


  27. Very pretty and awesome card! I love the image and the sentiment, they are so funny! Love the colors and the lattice too!

  28. That sentiment does it for me!!! Great embossing on this card, and that image is pretty special with this sentiment :)... Glad Martha is back (I am a fan!!! - gotta have those edge punches!!!)

    Suggestion for mondays:

  29. This is such a fun card -- love your use of ribbon here and that adorable image -- LOL!!!

  30. WHAT A HOOT! Very funny and super job on the card! Love all the texture!
