Friendships can be Funny

I think we all know these funny, funny men!  Laurel and Hardy still make me LOL.  When Stampsmith announced their friends and friendship challenge, I knew just what stamp to use.

I made the background using alcohol inks.  This card is being entered in the Stampsmith challenge, Simon Says Stamp and Show a word, and Linda's Grungy Monday where we were watch Tim Holtz as he demonstrated Adirondack Alcohol Inks, then create our own alcohol ink piece! 
WAIT DON'T GO YET....YA' JUST GOTTA' SEE WHAT ELSE I DID.....


Yep.........I really did it!  I remember seeing Tim's heat gun alcohol inked many moons ago....have always wanted to do it, and that's the end of the story! lol  Hope it gave you a good chuckle, DH really feels I have lost it completely.

Big hugs friends..........without friends we have nothing!

Love your inked heat gun! I can just imagine the joy you had while you were creating it. Like I've said before, your mind and mine work differently! Apparently your DH's does too! LOL!!!!

Well, I have to say that is the snazziest heat gun I have ever seen. LOL. Love that sentiment paired with the Laurel and Hardy image. Your background is so pretty too. Thank you for joining us at the Stampsmith Challenge Blog.

Fun image to use for the SS challenge, love the colorful AI BG! Fun way to alter the heat gun, if I did that I'd at least be able to find it on my desk!

I enjoy a good sense of humour and you definitely have one! You did a good job with the alcohol inks technique and I like the little stamps you used to complete the colored background. I also applause your heating tool makeover!
