DCM Little Extra - Cartoons

Saw the DCM Little Extra challenge on Gillian's blog this morning and instantly thought of this retired SU! stamp set. I think this can qualify as a cartoon, no? :-)

The saying is another side splitter...at least if you have a lower half like mine...I think I could easily be called a "hippie" chick! **chuckle**

I thought I'd do my best to bring back the colors of my parents kitchen during the 70's for the card colors. I think I nailed it!

The word background stamp, usually just stamped in black, was colored with SU! markers. I confess that coloring in the blocks was not my original idea but found on some cards on the Splitcoast site. My hippy girl was stamped in black on vanilla cardstock and colored with markers. Simple card but oh so fun to share!

Happy Creating!

All supplies by Stampin' Up! (Words by Wanda stamp set is retired)
