CASology: Week 188: Laugh!

CASology has challenged us to make you laugh this week!  It gave me the perfect opportunity to pull out a stamp set that is ages old, and I've used this sentiment so many times - mostly for older friends ... you'll get my drift when you see my card [one can hope?].

For CASology Week 188 a card I've made with our little peanut in mind ... [ahem - you've never seen a tinier bum] ... where the little phrase: au contraire is totally apropos ...

Inkadinkadoo "Little Cupcake" circa 2007
Winnie & Walter Noelle Cutaways
and a snippet for her bow!
 

Still waiting for the day when I can hold her - until then I am putting together a few cards for her caregivers... there are many!

Thanks to Jacquie Southas, I'm honored to add:

Sooooo cute! LOVE that sentiment! Unfortunately, I did not have a stamp I was thrilled with, so I ordered a few -- then I can work on mine for her parents!

So good to hear your little grandchild is putting on weight. Its so hard when they come early and small. I know with my twins I hought we would never reach that 5lb goal so they could come home, it was a long journey but ohh so worth it.
Small of course means lots of extra cuddles when the time is right.
Love your card, the image and the sentiment so clever.
Hugs and best wishes to you and yours Aileen

Hilarious card, and totally appropriate for your little peanut's caregivers. They will roar with laughter when they see it, I'm sure! I can already see this little treasure being handed around for everybody to see. Hoping that very soon, everybody in your family will get some snuggles & cuddles with your new little Granddaughter!

This is brilliant, Michele! The sentiment goes perfectly with her facial expression. :D Loving the white on white layers and the pop of pink too. Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!
