Calendar Girls - April

Miss April - aka Terry - issued the Calendar Girls a water themed challenge this month.   We were to use some type of water on our card creation.

I had recently gone through my digital images just prior to the challenge being posted.   As soon as I heard the water theme, I remembered a funny little image from Hambo Stamps.  I just had to use it.

Now this part is one of those things that you kinda have to be there, but funny just the same.   There was a really dumb movie called Super Troopers.   Did I say it was a dumb movie?  Well, there was an infamous scene you might remember....the meow scene.   The premise is to throw the word meow in with what you are saying when talking to people and see if you can get away with it.   The person you are with is to count how many times you get away with it.  The other part is to try and do it when the person you are with is least expecting it, so they have to play along.  Stupid right?!  Try it!  It will make you laugh like no other.    Ssshhhh, it is a game that we play with our friends.  

So you know that this card is going to our friend {meow} with the 'how do you like me meow' saying on it. 

Please stop by and view the other Calendar Girl's creations.  Their blog links are listed to the right of this post under Calendar Girls. 

Hope you have a fun day!   Really, try it.  It will make you laugh!
