Furry and Funny is the Theme at the Outlawz Greetings

It's time to laugh out loud, or rather make us laugh out loud at the Outlawz Monday Greetings this week. The theme is Furry and Funny. I created my card inspired by the old saying "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush."
The image is called "Trotsky" and is from one of our sponsors, Dr. Digi. There are loads of funny, sweet and funky images at Dr Digi's Shop.
I've started digging deep into my stash of leftover papers (I'm finally making some headway in the paper chase that is my craft room). I pulled out some embossed cardstock and sanded it to pull out the white core of the paper. I had punched some dog prints while at my daughter-in-law's house a couple months ago and lo and behold I found them! LOL They make a nice border for my image.
Instead of tying a bow with my ribbon, I twisted it, then stapled it to hold together. I like the look-something different. A star hides the staple.

My next project is an altered candy container, shaped like a house.
The image I used is from QKR, and it's called "This Much." I colored my bunny with Copics before popping him onto my Easter candy container. You know, most people think of a candy house and think of the witch in the story Hansel and Gretel. But never fear, my bunny is not planning to fatten you up & eat you. No wait, he is beckoning you to "enter" his house and help yourself to some candy, so I guess you could say he is planning to fatten you up...hmmm, I'm sure he doesn't plan on eating you later. But you'd better not take the chance. Just leave all the candy for me (mwahahahaha).

I hope you have time this week to create for the Furry & Funny theme. Don't forget to link your project up with the Outlawz Monday Greetings challenge for your chance to win prizes!
