Funny Inspiration

Well I've been very quiet on the card and blog front for a while. Things have been a bit all over the place, & a little bit (to say the least) stressful whilst we've been trying to secure the purchase of our new home. I can gladly say we have now exchanged contracts on it, with just 2hours to go before the deadline! It's been a complicated purchase because it was a house due to go to auction, but we made an offer prior to the auction. The problem with this (as we learnt) is you have to complete before the auction, otherwise the house no matter how much you've spent on surveys, fees etc still goes to auction. It's an old house, with several neighbouring large trees and as such needs a lot of work doing, and because of this also required lots of additional surveys, all absorbing money and time, all edging closer to that deadline and pushing up the stress levels! 
At the end of it all we decided to get away for a few days to chill out.....not to be! We went camping in Wales, only we seemed to be there at the same time as high winds hit the coastline. I can confirm it's not much fun trying to sleep in a tent with winds of upto 54mph.
Anyway with all the stress and strains it's a good job we're being a little lighthearted over at Aud sentiments with a Funny Challenge. Lots of cards to make me giggle is just what the Dr ordered! ;)

For this challenge we are so excited to have Bugaboo as our sponsor. They are giving the winner a whopping 7 digis! Thanks so much!

Here is a little bit about them...

"For many many years I drew mostly cutesy kids graphics, alot of which you’ll find on the Bugaboo site.
But my latest passion is my cranky old boots....
Stella ,Gus, Margaret and the Gals who came after them.

I just LOVE to create them and they seem to be a favorite!

What else can I say?
The name Bugaboo did I come up with it?
Well...... Bugaboo as that is a nickname i have for my kids sometimes."

OK, now onto the challenge. We want to see anything with a funny sentiment!
For my card I've used Bugaboo's 'Stella Love - Person to Annoy' image. It's a great image, that come's with a lovely sentiment. I thought it would make the perfect anniversary card.

I coloured the image with my Pro Markers and thought I'd bring the Blue rinse back into fashion. You don't seem to see it these days. Lol.
I would like to enter the following challenges
