Now that we've announced last weeks winners, let's introduce our new design team feature and Janet's darling feature!  She created this fun card that, let's face it, could be so many of us!!

Hello Ai fans! Today I'm making fun of my own frantic lifestyle for the Tickle Our Funny Bone challenge using the new #5513 Hot Mess Laugh Lines set. This set features a lady who has had a morning! She's collapsed into her favorite chair and has even spilled some of her most sacred energy drink - coffee or tea. Or maybe it's a little wine?? Who knows for sure? There are a huge number of sentiments included in this set. In total there are 18 possible thoughts this exhausted lady could be having! You're sure to find several that fit what you're envisioning.

To start this project, I first stamped the lady in Memento Black ink on to alcohol ink friendly cardstock. Her pants look a lot like my favorite sweats. They are purple with a white stripe on the sides so of course that's how I colored these pants! After I colored the entire image, I scanned it with my Brother ScanNCut and cut it with just a white border. You could also easily fussy cut this image or stamp and color it directly on a panel. There are many ways to get a similar result. By the way, I've included the entire list of Copic markers I used at the end of this post.  

Before starting the background, I also colored and cut out a clock and a wall light from 5324 MB Wall Accessories Set. These little accessories are perfect for my scene. I decided to use patterned papers to create an interior home scene for wallpaper and for the wood flooring. I cut and glued the pieces onto an A2 sized panel knowing I would cut a smaller piece out with a Square Double Stitched Die. Even though this wastes some paper, I am ok with it because it eliminates the stress of making sure the paper edges were perfect. I selected the second largest die in the set and laid out my pieces to make sure I was happy with the proportion of wall to floor.

I stamped a sentiment on the panel that is the story of my life. It says, "I'm sure I'm late for something." I'm sure some of you can relate! I applied the finished panel on an aqua colored metallic cardstock cut with the largest Ai Square Double-Stitched Die. Then I glued that piece onto a chocolate brown A2-sized card base. Now my lady was ready to be enter stage right! 

Below is a closer look at my tired lady. I get a real chuckle out of her. I hope you do too.
