Orange You Somethin'?

Hey, all! Happy Friday eve! Just got back from a haircut...cut off 4 inches and I'm feeling fresh & ready for the first day of school!

Today I thought I'd share a special card I made for my sister. She found out recently that a short story of hers is being published! She--like most English teachers I know--has dreamed about being an author for years, and now it's official! Woohoo!

Aren't these stamps the cutest? I really can't resist fruity stuff or Kawaii-style faces OR puns, so I just had to own this set (another goody I picked up at CHA).

This card reminded me of a joke we used to tell in elementary school:
"Knock knock."
"Who's there?"
"Banana."
"Banana who?"
"Knock knock."
"Who's there?"
"Banana."
"Banana who?"
"Knock knock."
"Who's there?"
"Orange."
"Orange who?"
"Orange you glad I didn't say 'banana'?"

Stamps: Feelin' Fruity? (My Favorite Things)
Paper: Aqua Mist, PTI kraft, Bazzill white, SU pp
Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black
Accessories: Michaels ribbon, dimensionals

This card is so sweet. I do remember this poem from when I was little. I got about 7 inches cut off at the beginning of summer. Not by choice. It was supposed to be a trim. :(
Congrats to your sister. I bet she is ecstatic. :)
