Grandma Ran Over a Reindeer...


Allison's Suggestive Sunday challenge this week was to create a funny card. I just love this stamp from You Know You're Old When (GinaK). When ever I see it, I imagine the lady punching the gas and trying to run someone down.

I got the idea that maybe Granny could take revenge on a reindeer because of that song that gets played on the radio every Christmas, "Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer. "

I stamped the granny stamp and then drew in a scared deer, with a road between them. I colored the images with Koh-i-noor pencils, blended with OMS. I thought she needed angry eyebrows, so I masked off her eyebrows when I stamped them and then drew some new ones.

I printed the sentiment from my computer. In case you can't read it, it says, "After hearing the song, 'Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer," one too many times, Nana Milly decides to take matters into her own hands..."

I hope you like it, Allison!

Annapurna found a you tube video of the song that inspired this card. Here is the link if you want to view it. Thanks Anna!

Thanks for stopping by today. Have some fun!
