Today I'm channeling our wonderful resident SCS stamping humorist, Anne Ryan with my HYCCT card, for the challenge - You had me in Stitches!
Meet Melvin - I really think he is a relative of many of Anne's stamps!!! She MAY even have Melvin somewhere in her family....
anyway - He makes me laugh - even just sitting in his packaging - which I hadn't taken him out of until today! Along with this perfect sentiment to go with him - I paper pieced Melvin's clothes - and stamped with a stitch stamp around the edges. Melvin is colored with Copics, cut out and popped up on foam tape.
Melvin and the sentiment are both Art-impressions stamps - the stitch stamp is from Waltzingmouse
Inside - I made a sentiment with my Brother P-touch label maker that says "Like Mixing Plaid with Prints" (this is in direct reference to Melvin's outfit - in case you missed that his shirt is plaid and his pants are polka dots!)

OMGoodness, Ms. Julia, this a hoot! I'm impressed that you have Melvin in your collection. For some reason, I love humor. Do you suppose that has anything to do w/being Irish? Your card is just a hoot. Mr. Melvin is certainly a high stylin' gentleman. Thanks for the shout out!
