It Happens

A little back story to these cards! On Tuesday, I received a phone call from my son's bus driver saying he is sick to his stomach. Now I was really hoping he and I escaped the stomach bug that flew through the house a week ago. Fingers crossed for me still!

But sadly it appears the bug caught my son. I met them outside to find my child lying in a puddle of puke on his bus. I haven't seen this much puke from one tiny little person in many many many years. I felt so bad for him as well as the driver and attendant who were actively cleaning the mess. There was so much puke, the child even had it in his ear.

Now when life throws you this curve ball, you can either find some humor in it or cower in disgust. I found the humor and luckily so did they when I handed them these cards!

 Luckily my son has had the same bus crew for two years now so they get spoiled with my projects. But their reaction to these ones were golden! I was a little afraid that they wouldn't get the emoticon meaning. Turns out, they have a magnetic one on the bus that they use for their not so good days! Again, find the humor in life!
I had to think how can I make a 'poop' card more elegant. Well, throw it on some DCWV paper and emboss the rose quarts paper.

I am happy to report he feels better and they had their day made with my smart aleck cards.

Materials Used: 
DCWV 'Rose Quartz' stack
Silhouette cameo 3
Silhouette Studios designer edition
Teresa Collins Mega Runner
Aleene's Original tacky glue


  1. So funny and cute! Wherever did you find the poop? I'm sorry to hear about your son, I hope he's feeling better now and the bus drivers have an awesome sense of humor.

    1. I just googled the poop emoticon and then used the trace and cut feature!

  2. Sorry your kids were sick, but your cards are priceless!
