April 1: I is for Ink/Color Mediums 🫣

Hello Humin StamPlings!

I we Hop youre feeling gud. Happy Aprul FulsDay!! It's me and Stan on the Keybord today, haHa! Mom wasunt able to go on track and do today because she was buzzie for Easter and company here for some many days. 

Mom loves April Fuls Day and hated to mist it so we are fooling her! We even made a Card wifs paintY IKNs and water bowl!!! But we haf to wait for Mom to come out to fed us Before we could take a pikchur. I'm a gud helper, but I done know how to do it that. 

Mom will be reely sirprized and laff a lot even tho  we maked a mess!

😲😲😲
Oh, my, what can I say?! These two are going to keep me young! After I stopped laughing and cleaned up these two fur balls and the pools of water and paint all over the place, I could not get them to settle down for the photo! 

This was a great April Fool's Day surprise and Hammy and Stanley are just the sweetest to do a card and post for me to keep me on my I.D.E.A.S. track! (Of course, this means if your daughter or grandson or dog makes a card, you get to post it and play along, too!)

~~~

Enjoy your week! No, seriously, enjoy! LITS!*

As always, thank you for coming by to visit the Playhouse and special thanks to you if you take the time to join as a follower! Now go pull a prank on someone you love!

*Life is too short!

Since I don't have a Hammy and Stanley to keep me on my toes, I live vicariously through you and your little rascals, Darnell. How fun that they made a card to surprise you, and a great card it is.

Leslie Miller said...

This cracked me up, Darnell! Wally used to make Father's Day cards for Rich, but he never wrote the post. Tee hee! I'm seeing your Monday post on Wednesday, but still a great way to start my day. This looks like inky fun for everyone!

Vicky Hayes said...

Haha, what a jolly little pair! I'm not sure I'd have wanted to clear up after them but they have certainly come up with a stylish card!
I have finally managed to remember about I.D.E.A.S and am joining in. I did NOT permit the golden girls to help as they would probably eat the stamps... well Lulu would and then she's try to blame it on Eva!! Vicky x

Pat said...

Well, Hammy and Stanley came up with a great card and I hope you enjoyed Easter with your visitors. I am late with my own card for this week's I.D.E.A.S but got there in the end. x

Vikki H said...

You have fabulous, gifted fur baby friends! Still chuckling

TK said...

Haha! I LOVE that you love April Fools and that Hammy and Stanley decided to help, one can never have too much help. Fun card, fun story, of course! Hope your day was wonderful.

P.S. This is to renew your fun a few more days, as this mail was actually found in a folder all filed away by my 'puter... not sure how I can across it since it was neatly tucked away, unseen previously!

Lynette said...

Too funny, Darnell!! And an awesome card that Hammy and Stanley made. LOL!
