Knock Knock….

I have a project today which is a little joke book
I made using the tutorial from Nicole Heady’s blog.This project is basically for my son to give as a thank you gift to a nurse at the hospital where my husband works. My son is a stamp collector. During a party he had mentioned to the nurses that he collects stamps. Since then this nurse has been collecting all the stamps from her posts from South Africa and Ireland and giving them to my son. He loves to get stamps from different countries and now had 5 stamp books full. Anyway, he wanted to give a thank you card to her and a gift to her. He is 10 years and  what would a 10 year old give as a thank you gift?  Just then my DD came to me wanting to tell jokes. Ta Da……………. a joke book would be lovely!

So google search and found Nicole had a tutorial on her blog. Here is the link to her tutorial. I love the knock knock jokes as they are simple, clean and perfect. She also had a pdf of a few knock knock jokes to download. So it was quick and perfect gift from a 10 year old. Thanks Nicole!
Here is the joke book and the card.
I have used SU’s Bashful Blue and Old Olive cardstock, PTI’s Kraft cardstock, PTI’s Retro background stamp set, Delighful Dahlia and Big Bold Wishes stamp sets, SU’s basick ( me being dyslexic!!!) Basic Black and Whisper White stamp set (what was I thinking?) ink pads, PTI’s Green Boutique and Pink Pattern pattern paper, PTI’s Simply Chartreuse felt, SU’s brads,Kaisercraft’s rhinestones, SU’s dazzling Diamonds and Prima Leaves. 
My son loooves this and can’t wait to give it. He now wants more of this joke book to give friends!!!lol!
On the life is complicated front, its under control now. I have done a lot of the things on the “to do” list. Feels so much better. The only thing left is tomorrow’s music theory exam. All of us are prepared for it.Its time to get it over and done with! Then Sunday is a relaxed day. Hope my husband does not come home saying ” Honey! I have invited so and so for lunch (or dinner)!” I don’t know about yours, but my husband only tells me at the last minute that he has invited somebody home! Fingers crossed. Garage door is opening. He is back home. Got to go now. Have a great weekend!
