Tim Hawkins inspired Digi Sentiment

I love to laugh! :)

Most would consider me a fairly serious but friendly person when they first meet me (okay, I'm a bit of a pushover)...and I suppose I am kind of a no nonsense type of person. Once you get to know me though you find out that there's another side to me. I think most people are probably like that, with the exception of those who are extremely well adjusted, or just plain crazy.

Speaking of which...

Have you ever heard of Tim Hawkins? He has inspired this next digital sentiment. He has got to be one of the funniest comedians I have ever heard, and his humor is CLEAN, although slightly WaRpEd!

Honestly, I just about fell off the couch laughing! In fact, I laughed so hard, I had a hard time getting my breath the first time I heard him. Some of his antics....well....I'll include a short video of some of his clips. Funny, funny guy!!

Anyway, here's the sentiment. I hope you like it! :)

And here it is laid out a little differently. I thought you might want to use the first part on the front of a card, and the last part on the inside.

I just love the way Sharon, from Card Creations by Sharon Joy used one of these sentiments in her post 'It's Hard to be a Twinkie in a Ding Dong World." Isn't it an incredibly suitable application?! Just love her card!

And here's the clips of Tim Hawkins...

Hope you enjoy the digi's! I think I may be addicted...

I always love to hear your comments, and would love if you sent me a link when you do make something using one of my digi's! :)

Thanks for visiting!
