The Evil Acorn and a Lot of Mid-Brain Shenanigans

You can say we are evolved beings, capable of higher thought, and the most advanced life form in the galaxy.

But the fact of the matter is, when there's a full moon - everyone becomes a complete lunatic.

Luckily I have two little beasts living with me that tip me off a few days before the full moon that society is about to break down.

I notice little psychotic breaks in the cats - bouts of crazy brain, some fighting and I look up at the sky and say to myself -

People go completely off the rails on the internet and off for a few days, and then, thankfully, recover. For slightly less than a month.

The best thing to do is to not respond to anything during this period in which humans come down with crazy brain. They can't help themselves, and we should leave it all to the professionals, God help them. Take a moment to appreciate the nurses, police, baristas, firefighters and Community Managers who are on the front lines of each full moon battle.

I can't say for sure that that was my inspiration for my card for today's challenge, except that I can.

I had tried for DAYS to make anything halfway decent, and failed, and then the mid-brain full moon induced crazies I observed lit an inspirational fire, and I completely perverted the adorable Acorny Thank You set and twisted it to my dark purposes. Muahahahahah!!

Built for Free Using: My Stampin Blog

My apologies to the designer of this cute and innocent stamp set. #sorrynotsorry

The team challenge for today was to choose any technique from our tutorial section at Splitcoast, so I did the bokeh technique in the background with two different alphabet sets, just very lightly though so it didn't interfere with my stamping.

I had forgotten about that fun sentiment from Mingle All the Way.

Anyway - I'll go back into hiding now and wish you the best in your own battle against Full Moon Crazy Brain, or FMCB. The struggle is real, y'all.



  1. Bats in the belfry. This card is brilliant!

  2. Too stinkin' cute! Love it! Almost makes me want to get the acorn bundle (which heretofore I have resisted purchasing....) CURSE YOU! Lol!

  3. That is so cute! I love it!

  4. Ha ha ha your card made me laugh - brilliant! :-) x

  5. if anything epitomizes the "full moon crazies", this certainly does. I usually call it "bat nuts", so this really speaks to me. Your background is lovely and that sentiment really SCREAMS Halloween.

  6. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this card!!! Talk about thinking 'out of the box'. This is just brilliant!

  7. I Love it! And your blog is terrific! It always brightens my day - even when the crazies are about. Thanks!

  8. Super cute and such a fabulous way to think outside of the Acorny!

  9. Great card. love getting your posts in my inbox. Have a wonderful weekend. Boo!


  10. The struggle is VERY real! LOL. I am not sure why I type LOL, because it's no laughing matter in our house! You have mad skills!!! This is truly a one of a kind acorn! Fabulous card!

  11. O.M.G! I know exactly what you mean!!! I work in an elementary school. Nothing is crazier than 90 kids in a lunch room during the full moon! And you can't even imagine the noise level! LOL ;) Your card is adorably creepy too, by the way! :)


Every time you leave a comment, a new LOLcat is born. ALSO - don't panic if you don't see your comment right away - I moderate my comments to keep those spammers out, so your comment will show up in short order. Unless you're linking me to Russian brides or Nigerian princes.
