Fun Monday Challenge #28 - Surprise others with humor and goodwill

"Fun City" collage by Lani, textures by FlyPaper.
This little challenge comes from an awesome deck of inspiration cards, Plant Seeds and Pick the Blooms, by Lynne Franks, gifted to me by Gretchen Miller (thank you Gretchen).  And actually if you click on the Plant Seeds link above, you will find a pretty inspiring website, well worth the trip.

The idea with the deck is to pick a card and use it as your inspiration for the day.  So I picked "Keep humor and laughter as vital ingredients in my life."  On the back of the card there's some explanation and a suggestion for action.  The explanation was that basically humor is a resilience strategy, that if you can keep a sense of humor especially in the tough times, that can reduce tension and also keep things in perspective.  The action for the day was to make an effort to be playful, surprise others with humor and goodwill, do something that will give you joy, remember to laugh.

So I thought why not make it an art directive, surprise yourself and others with an art piece which combines humor and goodwill.  And as always have fun with this and feel free to share your work or play on Instagram by adding #14SecretsChallenge to your description, or by adding your photo to our Flickr pool.
