It's an UN-birthday!



Hi friends!!  Today's post is rather unusual ... and it's all my fault!  LOL! ;)   My birthday (ugh) is coming up at the end of this month and we've been joking about it ~ me saying I'm older than dirt.  The kids think it's funny.  Me ... not so much!  I'd rather just not have another one ;)  So, in our Crafters of Faith SCS group, I proposed another mini-challenge with this thought in mind ..... create a card/project with an un-birthday theme!  Now - confession time - when I thought of this theme and challenged them to create with it, I didn't have a CLUE what even *i* was going to do!  It sounded neat!  It sounded fun! It sounded intriguing!  But then I just sat and sat and thunk and thunk ....... and well, this is best I could come up with.  Eeek!  


Using this adorable Whipper Snapper stamp, I tried not to make this a "happy birthday" card right off and sort of disguised it as a funny celebration - and hopefully the "pun" makes sense!  My dd13 looked at it and went 'uh-huh ....' 
so maybe not so much, ROFL!   I paired it with some non-birthday paper from Fancy Pants, colored up the puppy with prismacolor markers and added some buttons *smile!* 



  

I tell you, I am super curious to see what the other COF girls came up!  If you'd like to take a peek, please check my sidebar as they will be posting all weekend :)


Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!
