It's a Friday Funny! :)

TGIF indeed! 

  Growing up in the military, this holiday always stands out special in my heart.  My dad retired after 25 years of active duty service and my brother is still serving :)  I spend quiet moments thanking all of our soldiers for their galiant and brave services to our country, and I'll be spending a sad moment visiting the military cemetery where dad is buried.  
To all the soldiers and families in the military, I salute you!

Now back to enjoying Friday, how about a Friday Funny!
I just love Stella from Bugaboo - she is so sassy!
Barb, who is mentioned on my blog often ::: Hi Barb! :::
is the hostess this month of the SOTC {that's the 
Sistehood of the Traveling Cards} card group, created over at SCS.
She just celebrated her bday in October + gave us this wickedly funny theme:

For September and October--due on Halloween, October 31st--we are not making Halloween or Fall Cards this year--but birthday cards! YUP--my birthday is in October and it is a pretty big one this year. So--I am asking everyone to make a humorous birthday card for the swap. It can have some of those comical "older images" or a funny saying-image or you can use some hilarious background paper--you get the idea. Funny, sarcastic, witty, anything that makes you laugh out loud when you see it! 
We all have friends and/or relatives who appreciate a card that makes them belly laugh when they see the card or read what is inside. Bring on the laughs and maybe tears if laughing too hard--let's Celebrate With Laughter!

I grabbed my Stella birthday image and got to work!

 Inside of the card sentiment!  LOL!  It's from Bugaboo w/ this image :)

I went with a red, white and blue theme in honor of Veteran's Day and Barb's
annual Red, white and blue swap that she holds - woot!
The inside is plainer than I would have liked but I was already 
behind in getting this in the mail and didn't have time to get fussy
with it - hopefully the swappers will forgive me this time - eeek!

Thanks for stopping by today ~ I wish you well!
