This is going to be a lot easier for me as I can't bend too well and I can reach these. There is a method in his madness - you see!!
Anyway - this is the card I am posting today, it was made earlier this year at the request of my friend. A friend of hers was approaching a milestone birthday and as she is 'the life and soul of the party' type, it was felt a humerous card like this would really be appreciated. I had to change the number of years on the sentiment because it actually said "It was a smiley face 50 years ago".
As I've said before, I know that, on one hand, many of you don't like these stamps, but on the other, many of you love them - hence the reference to marmite. This one does make me smile though and I do know that it made the birthday girl giggle - alot!!!
Unfortunately this was made prior to me starting my blog and, although it was photographed, I didn't take notes of the paper/card I used. I think you can see that there are a few Spellbinder dies there and I used some vintage ribbon, buttons and also Dew Drops from my stash.
I do hope that some of you like this one as much as I do. Anything that makes me chuckle is OK by me.
I had five requests for cards last week - but I didn't start any as I was having my week off - now I have to get down to it. I'm making a 10 year Anniversary card for my next door neighbours to give to their friends. I also have four 'special' Christmas cards to make for an ex-colleague who I worked with. He has 18 year old twins - one girl and one boy so, whilst I am blogging, I thought I would ask my blog friends if they know of any funny/jokey/comedy type Christmas stamps that I can use on the card for his 18 year old son.
Any thoughts would be really welcome, I don't mind what type of stamp ie solid or digi.
I had a look for some challenges yesterday and I would like to enter my card into the following -
