birthdays are like...

Hello friends!  It's a rainy, dreary day here in the PacNW... typical weather for a Memorial Day weekend around here, lol!!  The perfect day to stay inside and make cards... something I plan to do!  Right now I have a card to share that I made for the current LIM challenge.  This week is recipe week and we are asked to use humor on our project.   Oh dear... that was going to be a problem for me.  I don't tend to buy stamp sets that contain humorous sayings and/or images.   Then I remembered that I had just received a fun little set of stamps from my friend, Lisa, that she had designed for A Jillian Vance Design.  The set is called "Doodle Birthday".


The card took me less than 10 minutes to create and I used bits and pieces that I had laying out on the kitchen counter: some fun chevron printed paper, cardstock and black ink.  I stamped the boxer shorts image on the patterned paper and trimmed it out.  A piece of PTI's rustic white cardstock was trimmed to fit the card base (PTI's Lemon Tart) and then I stamped the sentiment "birthdays are like...".  The boxer shorts were adhered underneath that using foam dimensionals, then the second sentiment was stamped below that and I was done.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  PTI cardstock; A Jillian Vance Design stamps; Memento Ink; Patterned paper:  Echo Park (I think!)
