Humorous birthday card

I made this card after visiting all the stops on the OWH Make 'Em Laugh blog hop.  About 15 companies have partnered with OWH to put on the blog hop and many of them were offering prizes to people who created cards and linked them up using Inlinkz. 

Caro mentioned recently that she needed birthday cards and thank you cards, so I made one of each from the hop.  This sentiment is one of my favorite stamps.  I love all the Inkadinkado kid quotes!  The character (bear?  groundhog?  hamster?) is by Inkadinkado also.

The blue and green papers are from a pack I bought at Michael's yesterday.  I didn't need more paper, but they were having a good sale!  The pack of 25 sheets (8.5 x 11) cost just $2 and the weight of the paper is so thick - 281 grams per square meter.  It's gently textured and just wonderful.  Right now, it comes in a pack with yellow, red, blue, purple, and lime.  Oddly, you get more of some colors than others.  But it's great paper and I hope they make other packs in the future. 

If you have some time, scroll down to read the other two posts I made today.  I'm offering a set of free digis in one.  :)

  1. Kathryn - your card made me giggle! It is so cute and the sentiment is adorable. I like the wiggle eyes on the critter. :) I know what you mean about paper .... I do not NEED anymore, but who can pass up a good deal on something you haven't tried yet.

  2. This is really cute and SO TRUE! ;) The colors really pop and your critter is adorable. Great design too! (I hit the paper aisle at Michael's yesterday too! Stocked up lots of stuff I didn't know I needed!)
