I "UN" Did It!


The Crafters of Faith group that I belong to was given an "UN Birthday" mini challenge this week.  Our wonderful leader, Kelly, is the brain child of this challenge. The idea is to make a birthday card, that doesn't make you think "Birthday" when you look at it.  This is what I came up with.  The card is actually for my oldest son's birthday in April.  He is a big fan of Abbott and Costello and I thought this image worked for that.  It is a freebie from Free Vintage Digital Stamps.  The circle that the image is on is actually on the inside of the card on pop dots so that it stands out when the card is closed. Cardstock is from an unknown source on an unknown planet......I've had it for YEARS and it came in an assorted pack that I purchased at a store that sells liquidated kinds of things.  Brads are from JoAnn's and the sentiment is computer generated.  The picture doesn't really allow you to see it, it says I say Old Man, "Whose On First".  This is sure to get a chuckle from my son, as he loves that Abbott and Costello skit.

Thank you for stopping by today!  Be sure and check the other gals creations, they will be posting throughout the weekend. You can find links to all their awesome sites on the sidebar. Have a most glorious weekend!!
