Whining About Your Age

Don't forget to enter for my blog-aversary candy HERE

Good morning to you all! Wow, is it hot here! High nineties with heat indexes 105 to 107 degrees! Someone sent me this picture yesterday, and it just says it all

If you've been to Squigglefly then you've seen the new releases and know how wonderful they are! I know I say that every week but every week it's true!

I have a super fast, but funny without being mean birthday card that is great for men and women! Really, it doesn't get much easier than this

(click to enlarge)

This uses one of the new images released today and I followed the Clean and Simple Stamping sketch for this. The image and the sentiment are all in one, so I simply printed it out on some Stampin' Up! designer paper and colored in the image with Copics. I attached some lace at the bottom of the panel and then tied a piece of torn fabric around it. That fabric goes with that card stock perfectly don't you think?

In the sketch, they have an embellishment or image toward the upper left, but I figured the image in my sentiment would count as that. I really like it because the humor is subtle and make people do a double take.

You really need to check out the store and see everything that's new, and be sure to check out the design team's blogs for some samples as well! Since it's such a hot day I am not planning on doing much. Hiding out in my craft room making cards. listening to a good book or some music, and sipping on some iced tea sounds like the ticket! I hope you have a great day and thanks for looking!
