You look like a monkey, and you act like one too!

Admit it, you all sing the line at the end of the "alternate" version of Happy Birthday.....
Well, here we have another Birthday card using those fab Imaginisce papers - I know, you all are very bored of them I'm sure, but hey, sticking to the same colors/papers for a few cards in a row is good for the productivity - I don't often do this since I get bored, but it can make things a little faster.

For today's card, I used the sketch from The Sweet Stop - I had a bit of trouble with the vertical line at first, but I think it came together okay. I do still love these colors, especially for Birthday cards! I even used my new nestabilities and some much neglected Bella Bling!

I managed to get a couple more cards done this evening, so I should have lots to share this week!
Happy Friday Night! And yes, it is still very cold here....
Nighty night,

Shanna :)

p.s. If anyone would like to play "Play it Forward" with me, see this post - I will send you a homemade/handmade goodie if you choose to play along.

  4. Lovin this! A while back I was looking for a birthday card for a friend. I had zero luck finding what I was looking for. I told a group of friends about this problem one night while we were having a few drinks. We proceeded to get smashed and make up a bunch of greeting cards we found funny. I had been writing down the cards we made up and the next morning I read them. Much to my surprise the cards were still funny even when sober.

  5. Oooooh fab card! Love the image and the nesties are lovely, haven't seen those before but MUST NOT BUY! The papers are lovely, well done you for being productive!
    Strangely enough, now you mention it my ears were burning the other night..........!
