Seize the Birthday and Make Us Laugh!


Welcome to another Seize the Birthday Thursday! And to the last day in February. Unless you're in Australia or similar... how is March treating you?


I had the honour of picking the optional topping challenge for you today, and my choice is "Make Us Laugh". Sometimes a good chuckle is needed when it's birthday time! Since it was my idea, I did my best to bring my sense of humour to my card: 


It's hard to go wrong with any of the Tim Holtz Crazy line of stamps if you hope to inspire a chuckle, and I thought this guy's expression worked well with the sentiment. For once, I waited until after picking my background paper before colouring his collar, so everything goes together. I couldn't resist stamping the caution tape at the top and bottom for a little extra humour.


The rest of the team's cards are sure to make you smile, too! We also get to enjoy one last  card by our surprise party guest, Julie, before her limo arrives to take her home. Check out the rest of the creations, be inspired, and join us! 

Supplies: Neenah white & Stamping' Up basic black cardstock, American Crafts Hip Hip Hooray patterned paper, Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Mini Crazy Cats & Dogs, Papertrey Ink Caution: Another Year Older & Crackerbox Palace Immature Forever stamps, MFT extreme black, Versafine onyx black & Catherine Pooler tiara inks, Wow clear embossing powder, Copic markers, foam tape
