Ha ha! Stampotique Challenge time

Mink by Daniel Torrente
Daisy Daisy by Jo Capper-Sandon
Sentiment by Carol's Collection
Dylusions inks in Bubblegum and Sunshine

Well, its that time again, yes, time for another Stampotique Designers challenge, and this time we have been challenged by Vikki. Here's what Vikki has to say:

So here's the challenge: create a humorous Birthday Greeting! Something funny, sarcastic........perhaps an image that will evoke a giggle or a good belly laugh, which I particularly enjoy! 

It just so happens to be Vikki's birthday today, so happy birthday Vikki!

I used two of the fab new colours by Dylusions (sunshine and Bubblegum) to create my background, and then stamped and coloured Mink with Distress inks. I chose Mink because she looks a bit fed up, like she doesn't WANT another birthday LOL! I added Daisy Daisy hanging upside down (this is such a useful filler stamp) and coloured with Sharpie poster paint pens:


I generated the text on my computer (as usual, having a dig at people's age as they get older!!) before adding my favourite funny sentiment from Carols Collection at Stampotique.


As its the second challenge of the month it's Stampotique stamps only please, and don't forget, as always there is a $30 gift certificate for one lucky person. Have a look at the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog here. Come and join the fun  and join our challenge with something funny!

And just before I go .... just to let you know I haven't been 100% recently .. I'm off work and just taking it easy trying to get sorted. My mojo has gone AWOL and I have been a little absent in blogland. Normal service will be resumed shortly, but in the meantime I am off for a nap zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Bye for now ........
