It just stinks!

Hello all you fellow crafters!

What a week.  It is so rainy and dark here in Salt Lake City and I am just not a fan, it just stinks... I really love the Spring and the sunshine.  My skin could use some good Vitamin D.  ha ha!  Maybe I should go on a vacation to a sunny beach or something. (wouldn't that be nice?)  I think I may just glow in the dark with how white and pasty I am!

I must also admit that I seriously love my Cameo.  I wanted to cut some Paper Trey Ink paper for this card, which is a little thicker, and Cam cut it perfectly!  I could not be happier!  Such clean lines and perfect little circles and cuts; I am just so in love!

As I mentioned a couple posts ago there are quite a lot of Birthdays coming up in the family including our parents who are getting older.  I really wanted to think of some funny/cute card ideas for them.  I successfully did one and I love how it turned out.  My husband really loves this card too and I think he really wants to give it to his Mom who he lovingly calls "old doll."  ha ha! (I hope she doesn't read this because it should be a surprise but I can't wait to post it)

Gettin' Old Stinks

I could not get over how cute this little skunk was.
You can find the SVG set at Lettering Delights, here.

The flowers are from the same SVG set and the little flag was part of some tags I bought at the Silhouette online store.  I used the print and cut feature for the cute little sentiment.

The shaped card was made with a tag I bought on Silhouette online store and I just welded them together.

Gettin' Old Stinks, but I am pretty sure that no matter the age Birthday's with a good card is always worth it!

I giggled when I say this fabulous card Blythe and the sentiment really fits. I also loved your balloon card - seriously gorgeous! Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog.
