Monstrously Old!

monstrously-old This was supposed to be posted for Day 6 of the IHP Birthday Bash Challenge, and clearly it wasn’t. But it’s not too late for you – you have until midnight tonight if you want to enter.

This challenge was to make a special birthday card. Well, IMHO, all my birthday cards are special! But what makes this one special, besides the fact that these adorable stamps were designed by the lovely and talented Jannie Ho, is that ALL of the men in my family with birthdays this month — 3 men in 3 different generations — got the same card. No, I am not ashamed – it’s too cute! (Paul, if you didn’t get your card yet, I guess the surprise factor is blown – sorry!)

I used Silly Monsters by Chicken Girl Design (available only through i {heart} papers). The patterned paper is from the Eerie 6x6 pad by Basic Grey. The monsters are colored with Copic markers, and the eyes have dots of Ranger Glossy Accents on them to make them stand out.

Well, I gonna finish off my weekend with some good TV tonight, and then it’s back to the grind tomorrow. But if you read this far in the post, I’ll let you in on a little secret. My birthday is coming up this week, and I’ll be giving away some blog candy – so stay tuned!
