Pun Fun: Happy Bird-Day!


Happy Sunday! I can't believe we are flying right into July now!


Here's a Stampin' Up! birthday card for a special friend that went out a little late, unfortunately! Hopefully she will forgive me! This Pun Fun image was perfect for her, but I don't have this set. So luckily my friend Lori had stamped some images for me a looonng time ago and I had saved them. See, sometimes it pays to save everything!


I used the new Melon Mambo In Color, paired with some new Tall Tales and Razzleberry Lemonade papers and some Certainly Celery accents. The inspiration for the card came from a card on page 60 of the new catalog.


Hope you had a great weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Angie, This is SO CUTE! What a fabulous card. You should enter it in Shelli's contest for this month - which is birthday cards!

I love the colors and layout you used. It's fantastic!

Hey, look at that - we both pulled out Pun Fun this weekend!

I really like how you did the ribbon - what an original way to add it to your card!!

I made a birthday card to my cousin from B.C. with this bird and she thought the sentiment was hilarious because apparently, that's exactly how we (the French family members) sound like when we say "happy bird-day" out loud! hahahaha! Hadn't thought of it before, but I guess she has a point...

Have a good weekend!
Cindy
