Funny Birthday Cards and a Challenge Entry

I have had the rare opportunity to spend almost the entire weekend in my crafting studio - Yay! This has resulted in 3 birthday cards, 1 graduate card and a page set for a mini-album I am working on. Normally I would not post so much stuff in one day but I want to put some of these in challenges soooo here are my first two cards.

This is a belated birthday card that I have been wanting to make ever since I saw this sentiment in one of my new CTMH acrylic stamp sets called Card Chatter-Birthday. The sentiment says "I didn't forget your birthday..." "I'm just extending the Celebration!" How cute is that, and imperative to have for a procrastinator like me - haha.

Card Materials:
Stamp: CTMH Card Chatter-Birthday
Paper: DCWV The Whimsy matstack
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa

CHALLENGE: Catch the Bug - warm colors and paper piecing.


My next card for this post is also one I have been wanting to make since I saw the sentiment. It is very simply stamped & colored and a little cuttlebug embossing, not alot of bells and whistles to take away from the sentiment. (Beware: my coloring is very amateur - sorry!)

Paper: scraps from my stash - Papertrey Ink and DCWV
Stamps: Gina K designs stamp set "Tickle Your Funny Bone"
Colored with Prisma color pencils and gamsol
Cuttlebug embossing was one of the border folders but I am not sure what the name is.

The first card is a "dear" and the second card is a "hoot". I'm like you in needing to catch up and/or get ahead of all the upcoming birthdays and events that need cards. Some one will enjoy receiving either card. Thank you for joining us at Catch the Bug this week.
