One of the best things about stamping and blogging is the people you "meet" along the way. One of my blog friends is having a birthday, and while I've never met her in real life, I know we'd get along famously. I'm banking on the fact that she has a wonderful sense of humor online, that this is the case in person as well. Because she will need it when she gets this card.
I grabbed my funny Hambo Stamps to make her card and decided to check the challenge over at the Hambo Hoedown this week. It's "use 2 colors from the 5 Olympic rings in your creation." Great. Red and black will work with this goofy ladybug (2713) and funny age wisecrack (0512), I thought. Sadly, no. The papers that I chose just make it look vampire-ish and halloweeny. Sigh. Not the birthday creation I had in mind...lol! Win some, lose some, right?
Anyway, I didn't let the weirdness of it stop me, so I dotted that bug with some black Stickles and I'm mailing it anyhow!
Thanks for stopping by to check on me and my wacky card :) Have a good rest of the weekend!
