Aidan's birthday card

This is the birthday card that I created for my nephew, Aidan, for his 14th birthday. He was very disappointed when I told him that the ticket was only a decoration! He liked the card so much that he said he wanted to keep it!

The stamps are from Cornish Heritage Farms, Purple Onion Designs, TooMuchFun Rubberstamps, and Stampin' Up.

ATC swap

I made this card for an ATC swap called "Make Me Laugh". I am never sure if my work is up to par but I received a few comments that mine made people laugh the most. Excellent!

My cards tend to have some kind of movement and this one is no exception. The pumpkin head is hinged so that when you lift it up to the side, you see a photo of me! (I think that is why everyone laughed - so true!)

The pumpkinhead stamp is by Starving Artistamps and the saying by TooMuchFun Rubberstamps. For cardstock I used Stampin' Up basic black, whisper white and the designer paper is from Old World Stack. I also used Stampin' Up's spiral punch and added some fibers to a homemade tag.

I received some really funny ones in return and I thank everyone who participated with a special thanks to Diane for coordinating this swap!
