How Old???

You're How Old?If you've read my blog for any length of time, you know that I like pretty cards with very tongue in cheek sayings on the inside. This time, I went for a slightly different angle. I laid it all out right on the front of the card. These silly little “no evil” frogs caught my attention as soon as Dustin put them up for the March Membership. Why most No Evils keep their tongues in their mouth, mine come right out and say what they're thinking. They are shocked and amazed at the age of the card recipient. There are times when, of course, we should speak no evil and other times when we should let it all hang out and just tell it like it is.

For this card, I combined and reduced the three frogs so that they would fit comfortably on what turned out to be a 6” x 4” card. This won't fit a standard envelope, which is fine for me. I prefer to tuck my cards into the ribbon on a package or basket of goodies rather than hiding behind an envelope. If you want something more standard, you'll want to keep in mind the finished card size when you group the images and text.

So now it's up to you to tell it like it is, either nicely or with a bit of sass. Hop over to Dustin's blog and join in the Birthday Card challenge! It's his blogaversary month, so check his site regularly for fun new releases and exciting things this month.

Project SuppliesSupplies this time once again came straight from my stash. I've come to the realization that I have too much stuff and it's time to use some of it up rather than buying new. The striped patterned paper is from a DCWV fall stack. The glitter and ribbon, courtesy of Really Reasonable Ribbon, add a bit of pretty to an otherwise sassy card. The image and scalloped mat were cut with Spellbinders Long Rectangles/Scalloped Long Rectangles Nestabilities dies.
