29 again?

Guess what I needed to do???
Yep! Make a funny card for one of my friends who is having a birthday!
I think this image by Greeting Farm has the perfect expression on her face for this sentiment!

Monday, as she is called, was stamped in Black Archival Ink on Tim Holtz watercolor paper. I colored her with Distress Markers and a water brush. Love how you can use the Distress markers as watercolors!I wanted to keep this card very simple and to the point, so I used the current sketch at

Hope this card brought a smile to your face! It sure was fun giving it to my friend!
She didn't mind the sentiment!
