Birthday Crack

Hello! That is not the view I want to start my day with, but isn't it hilarious?! At least it isn't hairy and smelly ;-)

A co-worker asked me to come up with a funny 50th birthday card. I saw this image on the blog-o-sphere and had to make this card. I promise, I am not going to start posting a bunch of non-SU stuff, this is a one time deal. I just couldn't resist sharing this with all my friends. :) 
The Designer Label punch is hard at work again here, one on each side of the 2½" Circle punch for the main image. This is one unbelievably versatile punch! The shirt is water-colored in Tangerine Tango, the pants are layers of Marina Mist and Not Quite Navy. The Shoes are layers of  Crumb Cake and Soft Suede. The grey hair and the metal bits are Sahara Sand. The flesh tone is Blush Blossom, although Blushing Bride is very close to it and would be a good substitute.

Here is the inside with the punch line. I still laugh every time I see this! Yes, I laugh at farts too. What can I say.... I'm a nurse and farts are good! Wait until you have to have surgery and they won't let you leave until you have a good fart... you know I'm right. You know, you can die if you can't fart...or do the stuff that follows farts.... Oh boy! Did I ever get off topic here! Back to stamping, a much safer and better smelling topic!
  • Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes, non-SU plumber and wrench
  • Paper: Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango, Watercolor paper, Naturals Ivory
  • Ink: Jet Black Stazon, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand, Tangerine Tango, Marina Mist, Not Quite Navy, Cherry Cobbler, Blush Blossom
  • Other: Aqua-painter, Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelets, Crop-A-Dile, Stampin' Dimensionals, 2½" Circle punch, Designer Label punch, Large Oval punch, Small Oval punch, Distressing tool on Cutter Kit, Signo white gel pen

Now, don't you think you need that Designer Label punch, AND the Aqua-painters?! I know I am sure glad I have them, they have been used on almost every project I have done lately :)

Tanya, I think most of us have some non-SU stuff around, and I think it's okay to use it sometimes.... especially at a time like this! LOVE this; it really did make me LOL!

This is a great card! Love all the doodling you did around it, and the wrench is a perfect compliment!
