A 70th B'day and a Basket of Chicks!

Warm Biscuit Bedding was the web site Stef showed us for the Split Coast Inspiration Challenge this week. I found this cute robot material and it reminded me of the Cosmo Cricket Cogsmo paper I had.I needed a card for a 70th b'day party I was going to Saturday and thought this fun paper would help soften the blow of the old geezer and big number on the card!! LOL!!!

I used this weeks Taylored Expressions Sketch for my card.
The fun stamps are by Gina K - inside I stamped 4 sentiments from the set: "everything hurts - and what doesn't hurt doesn't work", "your birthday cake looks like baked alaska", your driver's license picture looks better than you do", your ears are hairier than your head'.
Hopefully Roger is still speaking to me after he opens his card!!!

Stamps: Gina K - Tickle your funny bone - You know You're old when...
Paper: vintage cream, ocean tides - PTI, DP Cosmo Cricket Cogsmo Mr. Roboto
Ink: Menento Tuxedo Black, So Saffron - SU, Ocean Tides - PTI
Accessories: Copics, sponge, star punch, circle punch, gems - Amuse, scallope edge punch - SU, foam dinemsionals
My second card today was made for the Featured Stamper challenge on Split Coast we got to check out Kristen's gallery (mommylvs2stamp).
I finally chose this peek a boo card to CASE - as I really liked her layout. I changed the stamps used, the colors and I left off the bow and brads.

My cute little chickie basket and sentiment are from Rubbernecker Stamps I paperpieced the bow and stamped the little chick again, cut them out and popped them up for a little dimension. I colored the image with Copics.

The sentiment is cut with a Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio 2 but I cut off the ribbon loops on the ends so it would just be an oval shape. I sponged it before taking it out of the die. This card is a biggy at 5.5"x5.5"
