happy birthday to ewe!

Good morning!  Have you been playing along with Bugaboo's 4th Birthday celebration?  I sure hope so; there are some GREAT prizes up for grabs!  Wednesday is Humor Me Wednesday so we would like to see a funny birthday creation.

I thought this image was a hoot, so it was an easy choice for this challenge.  It's colored with pencils and I've done some simple layering and embellished with a twine-tied button.  This is attached to a simple, handmade birthday box with a surprise inside:

Moolah!  What young person doesn't appreciate some of that? (I will be saving this for my son's birthday.)  I printed a cute poem embellished with some DP corners for one side and for the other I rolled some bills, tied them with twine, and used just a touch of taperunner to hold them in place (they are easy to remove).  Voila'...card and gift all in one easy package!

Image: Bugaboo "Make it Snappy-Birthday Ewe" Digital Stamp 
Ink: Printer
Paper: G.P. 110, PTI Pure Poppy and Dark Chocolate, Doodlebug DP
Embellies: PTI Dark Chocolate Button/Pure Poppy Baker's Twine

I hope you will check out what the rest of the team has created to tickle your funny bone.
