Bah Humbug!

     My brother-in-law is one funny guy.  He has an awesome sense of humor, although sometimes his jokes are lame. But, he always makes me laugh.   For years, I have been sending him Bah Humbug cards.  I don't remember why I started to do this.  Probably it was a result of one of his jokes.

    A couple of years ago, I found this stamp at the annual stamp exchange hosted by my local stamping store. I always incorporate it into my card somehow. 

  This is my Bah Humbug card for 2011. 

     You can se it is very non-traditional. I stamped the lamb,ran the top through the cuttlebug with the swiss dots folder. then I colored it using my copics. I used Frosted Lace Stickles to give the lamb some texture. I couldn't quite make up my mind how to do the "baa".  So I put the card down for a day.  While reading one of the threads in PTI's forum, it occurred to me that a tiny tag would be perfect.

     I especially like the inside sentiment which is stamped on Spring Rain.  I don't know why why camera insisted it was gray.

     Thanks for looking.

I thought this was a baby card at first glance... that lamb is adorable. The inside sentiment and image are so funny. I like the idea that you use this character on every Christmas card you make for your brotherin-law ..... he must look forward to it every year!!
