My son-in-law, John, is so witty and hilarious....he never fails to make everyone laugh.
So he is definitely worthy of receiving an "embellished" joke card for his birthday :)
I was looking for a typical 'son-in-law' birthday card and then THERE SHE WAS....a little Calico BEAUTY that resembles their cat, Marcy! Disappointment set in because the card is for a TWO YEAR OLD GIRL! But luckily I was "SAVED" by being a scrapbooker and my mind went into automatic click-click creative mode! LOL!
So, let's start from the beginning shall we....
When I started scrapbooking years ago, I loaded up on every sticker that I thought was cute because I was scrapping my daughter's life. I still have most (if not all) of my old stash, so low and behold I find these puff alpha stickers in my stash and the "B" is exactly the same striped colors just like the '2' on the card!!!! So......
I cut the 'B' into a '3' - LOL!
Now - check out their cat, Marcy! Green eyes and all!
The best surprise for John is what I did to the inside of the card!
The entire left side is decorated with stickers & rub-ons!
I had to stop several times and laugh until I cried! Look at the puff sticker of the skeleton fish jumping into the fish bowl! And the rub-on bird saying 'here, kitty kitty' - LOL!!!
Funniest of all is the puff sticker of the gray cat because their other cat, Harvey, is gray. They sometimes call him "Buttstein" when his rear end stinks - LOL!
The right side as you can see is marked through and wording changed a bit.
Rub-on paw prints, a 'meow' sticker and the #3 glittered with Stickles "Spiced Marmalade" added a little fun.
The real 'kicker' though is the awkward fire hydrant rub-on in the corner - LOL!!!!!!!!!
This is something John would pull in a joke because it doesn't fit at all with cats! LOL!!
The poem on this card is hilarious! I keep laughing myself into "lung hurt". LOL!!!
I created this post on July 13th and have just been dying to publish it!! But, now I'm able to because John received his card and he & Brianne had a good laugh. :)
Hope you got some laughs because I know that I sure did!
Happy 32nd Birthday (July 31st) to our wonderful son-in-law!
