Great American Grump Out

Sorry for such a late post. Apparantly cough syrup before bed and setting an alarm clock for work don't go hand in hand. Needless to say I was 2 hours late today. I made this card for a monthly swap group that I am in on SCS called the Sisterhood of the Traveling Cards. Each month there is a different hostess and theme. This month's theme was to make a card around a lesser known Holiday or celebration. My word there was some really good ones like "Talk like a pirate day". How fun. I finally decided to pick something that was around my daughter's birthday in May. Did you know that there was such a thing as the Great American Grump Out? When I saw that I immediately thought of Sfen from the Doodle Factory at Starving Artist. Then I decided to pair him with some cheerful Sassafrass Lass DP. The sentiment is computer generated and uses the ACME font from 1001freefonts. The layout was inspired from the Nov/Dec 2009 Paper Crafts Magazine on page 22. The only thing I did different was the keep the right hand side straight instead of decorative. If this card doesn't make you smile and get your grump out then I don't know what will. LOL. Thanks for visiting me today and don't forget to make a comment for my blogaversary candy listed in my right hand side bar for your chance to win.
