Stamp Out Swine Flu!

Today's silly card is for Joan's INK-A-PALOOZA "Time for a Laugh" challenge at The Stamp Shack. She asked us to take any stamped image and create a card that would make you SMILE!

I selected my "Blue Alien" stamp by Stampabilities with the intention of making a funny birthday card with a saying like... "I hope your birthday is out of this world" or something along those lines. As I was coloring the image with my Copic markers, I thought of this sentiment. There has been SO much press about the swine flu this week and I hope and pray it isn't as serious as they're making it out to be!

Do you like this bright geometric designer paper? I found it today at The Red Apple Scrapbook Store in Columbus, NE. It is Kaiser Scrapbook paper ~ made in Australia. I've never heard of it before, have you?

We had such a beautiful day today and I'm hoping for more weather like this tomorrow. I do believe that SPRING has finally sprung! YaY!!!

Enjoy your weekend and do what makes you SMILE! :)

Quote for Today ~

There comes a time in life when you have to let go of all the pointless drama and the people who create it and surround yourself with people who make you laugh so hard you forget the bad and focus solely on the good . After all, life is too short to be anything but happy.
