Gingersnaps and Macabre Monday!

Stampotique is sponsoring the Gingersnaps this whole month and I totally love that blog so I was excited to play along.  This Weds (1-18) is a "random" challenge to use your favorite paper.  Fav paper?...wow...mine changes A L O T... :)  Decided I am liking the "Authentique Free bird pad" right now. AND  I have a very "old" girlfriend (he he he..she is my age) who is celebrating her birthday.  Growing up "Paula" celebrated her birthday before mine...I was always jealous...times have changed! lol
Love this little guy "smile" from Stampotique...you can use him soooo much! lol  He is colored with copics and sewn around a bit.  I wanted this to look a bit like a collage.. the stamp on the side is one from the antique mall...lets see...Kennedy..1963..yep, I think I met my best childhood buddy right around then...   I also want to enter "smile" in the challenge over at "catered crop  button up" challenge ..use a button on your card....    NEXT ...Stampotique is ALSO sponsoring the "Macabre Monday challenge at the Haunted design house...I HAD to join in there too ! Fun and different! The challenge is called "chic freaks" lol   WELLLLL.....this chick freak is married to guy freak..............
 Ummmmm...yea....they been married a while I guess! :)  Please say hello to the happy couple :)lol
In case you didnt know..these two are drawn by the artist Daniel Torrente over at Stampotique
