tangled enthusiasm!, US blog and a funny b-day card to share

(*for some reason my blog is not letting me link today - see side bars for links ...   Let your heart be "light"!  Using the new sketch from the Unscripted Sketches blog I made my card with "tangled enthusiasm" from Stampotique.
Is he hilarious or what?  He is colored with copic markers on a piece of stamped cs.  I used a very small tag punch for the "outlet" on the wall and punched 2 holes in it.  Where did those tiny weird ornaments come from you ask??...the new mini Christmas ornament cube also at Stampotique.  I did stamp them on another piece of paper and very carefully cut them out since I wasnt sure where I would be placing them.  Sentiment is from a sentiment sticker sheet. 
challenge: "raise the bar blog" = anything goes...
Changing holidays for a moment...allow me to show you a quick pic of a birthday card I made for my son-in-law..his birthday falls on Halloween so I try to make something funny for him.....forgive the lousy pic tho..
I got an old school pic of his and cut the head out..(that sounds bad..) then placed it on top of "lovelyarethesound" #6147 Stampotique that I had stamped on top of some ink sprayed and stenciled paper.  I also printed and cut out the heads of a couple of my kids and a skeleton then hung them on top!  My dd who is his wife is seen as the bunny face below.  I used Halloween cube pumpkins and sun design too.  I think he liked it even tho I actually FORGOT to bring the cake  :(  Yep, left it in the freezer at home...bwahhhhhh!  He is coming for dinner Sunday so we will celebrate again! Thanks for looking and commenting :)

You remind me of me.. When I have company over for dinner I almost always forget the dessert. Then the hubby and I are eating cake or pie or whatever for a week. Hee Hee... Love your cards my friend.

Hugs!
