Hello friends, and happy Wednesday! WOW, what happened to those first 3 months of the year already? For me, they seemed to just whiz on by, although there were some days and weeks that felt never-ending! LOL! Anyway, it's Wednesday, which means it's Humor Me Wednesday at Bugaboo's Catch the Bug blog. Here is what I created for Little Red Wagon Day, which happens to be today!

HUMOR ME WEDNESDAY -- MARCH 31, 2021 -- AND MY 50TH BIRTHDAY! :)
For my card, I chose to use this adorable Brat - Girl and Kitty Wagon image; how could I not? They look like they have been having lots of fun in their red wagon, don't they? I was inspired to keep this card layout pretty simple by one of the handmade birthday cards I was sent this month. I colored the image with alcohol markers to match the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Remix 6x6 patterned paper I had chosen. White gel pen highlights were also added. I found some red and blue cardstock in my massive stash of Recollections cardstock that matched pretty well, and used a Martha Stewart border punch to create the edges on the blue that borders the patterned paper strip. I cut the Tim Holtz Celebration Words: Script "happy birthday" sentiment 3 times from the same blue cardstock, but it didn't stand out enough from the background, so I added a black offset shadow layer as well. You can't see it in the picture, but I added clear Wink of Stella to the words. Here's a close up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Today is my 50th birthday, and I can hardly believe it! I never imagined what my life would be like at this age, but it turned out to be pretty darn good. Hubby took me to Texas Roadhouse for dinner on Sunday, and this evening we will celebrate with some ice cream cake. Doesn't get much better than that!
Anyway, until next time,
Stay Healthy, Take Care, and God Bless!
