Blue Bird Special

This first card I made for my brother's birthday.  I tried to make it masculine yet funny.  This image was a Dustin Pike freebie.  The inside says Happy Birthday, You Old Bird.  I don't have that stamp so I made my own rub-on with my printer and a transparency sheet.

The second card

I wanted to try out my new stamp.  I chose the colors from this rak'd paper that I had.  The corner sticker is from a sticker pack I got from Cass.  I did not have a sentiment stamp that would work with this Happy Hopper stamp, so I printed off a rub-on again.  I don't know where I found the directions for this but you have to print on the shiny side of the transparency, print at best quality and as a mirror image, then after you print it, let it dry, then place it down on the paper and rub with a popsicle stick.  I just loved this image cause of my job.
