Springy Thingies - Seize The Birthday

It's Thursday and that means it's time for another challenge over at Seize the Birthday!  We want to see your birthday cards for the boys/men this week - using the same sketch as we did last week.  We're again sponsored by The Alley Way Stamps - and they will be providing a wonderful prize for the winner!!!  Be sure and check out our blog for all the details


This cute little monster and sentiment are from The Alley Way Stamps set called Monster Mash!  Isn't he a little doll!  Those springy thingies came out of a couple of ball point pens we had here.  I really had to search high and lo to find two pens in this house that used those springs.  It was probably time to clean out all the pencil/pen holders around here anyway!  





Thanks for stopping by ............ and be sure and check out the Seize the Birthday Challenge and enter for your chance to win!

Oh, what a fun card, Lynn! Love the 'antenna' on that little one-eyed monster. Too funny! I'll definitely be playing along this week. I need several more masculine cards in my birthday stash since I have lots of guys in the family and both April and June are heavy with birthdays.

Love those springs, Lynn, such a fun card and he doesn't look monstrous at all. The stripey paper looks so bright and cheerful.

Love,
Monica

Fabulous and fun card! I had a really hard time finding those pen springs around here too and they are perfect antenas for you little monster. Do they even make those type of ball point pens anymore?

Love your little orange monster's antenna. Some lil' boy is going to enjoy playing with those springy thingys. Your design papers are so perfect with this cheery little card. Snow has stopped, melted on the deck, still a bit of white in the yard. It was fun to see it, now that's it for the year I hope! It's really not that cold, so I was so surprised to see the flakes falling down. Have a great wkend, and TFS

Sorry I'm late with my comments Lynn, but this little has still has me laughing. Wonderful idea using the springs from a pen. Love his eye. Just as cute as can be and every guy I know would get a big kick out of this one.

OK... Now I'm wishing I had saved those springs from all of the pens I have tossed in the past...

You did an amazing job with the sketch and your monster is so sweet!
