Grumpy Birthday

I thought it was probably high time for maybe not a Funny Friday - but at least a Fun Friday!  It's been a while since I've done one of those.  In fact, it's been a while since I did anything! 

After seeing Marilyn over at One Stamping Fool and several other wonderful artists make such cute cards with this stamp set from Taylored Expressions, I knew I had to have it!  The design is from a sketch I saw not long ago and thought it would be perfect to showcase the grumpy, but fun, cat.

Good Golly!  I just realized this card would slide right into the challenge over at Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets).  It's a fun challenge and one I haven't played in lately.  Hate to take such a grump over there but still a fun challenge. Maybe it'll even put a smile on his face being with such a happy group of ladies.

Thanks for stopping by........and have a great weekend.

Lynn

I adore this grumpy cat, Lynn, and he definitely brought as smile to my face. Great paper choices and a perfect touch of coloring. Love the sentiment but if I was that grumpy, it would have to read a much higher number, like "59 again?" :-D

I love his expression, as a lot of cats I know give that same expression. lol He has got to be the cutest grumpy cat I've ever seen. I hope he likes it over at the playground!
