Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--Grad or Dad Let's Celebrate

I was so excited for this Sassy Cheryl's Challenge, chosen by my best bud Peggy.  I needed a Birthday card for my husband in a couple of weeks and I have always loved this Sassy Cheryl's image, called Crazy Father's Day,  so I just had to use it for his card....Perfect don't you think:

This is just the most fun image for any guy to get for his birthday because when you are old enough to get this card you want something this fun :)  I had so much fun coloring it with copic markers and added the most fun colors I could imagine and tried to make him happy without looking drunk :).  Gotta find out from Cheryl what his name is so I can send you to the link to buy this fun guy.   I think we all have someone to send this card to LOL.

A couple of things about my card, pretty standard except the label at the top.  Watched a video of Tim Holtz the other night and he made a label using a label maker and regular card stock cut into a 3/8 in strip and ran it through the label maker.  let me tell you, it is easier than it sounds. Just open the top and feed it in, click it until you can see it out the bottom, close it, and start making your band.  Hey, if I can figure it out the first time, you all can do it. LOL :)  And because I am a retardimus, I misspelled Birthday and had to add the Star to have the A in Birthdy , LOL .... Did you see that before I pointed it out?....you did not!!!!!
Be sure to check out the rest of the DT cards and see what Grads and Dads creations they have for you,,... I think you all might have been a little intimidated by the sketch challenge last week but and are getting busy with kids home for the summer...
 Check out the Store too to see what Sassy Cheryl has created for this week because I am sure she has... I think I heard something about an expensive car and fur in hinting about a new image....strange....what could it be LOL.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wondeful creative day.

Now you see, not one person would have even spotted the no A in Birthday. but I think it is genious to use the star tip for the A..way to go!
I agree that this is such a humerous image and could be used for any occasion.. what fun.
I love the idea of the label maker and using paper strips in it.. thanks for the idea.. I have always wanted a label maker.. and using the paper makes it so versatile! Awesome.
Your card is so total fun!
hugs to ya
