Great Cards Create Grins!

I love having wonderfully special cards in my card stash.  My friend Susan told me she keeps a collection of all the cards I send to her in a little "Min Portfolio Basket".  LOL
I have a habit of keeping all kinds of cards too - it's special to me to know people think enough to send a card to me.  I can imagine myself when I'm 100 years old, my hubby and kids will have to dig me out from under a mountain of cards.

I don't know about you, but it's so nice to know the cards you create are special to people.
Since my dad was diagnosed with his cancer, I try to send at least one funny card a week, or drop one off in his hospital room, or leave one at the house for him to find. Funny cards are always the best.
He has kept EVERY ONE of those cards.  Not because they're cards from his fabulously talented daughter and son-in law, but because it is a reminder that he is in our thoughts.

So, what's funnier than Bugaboo's Gus in a Speedo to remind someone they're in your thoughts??
The New Gus Birthday Set that Jodie released last week!
I'll ask now what's funnier than an Old Fart in his underwear and bathrobe with his pink bunny slippers, but I'm sure not too far down the road, Jodie with come up with another Gus or Stella image that will surpass this level of FUNNY!
But for now, THIS IS FUNNY!!!
Image - Bugaboo - "Gus Birthday" Set
Paper - Coredinations (White Washed & Core Couture), Black Cardstock and Doodlebug Design Dots & Stripes
Extra STUFF - MS Punch, My New Find - Plastic Colored 'String', Yellow Square Brads and Dimensionals.

And a few challenges this 'OLD FART' is entered into -
The Paper Players - Recipe (One Designer Series Paper, something punched & sentiment)

Be sure to mosey on back tomorrow morning and check out the Friday Freebie for this week! 
You'll definitely Love It!!
As always, thanks so much for bopping by today!
Happy Hauntin' n' Craftin' Too!


  1. So cute Min!! AZ was wonderful. Temps were in the 70's - nice and comfortable. We did not do much but hang out and that was perfect! Walked both nights up a huge hill to take sunset photos and the sky was cloudy. But, I did get a few good shots.

  2. LOL!!! Oh this is just the BEST card!!! I must get that image! Great Card, Min!

  3. Min-Min, you are cracking me up!!! You did Gus proud, but he looks like he needs a trio of blondes with that bathrobe and pipe. .. ;) MWAH!


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my little sliver of Paradise.
I love reading your comments!!!
Hugs & Happy Days! ~Min
