Humor Me Wednesday at Catch the Bug

Hi, everyone!
We all know about holidays through the year such as Valentine's Day, Easter, July 4th and Christmas, but what about those oft-forgotten, completely crazy head-scratcher holidays that are rarely heard of, and often laughable?! Catch the Bug we will be highlighting some of the whacky holidays each week with some great projects and cards to depict them! We're calling it
Humor Me Wednesday!
We hope you will join us in the fun each week: take a peek at some of the different days by visiting the talented DT members for Bugaboo Stamps for some inspiration. Most holidays are just belly-busters, while others are just plain fun! :0) We are choosing holidays from each week for the Humor Me Wednesday creations, so we aren't all covering the same one. We're hoping this offers you that much more inspiration and fun! :0)

For my card today, I chose to use the April 12 holiday: Big Wind. Some other more humorous holidays this week are happening on April 7  - No Housework Day (we all LOVE this one, right?!), April 8 - Draw a Bird Day; April 10 - National Sibling Day. 
I think the Big Wind Day could take on all kinds of funny meaning, but I did keep my perception of it Rated G, with no toilet humor. lol! There's nothing like a birthday card to make fun of someone's age, I say! Who better to help with that than the ever-grumpy Gus! lol!
This is the Gus Birthday - Golden Years image from Bugaboo Stamps. I kept him clean and simple, with only pice of DP on top of an embossed card base. I added a few mini pennant punched pieces, and a few rhinestones. The inside of this card reads, "to blow out all those candles this year, my friend! Happy Birthday!".

Humor Me Wednesday creations, as well as our other weekly goings-on. Please visit the other DT members blogs and leave them some love -  you will see some new faces over there, and we all love to know what you think of our efforts. :0)

  1. I love Gus and got a good laugh with your card. You have reminded me with this fun card to get out my banner punches...haha

  2. Too cute. YOur card has me smiling. Thanks so much for playing along with us over at CCCB!

  3. Too funny, Cheryl! Love dear Gus and that sentiment is just perfect.

  4. Thanks for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers for our humour challenge. Thanks also for bearing with us with the link moderating thing. Sadly it became necessary because of the large number of people who appeared to not have bothered to read our challenge requirements.

    Fabulous sentiment, but I wonder what that wind is for and where it will come from? Gus and Stella are always so amusing and perfect for our 'older' friends.

    Good luck!
