My dad's birthday was on March 1, and he likes to make a big deal about it. I wanted to make a card that would make him laugh, so this is what I came up with.

My dad's favorite holiday is Halloween, and his favorite character is Frankenstein, so I knew he would love this. It also gave me a chance to use my new Happy Hauntings cartridge. I've been eyeing it for a while, and finally snagged it on eBay. I thought I would have to wait until the fall to use it, but I found a way to use it sooner.

The gift bag, party hat and thought bubbles are from Create a Critter. I also added glitter glue for some sparkle, and the cuts are on foam tape for dimension.

Inside the card:

  1. Well, since you visited my blog I thought I'd come check out yours. I saw your card on MIM. It's great that this will be a card that your Dad cherishes because not only did you make it, you really but some thought into it. Not to mention haunting ebay for the haunting cartridge. Ha Ha! Pun intended.

  2. Great card, I bet your Dad loves it!
