Still Lookin' Hot! - Happy Birdday

Hello friends!  Sometimes being a DT member on the two challenge blogs can be a bit dangerous for me. Why, you might ask? Well...there have been a few times that I have seen products such as digital images, stamps and papers that participants are using for challenges and then I think that I just must have them too. Definitely fun - but could be dangerous for my pocketbook if I'm not careful.  The digital image and sentiment on today's card is an example of just such an occasion.  I recently saw it used by several people and fell in love with it - so I went out and grabbed it for myself and decided that I should then enter the monthly challenge with it :o)  Great idea - right?   Take a look at what I made please:
I love the look on this bird's face - too funny!  It could be used for a man or woman really.  
But I decided I wanted to take a masculine approach to it this time.  
I might give it to my husband in April (don't worry he never reads my blog - lol), although he recently told me that he really prefers the cards I make that are "simple" (translated to card making language to Clean and Simple  "CAS").  Still he has a great sense of humor so I think he might really like this card anyway. 

I am entering my card in the following challenges that helped me make this card:
From the Heart - February Stamp of the Month Challenge (Birthday Candle Birdbrain) - where I'm also throwing my hat in the ring to be a guest designer (please wish me luck).

Color Throwdown Challenge #280 - the colors were perfect to make it a masculine card.  Congrats, by the way to my blog buddie Nicole for being a guest designer for this challenge!

Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Humor (the little "whoo hoo" is stamped and cut out with a die cut).
Papertake Weekly - Lovely Layers
Seize the Birthday - I didn't choose the topping option this time. 

So that's all for now. Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me today I'm sure glad that you did. Til next time...hugs and happy crafting! D
