You. Are. Old.

**This is my second post of the day.  For my Play Date Cafe/CASE Study card please scroll down or click here!**

I love this super cheeky sentiment stamp from Unity's February Kit of the Month.  I paired it with the car images from the same set and a background stamp from Skipping Stones Design's Grunge collection.  I used the colours from Just Add Ink and the sketch from the new Retro Sketches challenge.  I am also going to add this to the Cure for the Winter Blues challenge over at the Moxie Fab World.  Can't go wrong with a little giggle for curing the blues huh?  :)

Love the sentiment, very funny! I'm sure a guy would appreciate the humour. Love the background stamp and cars too. A great way to use our challenge colours. Thanks for playing with us at JAI this week.

I love that grungy background :) and the stitching is perfect! How is it that punctuating every word makes this so much funnier? lol

The sentiment cracks me up! Love it Jen!

A great card using our colour challenge for this week. Although you might have to choose carefully who you give it to with that sentiment...they would need a sense of humour! Thanks for joining in at Just Add Ink this week.

Nope, can't go wrong with a giggle to cure the blues. Although in Bermuda, your winter blues are probably a little different. ;) I LOVE how you used the cars...great masculine card. The bg is super fab!
