You Old Bag!


My mom and I have a little tradition where we always give each other 2 cards on our birthdays - a nice card and a rude card.  This is the rude card that I gave mom this year.  :)





It totally cracked her up.  In fact, I think she liked it better than the nice card!  LOL!  I want to add it to Unity's Friends With Flair blog hop.  If you've never hopped along with it you should - there's always a ton of inspiration!

I also wanted to share these pictures of Atticus being thoroughly spoiled by his daddy!




That would be Haagen Dazs Dulce du Leche that he's slurping up and that container was spotless when he was done with it!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Crumb Cake) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Bag & sentimnet from July '12 KOM - Ol' Bag of Fun) Unity Stamp Co, (Bit of Burlap) Market Street Stamps
Inks:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko, (Early Espresso) Stampin' Up
Die:  (Double Ended Banner, Tag Sale #5) Papertrey Ink
Gems:  Doodlebug
Eyelet:  We R Memory Keepers

Glad your MOM love the tag. That is not one I would find funny. I wasn't sure about this stamp when I saw it. I guess it is good for those that like a joke.

Lindsey said...

I love that card. I made one of those for my BFF. You need to be careful who you make them for, but they sure are funny. The photos of your dog are a riot. I also love that big bone in the background. Wow. That's a whopper!

I have this stamp too and always wondered what I'd do with it, so now I'm going to have to CASE your hilarious card! This is too funny.....almost as funny as your ice-cream loving pooch :)

Maureen Morton said...

Hilariously rude, Jen! Don't know if I could do that to my dear OLD mom. Love the ice cream lickin', too.

Michelle said...

great card!

Jessi Fogan said...

THIS CARD IS THE BEST. Ever. And the fact that your mom had to work to pull the insult out? Somehow that makes it even better.
And Atti's in good company - Abby will eagerly provide recycling-rinsing services for any container at all :)

Darnell J Knauss said...

OMG, Jen, this is hilarious! Both the Old Bag card and Atticus (he's beautiful!)! Can I just say I love your Mom!
