Happy Birthday, Beast

My college roommate and I were definitely not morning people.  We would get up at the same time and have breakfast together but usually wouldn't exchange more than a grunt  or two before we finished eating.  Because of that we ended up calling each other Beast and Crust (or Beastly and Crusty).  So when I saw this MFT Beast Friends set I knew I had to have it if for no other reason than to make a birthday card for my favourite Beast.  :)  This week's MFT sketch challenge provided me with the perfect design for it and I used some fun MFT papers along with their wonky stitched circle die.  The yeti is coloured with Copics, fussy cut and popped up on foam tape.

Have a lovely weekend!

Oh how perfect!! I'll bet she laughs out loud as soon as she sees this! What a great little story too. No one dares talk to me for an hour after I wake up, but since DH sleeps in, it's no longer a problem!! This is such a fun card, and I love the colors of the papers and how you've colored the little beast too. Waaay cute! Have a good Sunday. Bev
