Thursday OBG Challenge - Stella 'Over the Hill'

 Oldie but a Goodie day at Bugaboo's Catch the Bug Challenge site. Always so much fun to find one of the older stamps and use it again. In my case I went way back to this wonderful image of 'Over the Hill' Stella. Gives me a giggle everytime I see it.  It must be the Halloween season  influence on my design because I showed it to a friend and she said "Oh a Halloween card". ''Nope" I said "but now that you mention it, I can see what you mean". We had a good laugh. So now I am thinking it would make  a wonderful October birthday card, who knew :O)!
Note: I am showing two version of the same card as I thought maybe the first was too plain.
Stamp; Bugaboo's  'Stella's Birthday 'Over the Hill'
Sentiment: same as above.

  1. This is brilliant and so funny ! Thank you for joining us at Simon Says Stamp this week X

  2. Yup, Stella always makes me smile too. Funny how someone else interprets a card. I didn't notice the first card lacking until you said something and showed the other card. They are both perfect....with and without shiny so it's a win win and some one will enjoy getting the card.

  3. I don't think it looks like a Halloween card at all! I would love to get a card like that... when I'm much older, lol!

  4. Fabulous fun card and love both versions and unforunately I can relate to the sentiment lol

  5. ROFL, Glenda! Love that sentiment. Great die cuts for accentuating the image.

  6. Hmmm, I didn't think Halloween when I saw it - but maybe because it's Stella. Guess great minds think alike - I'm using Stella for OBG today as well. Wonderful layout and dies on this!

  7. This is how I have felt lately! A little clueless LOL! Love your sassy Stella creation! ♥ Sue Kment
