Happy Birthday Sassy Boss!! plus Sassy Challenge #35

Oct26 blk

Today is Cheryl's Birthday!

Hope you have a wonderful day Boss Lady!

Our Sassy Challenge for today is Anything But Square. Also, be sure to check out the challenge blog to see about our Guest Designer spot!!

I chose Snowman Parts for my first card...well, actually it was my only card until a friend of ours had an "incident". More on that after this card!

Oct26 Round Parts Can't you just imagine all the pieces for building a snowman all thrown into a basket...what fun! It's colored with Copics and a little gel pen for accents. Sponged the edges with whatever "brown" distress ink was last used in my dauber.

Now, for my second card...I'm sorry...I couldn't resist!

Oct26 Bob's Fire blk

Ok, so, Sunday afternoon was beautiful...a little blustery though and certainly NOT good weather for "burning a little debris"! A friend of ours (about 3 miles down the road) decided he'd just burn a little pile. He carefully watched the fire and had his shove at hand to make sure it stayed contained to his little pit.

But...what's this?... a little smoke coming from over the hill? Hmmm, must have been a spark that blew over there...better take trusty shovel and put it out! When he topped the hill it was more than just a little fire! In the end about 10 acres, 3 fire companies and Bob's pride were scorched! Thankfully no one was hurt, the crops had been harvested and no property damage! (I'm sure his neighbors are VERY thankful!)

So, you see.... 
I HAD TO MAKE THIS CARD,
using
Fireman John!

It also works for Cheryl's birthday!!
HAHA...her cake must have a gazillion candles!
(don't blame me, SHE gave me the idea!)

Oct26 Bob's FireInside it says... Heard you had a BLAZING time! It's colored with Copics, white/glitter gel pen, masked and airbrushed using my cloud template. (sentiment computer generated)

Bob has a good sense of humor...I can't wait for him to get the card!
