Happy Birthday you old buzzard!

A quick post from me this morning showing you a card I made for someone's birthday.  That 'someone' is getting older and older and older and with that comes all the jokes about being 'buzzard meat', the 'scavengers are circling', etc.  It's much more enjoyable when someone else is the one getting older... takes the focus off me!
Thanks for stopping by!

Stamp & Image - both included in the Art Impressions Zoo Crew Buzzard Set 4194
Paper - GCD Studio

May the Blue Bird of Happiness lay an egg in your beer! You are so cool Marilyn!
Don't be shocked - I have had some major computer problems plus the fact we are in the mist of a move. It will be a good while before I can post.

I just bought this silly "Blue Bird". I have already made two cards with him. I know he will be a favorite of mine. I love how you colored this one, so life like. Great job!
