Oh Rats!!

CB - Memory Box
Stamps - Alphabet - CTMH; Cupcake - Hero Arts
Martha Stewart Punches (Mouse border, small mouse & large mouse)
Ink - Memento

The inside sentiment says: "Sorry I missed your Birthday"

I think the card is funny - that's why I made it. However now that I'm actually LOOKING at it, I'm wondering how many people will get creeped out due to the whole rodent-theme. For me, it's just a play on words AND a great way to utilize 3 (count them - 1, 2, 3) MS punches!! Even with the whole rodent theme, I'm kind of ok with rats.......in summer school one year, Gail, Jon and I had a rat (Harley, and she was lovely) that we trained (we were in a very interesting-although-some-would-consider-geeky summer school program - we were considered "gifted".....hmmm......gifted with what I'm not certain, but I know we had fun that summer!!). So I have a soft spot for rats.....as is obvious when I think back on my first "serious" boyfriend .......OOOPS - that's a whole other RODENT story!!!

I thought it would be funny, you know "Oh Rats!!!" (I missed your b-day) and then literally have a bunch of rats running around......oh well, some of my friends are as sick as me.....they'll appreciate it!!

Hmmm, the card is pretty straight-forward, the trickiest thing....I double-punched the tails in a couple of pink CS to lend a feeling of authenticity for my two star rodents. I dabbled with the idea of putting a google eye on the larger rat, but that would have made it too cartoony - not a feel that I was going for on this card. I also considered taking a few "bites" out of the cupcake but I knew that would pretty much send everyone over the edge, so I refrained.........
