CALL THE FIRE DEPARTMENT RIGHT AWAY!! Here is my card for our newest QFTD154 - Angie aka amrucci - Talk about a HOT gallery- Angie has such a varied bunch of layouts and delightful images, one cuter than the next, especially the kids cards!!
I finally chose BIRTHDAY GIRL because I had this hilarious idea with a similar "lady with a cake" stamp from AI stamps . I got the idea from a card I saw once, but cannot locate it now - If this was your idea, please let me know so I can give you the credit!!
I popped up the lady and her cake, and added a sentiment on the bottom, instead of stamping it on my card. I avoided the ribbon (BECAUSE IT MIGHT CATCH FIRE TOO!) but I did add some stickles. And giggled the whole time I was making it!!
Angie, thanks so much for all the wonderful inspiration and your sweet cards - it is so good to hear your encouraging comments, bless your heart. Enjoy your week long reign and the cards made in your honor!!

Love this fun card! I love how it looks burnt! Great idea! A very funny card I would love to send to a few people!
Thanks so much for being guest designer and your kind words for Queen Angie! I appreciate it! You did a great job.

Bawhahahah this lady is carrying quite the torch!! This is so funny. I like how you paper pieced her dress and then how you popped up that cake. Great coloring and perfect sentiment! You did Queen Angie proud. Great card Sue.

This is hilarious!! Reminds me of when we tried to do this for my mother (I think she was only turning 40 at the time). You could see the glow from the other room and it melted all the frosting off the cake!!
Love that lady's paper pieced dress and the burning flames you have going. Great card!

Sue - this is one of the best cards I have ever seen! OMG - I love it!!!!! What a fun idea and it is sure to make the recipient laugh like crazy. You are sooooo crazy. Fun, fun, fun. I am starting to feel that my birthdays are like this (I know I am younger than you by a few years but it is true!). Seriously great card. So glad I dropped by this morning for a visit at 5:24 AM (Alabama time) while you were still catching zzzzz. Hugz!
