Created this Birthday Tag recycling a manilla folder to make the Tag base. Used TH Tag die and used Sizziz BIGkick to cut the Tag instead of using my TH Vagabond. Used Tim Holtz stencil for background w/ TH Distress inks. Used Hero Arts stamps for sentiments. Added a humor joke on attached tag.

I cut one of the HA stamp into 3 pieces:
'sending you'
'and laughter' 

Stamped HA birthday sentiment & used my Sizzix BIGkick to cut the sentiment tag using a fav Spellbinder die that to me has a look of a Sun with the scalloped edges.

Humor joke:
Little Johnny walks into his classroom wearing a single glove.
His teacher asks him what he's doing. "Well ma'am," says Johnny. "I was watching the weather program on TV and
it said it was going to be sunny, but on the other hand it could
get quite cold!"
