Good-Bye Marlene

During the past year I've been following the hilarious blog called "Disguised as a Grown-up" and I learned last night that she's no longer going to blog! Bummer! Marlene has a great sense of humor and I really enjoyed the hilarious digi images she offered, as well as her cutting edge sense of humor that she shared in her daily posts.
The woman on this card is one of her Fanny images, and when my husband saw this, he asked me to make a birthday card for his sister! She always sends him gnarly birthday cards depicting bad habits and body functions, so this seemed like the perfect pay-back card for her. Her birthday is next week, and my husband can't wait for her reaction to receiving this. The inside says "At your age you should never trust a fart." LOL Just for the record, I also made her a "nice" card too! Hey, at our age, we all need a good laugh as those birthdays start piling up!
Thanks for all you've shared Marlene, and I wish you happiness and best wishes as your life takes you down a new path! I'm really going to miss your blog!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

Carol, This is so funny. Great coloring and paper choices. I LOVE that ribbon. The rix rac is a very nice divider for the papers.

Oh Carol, that is like the saddest news ever! I have so enjoyed her funny work! As a matter of fact, I used one of her images for hubby's BD card in November. I just recycled it so I can use it again! Marlene will be sadly missed from the blogging world.

As for this card for your SIL, what a good choice. I am sure she will crack up!

Oh dear, I'm glad you made a 'nice' card, too. LOL Now, your sil will have to come up with a better one for your hubby. Watch out!

OMG, I was not in the know about that blog. I checked it out and I'm sure I missed out on a fun blog. Too bad!!

OH no...I loved Marlene's stuff. How sad she is giving up blogging. Did she say why? I am sure she would be tickled at your creation.
I am so far behind in my Google Reader I should just start over!
