Sunshine's Stamps and a Happy 18th!

I get a kick out of introducing one of Sunshine's Stamps new images for the week to you. This is Tipsy McStagger and I think he is a wonderful image for an 18 year old male birthday - the fact that my daughter has lots of friends turning 18 this year has a lot to do with me choosing to show off Tipsy instead of one of the other new releases for the week - Clammy Pete or Herky Bird. You can check these other guys out here - and see what the DT do with them by checking out the links on the side bar.
I do want to add that here in Australia the legal drinking age is 18 - so I'm NOT endorsing underage drinking. Most young guys get a little rough around the edges on their 18th - so I used my distressing tool to roughen up the edges of the image layers and sentiment - thought it would fit the mood. Tipsy was a lot of fun to colour - and I nearly made the foam 3D and covered the glass with Crystal effects - maybe next time - or maybe not - not sure an 18 year old would appreciate the extra effort!!!
Here's hoping there's a little Sunshine in your week too...

Great card Debbie - love the image and the background paper. I think it's a fabulous card for an 18 year old Aussie male. Like your comment about being 'rough around the edges' - would love to see you do a 'before' and 'after' card !! LOL

Another great job with these new images!!
