A Bit of Fun for an 18th

One of my daughter's best friend's ( they met when they were 3!!!) turned 18 yesterday and Sarah asked me if I could make him a funny card. When I think of funny cards I can't go past Bugaboo Stamps - the lovely Cheryl from My Cardmaking Heaven has been doing some fantastic cards with these guys so they were my first stop. I showed them to my daughter and as the drinking AND driving age in Melbourne is 18 she thought this one would be appropriate for Luke. I don't agree with drinking and driving at ANY age but any message that gets across the idea NOT to drink and drive can't be bad! 

I love Gus - he's the Pop every young man should have in his life to give advice - or maybe not - LOL.

My DP is from my Basic Grey Sugar Rush paper pad and the 18 was cut using my cuttlebug dies. Poor old Gus needs pretty thick glasses to see properly so I've helped him out with some crystal effects lenses.

Happy 18th Luke - hope you like the card!
