Happy Birthday Queen Octi!

This image just cracks me up.
I think it may be the eyes.
Or maybe it's just the fact that it is an octopus wearing a crown.
Whatever it is...I just love it.

This is a HUGE birthday shout out to my good friend, Connie.


If anyone deserves a fabulous day, it would be YOU!
I am so lucky to know you and call you my friend.

The stamp is from Sun Spirit Studios (although I don't see it listed anymore) and they are really worth a look-see because they have some cool little embellishments and other wacky stamps to choose from.
Colored with Copics, added Stickles to the crown and the paper is from a million years ago when the dinosaurs did paper crafts.

You're totally right that that octopus has an un-put-your-thumb-onitable wackyness to it that is hillarious!
