thank you, doctor spooner!

have i mentioned that lovely husband jeff and i have been collecting spoonerisms* for the last few years? my favorite so far has been, "the nuns of gaverone"! turns out, monstas enjoy a good play on words, as well!

(monsta cut from paperchase giftwrap; vintage gamecard facsimile from "the ephemera book" (a recent rummage sale find!) patterned paper: dcwv; cupcake: martha stewart: stickers and clouds: love elsie; other: dymo labeller, colorbox inks, foam tape)

text reads, "happy earthday, birthling!"

to answer the question you have very kindly refrained from asking: YES, i will be making some non-monsta birthday cards again soon! it's just that january is kind of top-heavy with "guy birthdays" and i needed some suitable greetings, pdq. also, i am just still really really enamoured of these little dudes--they never fail to make me smile! at least nobody can accuse me of being fickle, right??! :)

*do not try this with huckleberry finn! oof! you've tried it anyway, haven't you?! well don't say i didn't warn ya! :)


  1. Oh, the possibilities! I love your monsta cards. ;-)

  2. such a fun monsta birthday cupcake card to the birthling!!!

  3. A monsta card a day keeps the aliens away.
    LOVE IT!

  4. I love how your mind thinks..."birthling"...pure GENIUS!

    Like cupcakes, who could get tired of Monsta cards??!

  5. You are so funny. Your blog makes me smile every single day and today is no exception.

    Love the card! It's so nice to see guy friendly cards.

  6. Thats so incredibly cute and that sentiment is sooo clever!! You crack me up! Where do you get it all from, talented genius miss Lauren? Love it!!

  7. Ahh, monstas. I personally can's get enough of them!! Keep em commin' Lauren!
