Before I share today’s project, I just have to share a funny little tidbit…
So – as you know, I’m a blogger. I use Blogger to host my blog.
Blogger has lots of fun features to let you know what others think about your blog.
It will tell you which posts get the most views, which countries your readers live in and even what search terms people use to find your blog….which is exactly where this little story begins.
Out of curiosity, I looked through these search terms and there were a few obvious contenders:
  • Damask Love Blog – makes sense…that is, after all the name of my blog
  • Stamping Royalty 2011 Winners – still reeling that I am in this group!!!
  • Splatter Paint Stationery – which I’m guessing will lead you to this project.
Now here is where things take a turn!
The following two are search terms that, apparently, will lead you to my blog:
“Funky Damask Blogger”
I’m not sure how to interpret this one.
I suppose I’m funky – as long as “funky” means that I have a spunky personality rather than yucky & smelly.
Now brace yourself for the pièce de résistance…
“Birthdays are for fun, enjoy a sticky bun”
Huh? What? Que?
No clue here but I find it pretty hilarious.
I do agree that birthdays are for fun.
I also agree that one’s birthday may be a great time to enjoy a sticky bun.
I have absolutely no idea, though, how one would find my blog by Googling this phrase. Furthermore, I’m not exactly sure why one would ever use this phrase in life (although, I’m thinking I’ll now use it on a regular basis, just for kicks).
At any rate, as long as this phrase is going to lead to my blog – I’d might as well create something that is remotely related to birthdays and sticky buns…so here we go!
I don’t have a sticky bun stamp – but I did pick up the Hero Arts Have a Donut stamp set, during my recent trip the HA factory.
Donuts are kinda like sticky buns – so I think it’s a fair substitution!
To turn this donut into a birthday donut, I downloaded the Hero Arts Birthday Wishes printable and cut out one of the candle images.
Thanks for stopping by for some Damask Love…and if today is your birthday…have fun and enjoy a sticky bun!

  1. Haha…I don’t even WANT to know the phrases one would use to get to hownowbrownkow…lol

    Love the birthday card I especially love the multiples of the word “birthday”. Brilliant.

  2. That is too funny Amber! This card is AWESOME! Seriously, I love the hot pink, the repeating part of the sentiment and well, that donut is just delish! LOVE this.

  3. Oh my word, that is just too funny! Amber, I love the way you write- makes me feel like we’re having a conversation or something! 🙂

    This card is awesome! Love the happy colors, and the glossy accents was a great touch!

  4. Oh this is so dang cute! Love the way you stamped the repeating sentiment and the great color combo. And lol at your post – you are too funny!

  5. lol! That stamp could also double as a bagel with cream cheese (the sprinkles could be flecks of herbs or something)!!
    I love your repeated “birthday” with the one “happy!” Will have to try!

  6. Those are funny statistics! Sticky bun might be a Chinese thing. 😉

    I LOVE the design of your card, Amber! I love the subtle repetition of birthday in pink and the icing on your donut is to die for! It looks really amazing.
