Extreme Birthday

Good early morning everyone! Well, it seems so much earlier than usual. We got home pretty late last night. The roads weren't that bad but the visibility wasn't great. The snow and rain kept us from going too fast. And then it got dark. And then it started to rain and snow again while it was dark and we had to go pretty slow again because it was hard to see when the snow is blowing toward you. But we made it home safe and sound and went right to bed. Now it is time to start another week. And Nick is going really slow this morning. Some of his soccer buddies get to stay home from school and sleep in. So he is mad at us. Yes, we are mean. The price you pay to play sports...

Anyway, on to the card. Today's card was inspired by one I saw in the recent issue of PaperCrafts Magazine. I used this card for this month's shoebox swap. It's a truly super easy card and I love how it came out! My card base is Sahara Sand and I stamped the splatter stamp from Extreme Elements in Sahara Sand. Then I took a strip of Sahara Sand and rounded the top by using the 1 3/4" circle punch. I stamped the greeting from Happiest Birthday Wishes in black StazOn and flagged the bottom. I sponged the edges with Sahara Sand ink and added a jumbo eyelet to the top. This is popped up onto the card. Then I stamped the car from Need for Speed in black StazOn onto Whisper White card stock and colored it in with the Poppy Parade marker. I cut it out and adhered it to the tag while popping the back end up. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

  1. Just come across this and a friend has asked if I'll make one similar for her husbands birthday - guess I best get a move on - it won't be the same but let's home it looks half as good especially as it's got to go to the UK.
