Challenge #94 "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" hosted by Jeanne.....

I love Birthdays (especially mine)!! I have a whole lot of birthdays coming up in, around and shortly after the holiday season. I get completely discomboobalated making so many cards along with Christmas cards, so it was great to make a birthday card in advance (that's to say instead of the night before) LOL.

Anyway I embossed 'WILD PARTY' in black and coloured it with Tombow Markers. I love this adorable stamp and have been dying to colour it.....I was enjoying colouring so much I completely lost track of time and DH was waiting for dinner. I guess he knows me well enough to know NOTHING will tear me away so he went ahead and cooked dinner!!! Yes, that's right while I was colouring this sweet sweet man cooked my dinner. Steak, mushrooms, salad - it was amazing. God Bless this man! Lucky, Lucky me!

Okay so back to the card. I had some brown Bazzill cardstock that I embossed with a Cuttlebug folder awhile back and didn't use as it so happened it was perfect for this card. I found some blue polka dot paper that matched my blue monster guy (brought out his eyes don't ya think). I used my MS punch and put a strip behind the image I mounted on blue cardstock. Put a "Happy Birthday" on top and there you have it. I think my son-in-law will like this one.

Thanks for stopping by and hope everyone has a good week - Don't eat too much candy on Trick or Treat Night!!!
