Clucky Happy Birthday!

It was my son's 31st. Birthday on Friday. He owns a great little business in Melville, SK. called the "Peddler Shop". He sells a great variety of goods..(candy, food, toys, gifts, sporting goods, electronic accessories, handmade soap, scrap booking supplies..ect.....you name it..he just may have it!) He also rents out Videos, DVDs, Games and fixes Bikes. He is a hardworking, kind, generous, "Terrific Guy" with a Great sense of Humour. (did I also mention he also gives me great deals?...on videos and whatever...why?? cause I'm the Lucky Mama of course..hahha).

This card got a chuckle out of him........

I used SU card stock and inks. Image is a Penny Black stamp and is water colored with H20's. Sentiments are SU. Basic Grey and Costco paper. The chicken wire bkgrd. is Costco paper put through the printer with a template I downloaded from Inkstains. The ribbon is from Michael's. The accents are done with Sakura pens and Scribbles (on the cakes). I have two sewing machines...one that is wonderful (cost a small fortune)and one that has always been a pain in the butt..always tangling..broken thread etc...For some reason it sews paper just fine...Yay!!

I have another son that has a Birthday tomorrow...so will be uploading again soon......Happy Spring!!
