Quick Birthday Card!!

Sorry I haven't been around as much lately. On the weekend we made a road trip. We visited my mother in Saskatoon SK (about 4 hrs away) and stayed at my brothers. We had a great time!! But on the way home we had some major car issues......at night of course. After sitting on the highway for over two hours.....we got a nice tow ride back to Melville. Now since Monday I have had a virus or cold or whatever. I don't get sick very often ....(of course I just recently mentioned that fact to one of my daughters..lol). Hopefully I'll be back in my happy stamping room soon.

Here is quick Birthday card I made for my son...I received this Fabulous image from Carla at Moralia's Weblog Thanks Carla!!

Did you notice that big brad....Happy Birthday?? ..lol......it wasn't suppose to be there ...but I had a smudge to cover.

Here's the recipe...

Stamps - Stamping Bella Fella

Papers - white, choc chip, Michael's, Costco and basic grey

this card is great, I thought I was the only one that creates smudges that have to be covered, glad to know that I am not alone. Hope both you and your car are feeling better soon.

That's a great card and I wouldn't have known you were covering a mistake if you didn't mention it! Looks fabulous! Funny, I work a few towns over in Melville! We don't have any Saskatoons over here though...but plenty of other hard to pronounce indian names! So funny to hear out of towners try to say them! Hope you are feeling better soon! Have a great night!

I have missed you, and I hope that you are feeling much better soon! Car trouble is the pits especially when far from home at night! Yuck!

Your card is wonderful, love the image, colored perfect as always, but I really love how you embossed the background paper then distressed the edges... Very Manly!
