A BIrthday Card

Hi Everyone:  I hope that you had a wonderful Valentine's Day and gave out a little love.

My card today is a birthday card for my grandson.  He is turning 8 and I would like to know where the time goes.  He is getting so grown up.  I have a special bond with him as I was at the hospital to see him born.  His Dad was on a business trip and missed the birth by about 15 min.  He was born a month early so Dad and Mom thought there would be no problem with a business trip.  These little guys come when they decide and sometimes the unexpected happens.

He loves to ski  and is on a race team and this stamp is the closest I could get to skiing.

Stamps: On Your Birthday (w-111664 $41.95, p. 163, 2011/2012 IB&C), Extreme Snowboard (Retired)
Paper: Whisper White, Naturals White, Basic Black, Morning Mocha
Ink: Basic Black, Sahara Sand, Baja Breeze, Marina Mist
Accessories: Big Shot, Timeless Type Junior Alphabet, Glimmer Brads, Dazzling Diamonds, Brayer, Versa-mark, Black Embossing Powder.

I love creating scenes and using the brayer and don't do it as often as I would like.  

I hope that you enjoy.

Until next time....
