Happy Birthday Fly Guy

Featured at Little Red Wagon

Coffee/Tea of the Day - Tea Thyme

Today we celebrate our son, Mick's birthday. We were blessed this past weekend to be able to get together for a quick lunch with Mick and his girlfriend, Lauren, as well as Tyler and his fiancee, Danielle. Mick and Lauren came to Ohio for a tattoo convention and concert while Tyler and Danielle came into town to get their marriage license.  We were only able to spend a few hours together, but it was wonderful to see everyone. unfortunately, I ended it all by having a really bad seizure episode, but that is the way it goes these days. :( can't seem to kick these things.

this is the card that I made for Mick. I used the "Fly Guy" image from Power Poppy on the outside and the "Leaping Trout" image on the inside. I didn't get a photo of the inside of the card. sorry.

all dies are by Spellbinders, with distress stickles being added to the cat tails. vintage buttons are from my stash and wide grosgrain ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Happy Birthday stamp, linen thread, and little banner punch are by SU!  papers are from the Authentiqe Meadow collection. I am just about out of it and down to a few little scraps... will need to buy more of this wonderful paper! I obviously love it very much! :) little dots were added to the matting die cut with a white gel pen.

I will be back in another day or so to share my MIL's birthday card. her birthday was yesterday.

thank you so much for stopping by!

Hi Jennifer. I just loved your comment on my blog, so I thought I'd pop in for a quick visit. Firstly, I'm so sorry to hear about your seizure!! That's just shocking!
Congratulations on Mick's birthday! It doesn't matter how old our babies get, they're always just our babies, and any time we get to spend with them is a blessing.
Love your card too!! I need to make a fishing card soon, so I'm going to go find this image. It's perfect! Love your layout and those fantastic reeds!

Very nice card for your son! Such a nice image and the die cut looks great with it. You have to grab any time that you can with your grown "kids" and enjoy the heck out of them. Sorry it ended kind of rugged. Thanks for joining the a2z Scrapbooking challenge.

Sammy said...

I love, love, love this! The little details, like the paint on the edges and the white dots around the image are perfect, and it makes for a fabulous masculine card all put together.
With DT cap on: Thank you for joining us at Sweet Stampin' this week. Sammy-x
