Hope Your Birthday Rocks!

Happy Sunday!  Our neighbors' son had a birthday last week and his party is today.  I made this card for him.  Kevin turned 15 this year!  I cannot believe how the time has flown since he was a little boy.  But time does go on.  I thought this would be a good teen boy card.  The stamp set I used is You're My Hero from Taylored Expressions.   I remember buying this set because part of the proceeds of the sale of this set were going to a charity.  Loved that!  I pulled out my new paper pad from October Afternoon called Sasparilla.  Love the patterns in this and again, I thought they worked well for a teen boy card.

I used the July sketch from Sketch for You to Try.  I haven't played with these sketches for a while.  So nice to be able to play this month.

Now here's Kevin's card from last year that I never posted.  I thought I had, but didn't.  How did that happen?  All these products are from My Time Made Easy.  The image is the Got Game digital stamp set and was colored using GIMP.  I added the "14" on his shirt (for his age then) and the "T" on his cap.  He was entering high school last year and that is the first initial of his school.  The paper is called Pop Some Fun digital paper.  The sentiment is from the acrylic set called Keep Strong.  I added the red star in place of the "o".

That's it from me for today!  Hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
