Happy Birthday Tuan!

Before I start my post I just wanted to share that Sweet November is celebrating their 1st birthday/anniversary with a special blog hop. You can start the hop at the ATS website which has a list of all the players. Make sure to go over and wish Sweet November a Happy Birthday! I did and it was soo much fun! Mahalo!
Happy Saturday blogland friends. Hope you had a good week and are now enjoying this well deserved weekend. I've got a busy day ahead. Going to head to the Carson Rubber stamp convention with my bestie Renate and her boo Zach. Then later we are meeting up with some friends in Cerritos for some Korean Bar-b-Q. Yumm! It's our friend's (Kat) bday, so it should be good fun. Today's share is a card I made for my co-worker's (Tuan) birthday. He turned 30 yesterday, but believe me he doesn't look a day over 21! Must be his asian genes. :)
I used Toxic (or is he sweet) for his card, cause he sort of resembles Tuan. I wiped off his wings and I added a little something something to the image. Can you see what it is? Look closely at his mouth. Yes, unfortunately he's a smoker. It's funny that my other co-workers totally recognized who I was trying to portray once I added the cigarette to the image. Too funny! Since this is a guy card, I went simple and mounted the white cs on dark brown paper, then onto a craft card which I sponged. I like the clean lines which is perfect for any guy card.
Okie dokie, gotta get cranking on a card for Kat before I leave for my busy day. Hope you are all getting crafty this weekend and if you have time, stop on over at the ATS website for the Sweet November birthday blog hop.
Mahalo for stopping by!
