Happy Birthday David!

Hello Friends!!  This is gonna be a quickie!  I'm keeping up with the birthday celebrations..

Yesterday was my younger brother's birthday.  I was in the middle of making his card, then got distracted with other projects so I wasn't able to finish it until after we cut the cake his GF made for him.  He likes sports, so I used a few images to create this one:

The hat is from the O&A Buddies set; head and body from the Roll call kit all from The Greeting Farm.  I used the FFC WOW Sketch #9 for my layout as it was still fresh in my mind.  Kept the colors & papers real simple.  Used a few embossing folders and a couple punches.   I also case'd part of Rachel's card.  I loved how she used the balloons and used the letters instead of writing out the whole word.  I used stars instead.  You can't really tell, but the blue center part of the card was embossed with the Tim Holtz brick wall folder.  I used white pigment ink to highlight parts of the wall to give it a distressed feel.

Lastly, I made this into an easel card.  I didn't have a chance to fully finish the bottom part so using PAINT I typed in "Happy Birthday David."  I'm still thinking how I want to finish it off.

And here is a fun picture of David with the yummy cake (yellow cake with white frosting & a key lime filling) his girlfriend Guille (pronounced Ghee-ya) made for him.  I asked him to change his shirt for this picture and he was such a ham!  He could totally sell this product!

Here he is with Guille, they are such a funny couple so it's always nice to get updated pictures of them.

Alrighty friends, I hope you'll stop by later tonight for my Farm Fresh Challenge post for Friday.  It's going to be a fun challenge, hope you all will play along.

Mahalo for stopping by and enjoy the rest of this week.
