Happy Birthday, Ian!


Hi there! Today is my oldest son, Ian's, 11th birthday! It is SO hard for me to swallow that I have an ELEVEN year old?? Where has the time gone? I know, all us moms feel the same, the days are long but the years are so short. Here's my boy at his birthday party last night:

And here's a couple of his baby pics **sniff sniff** 



He was a BIG baby! 8 lb. 10 oz! And he was 10 days early, so that was really big! he was an awesome baby, very mellow and sweet, slept like a rock. I still can't fathom how it's been 11 years, but I'll spare you my issues! ;) Onto the card! 


I made two, because my dear friend Beth's son was also born on the 17th, albeit two years later. Jay was at Ian's party last night, so I made him a card, too! :)

You might remember the birthday party invitations I made for Ian a few weeks ago. The party was a skateboarding/X Games theme, so I used the same Skater Dude stamps/die for these cards. I pulled out my Verve set Dude, I really felt they coordinated well, and since Ian SAYS "Dude" **ALL** the time, it was perfect! After I had the card all together, I felt it still needed a little somethin'-somethin' so I pulled out my old letter impression set and metal tags to put the boys' names on the cards. And there you have it, 2 super-cool birthday cards for 2 super-cool kids. Have a super day! :)

hugs, Noelle

supply list: patterned paper: MME lime twist 8' stack; die/skateboard stamps: Papertrey Ink; Dude stamp: Verve; HB stamp, solid cardstock, & ink: Stampin' Up!; metal tags & letter impression set; orange glittery brads

DUST IT OFF!: That letter impression set and metal tags are so old, I can't even tell you who made them! But, they still look neat on these cards. :)
