DUDE, Happy Birthday. (CQC189, STB17)


Hi all! I am just rolling out cards tonight. But I guess that's not all that surprising seeing as I haven't had time to stamp ALL week! and here's why.....

Yeah, the little man graduated pre-school! I can hardly believe I'll have a kindergartner next year! Then today was older bros first race of the season! Love that we don't have a game to go to every week with triathlon, but when they are doing a race, it kind of sucks your weekend away. Getting ready much of saturday, getting packed, bike checks, etc. Then up at 5am this morning to get them to the transition area in time. This mama is beat! ;) Plus as you can see here, my oldest took a spill on his scooter in the rain last week and we ended up needing an x-ray for his hand (chin got banged up too, obviously..) Fortunately it was NOT broken for once! Yea! :)

But I was itching to play a couple challenges since it's been so long. This is for ColourQ #189 (sure miss my ColourQ DT friends! So grateful for Facebook so we can still keep in touch!) :)  and Seize The Birthday #17! Here's the graphics:


I still had all the stuff out from my Gallery Idol Cards, thought I'd make some use and make another youth male birthday card. I can always use those!!

I used the Stampamajig to line up my "Dude" stamp (Verve). The top one and the fourth one are both stamped in Ruby Red ink, but the top one was stamped off first. Of course I also used the Certainly Celery and the Calypso Coral ink pads.... The birthday stamp is Stampin' Up! the paper is We R Memory Keepers and the flair is from Bossy Joscie, so fun that flair!

I ripped up the edges of the Celery card really good with my distressing/razor tool and then added some grunge to it with some black ink sponged on.

Well, that's it for me today! Be back soon as we are approaching our new TCP release very very soon! Tomorrow night is the Pajama Party on Splitcoaststampers! Hope you can join us :)

Hugs, Noelle
