Masculine Birthday

Happy Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. It's still cold and snowy here in Pittsburgh and more of this for the next week. But, it can't stay like this forever. After all, it is spring (lol).

I went over to pick up my middle grandson from school yesterday. He called me and asked me to come over. I don't usually go over 2 days during school but since he took the time to call and ask.....I had to do it.

I fixed after school snacks for all 3 of them and then took Aidin to baseball practice. It was an indoor practice because of the snow and cold. His first game is supposed to be today, but I don't see that happening but we will see.

Well onto my card for today. This one is posted on the Great Impressions Stamps Blog today as part of my design team responsibilities. I decided to go with a masculine birthday card.

I started with my layout which is this weeks sketch challenge 428 over on Splitcoaststampers.  I decided to follow the layout fairly close and not add any additional layers.

I used the Stampin-Up" top note die" for my background shape and cut some Stampin-Up designer paper from the "sycamore street" collection.

My sentiment is from the Great Impressions Stamp -"just because you're you - F200".  I stamped the sentiment in island indigo ink.

My flag pennants are Spellbinders dies and cut in tangerine orange and island indigo. I added a tangerine tango button to complete my card.

That's it for me for today so until next time........God bless.
