Nick's Birthday...

So, yesterday was my honey's wasn't the BEST day, as the girls were totally coming down off an exhausting weekend, so everyone was a little crabby :( I did try to make up for it by making a nice dinner, and letting him take a nice afternoon snooze...

We got him Rockband for the Wii for his birthday...he is REALLY tough to buy for, and always asks for practical stuff, so I thought this might be will be interesting, that's for sure!

So, inspired by Rockstar-ness...I made his card, to give him a little hint. I used this GREAT paper from Piggy Tales - Wonder Years from the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Collection. I used the smaller pattern for my cardfront, and then I cut a larger guitar out from a scrap piece.

I punched a star from my DCWV Glitter Cardstock Stack using my SU! Star punch, and used dimensionals to pop the star off the card, and the guitar of the star...nice effect.

The sentiment...I used my Big Deal Alpha from SU! for the 'h' and 'b' and PTI's Simple Alphabet for the rest. The stars around the sentiment were hand drawn with my sakura stardust pen.

I think my favorite birthday present had to have been the year I got my 10 speed bicycle...I had this dinky little red and white radio flyer bike that my knees would hit the handle bars when I peddled if I didn't sit just right or stand. Other kids would be like...'nice bike'. I begged for a 10 speed...and Mom and Dad came through, it was a Huffy - black with pink handlebars...I was *hot stuff* ;)

What was YOUR favorite birthday present??

Thanks for stopping by!
