Why do the weekends go so fast? We had a great one! For Jack's B-day we took him and a friend bowling (Jack's favorite activity these days) and then they came back to the house and played. Sunday the weather was so perfect and we worked outside in the yard a bit and then I scrapped. I am working on some fun projects for myself and for Cord Scrapbook Studio. I am working with the LYB Making the Grade collection and some MME Winter wonderland. Talk about fun and more fun!!!! Golly I love paper! LOL!!
As I mentioned before we have been jammed packed with birthdays, and I have been busy making birthday cards for hubby and Jack. This is a card I made for my hubby! He turned 40 this year and I knew I had to make a special card. So I broke out my Jillibean Soup!! I used my Silhouette to cut out the 40. I knew I wanted to use the negative space. I then layered the bottom half of my card using scraps from my Macho Nacho collection ( I am so sad because all I have left are teeny tiny pieces now). I then used some of the awesome navy burlap twine from The Stringery ( I am totally addicted to this navy burlap twine. It is so awesome!). I then wanted to add some paint splotches and broke out my Mister Huey sprays. I then wanted to add a little flag or banner and I broke out my new banner bits from Jillibean. I love how it turned out and hubby LOVED it.
