Monday and 40

Happy Monday,

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.
