Another Birthday

We have A LOT of June and July birthdays in my family. Today is my husband's birthday! Yesterday, my baby sister had her first baby! You all know Arwen just had a birthday, and mine is coming on July 5th! The list goes on and on! :)


I was trying to think of a card to make for my husband and I came across another sketch challenge on Jen's blog, I{heart}2stamp.com. I loved the sketch and used that as a starting point for my husband's card. I thought he would enjoy this seashell card. It's a little more interesting than a normal guy card that I would make with sentiments or shapes and backgrounds. The sentiment I thought fit well rather than the normal "Happy Birthday" sentiment. We celebrated my husband's birthday yesterday at his mom's. His mom made a DELICIOUS dinner! We had such a nice time. The girls LOVE going to "Mema and Alan's". Savannah gets to dress up in costumes and play in the sandbox, while Arwen crawls around playing with blocks and Tickle Me, Elmo. Happy Birthday, Dear! We hope you have a WONDERFUL day! We love you! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Beautiful Beach; Ink- Cameo Coral, Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Bordering Blue, VersaMagic Sahara Sand; Paper- DCWV brown, coral, tan, SU Shimmery White CS; Accessories- horizontal slot punch, brown grosgrain ribbon, paper piercer, Chocolate Chip marker, Aquapainter.

Excellent idea to us the shells for a masculine card! They are so difficult to do and new ideas are always appreciated! Thanks!
