happy birthday....

Hard to believe that 13 years ago I gave birth to thee most fabulous boy....this kid literally lights up a room when he enters it...whether it is with his fabulous smile....his quick wit....or his never ending kindness...I've typed it before and I'll type it again and again...both of my kids will never know how much I love them....I'm truly lucky to have such wonderful kidlets....

Okay, I know you're not here to hear me gush about my kids.....onto some cards that I made for the boy....

A while ago I bought thee most fabbie "A Kawaii Day" rub on's, they are EAD Designs exclusive to Torendi...well, they are vinyl rub on's...that makes a ginormous difference...The vinyl is thicker but easier to adhere...wonderful combo....just look at the crisp contrast of the black vinyl and the patterned papers I used:

I paper pieced the images on The Boyfriend Cosmo Cricket paper....I used the bright yellow vinyl thickers to make the numbers pop! I kept this card clean and simple to really bring out the image on the PTI kraft base...and for the CAS-tastic Kraft Challenge.

Funny Story: I emailed Jenn of Torendi to find out what exactly that cute cube creature was...she thought it might be a tofu...LOL...sounds good to me says the 2nd generation Japanese peep that didn't even think of that!

My boy is one of my biggest supporters of my craftiness but sigh, also one of my biggest critics...LOL...he doesn't necessarily 'get' the whole CAS style...he tends to equate it to laziness...wtheck?! bahahaha....so I knew that I needed another card {one for me and one for darin} that had some stitching and maybe some fussy cutting....which led me to this card:

Last Christmas the boy picked up some sassy goodness for me...isn't he a sweetheart?! Seems perfect that he picked out pieces from Sassafras' Monstrosity line:) The base is Stampin' Up Summer Sun...all the patterned paper is Sassafras....the sentiment and the pointing hand is SRM:)

I was inspired by FTL98:

Thanks so much for stoppin' by...I do so appreciate all your comments!
