For my project, I made a birthday card for my future son-in-law Cody who is turning 24. He has a beautiful sleeve of skulls so I thought he might enjoy these skellies. I used one of the new rubber images from Smeared Ink by Misty Benson. Yes, I know it's the Death card, but it's also a card of rebirth, and each year we have the opportunity to re-invent ourselves. I stamped the image on a grey cardstock, colored it with Prismacolor pencils, Fabrico markers and Pitt pens. The Happy Birthday & fun is from Making Memories, and the Time Flies & Where Does the Time Go? are Dimensional accents from ??. I printed out the "partay" senti & deckle edged, colored with Ranger's distress ink in Brick. The little calendar is from 7 gypsies and the flower from Prima.
As a side note, I crocheted him a beanie using my handspun wool in grey and black. Tried to scan it, fail... Found my camera & am charging up the batteries to take pics. Anyway, I hope you liked the card and leave a comment if you wish. Now off you go to hop to my S&S Sisters' sites and leave them some love. The list is to your right. Have a wonderful day! Dianne
