Welcome to the Smeared and Smudged Members Blog Hop to view projects from several talented ladies at S&S Forum.  The list of participants is to your right -->

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
