Birthday Wishes

Hi everyone and Happy Saturday! I hope you enjoyed the grand opening of my friend Kristy's brand new store, Scraptastical Kreations. I hope you enjoyed the blog hop yesterday too. Make sure to keep stopping by the Scraptastical Kreations fan page over on Facebook as well throughout the weekend. We will be posting challenges and opportunities to win some nice prizes so keep stopping by.

Do you have any exciting plans for the weekend? Today hubby and I are going out to lunch, then to see Harry Potter (I pre-ordered our tickets so we are guaranteed a seat :) ). I'm so excited, I LOVE the Harry Potter books and have read them all at lease once. I have two bookcases in our library dedicated to Harry Potter, including all the books (both paperback and hardcover, Harry Potter bookends, bookmarks, snow globes . . . I'm a crazy fan :) ). Other than that, hubby has to work some this weekend so I hope to get a few more layouts done. Well, enough chit chat, onto my project for today :)

I decided to create a cute, simple, masculine birthday card for my project today. Isn't this little guy adorable? I love the balloon animal in his paw :) The cute bear comes from the brand new Scraptastical Kreations pattern called Let's Celebrate. Kristy just unveiled this new set yesterday as part of the grand opening of the store. Isn't it adorable? I see lots of projects in my future with this set :) I downloaded the file from the website and then loaded it into SCAL and sized everything the way I wanted it. I then cut all the pieces out using my Silhouette, inked around the bear pieces, and then put everything together (I use a zip dry glue pen for gluing my paper pieces together, I use it for my Cricut cuts too, it works great). After I put everything together, I did some doodling using my white gel pen. Next I created my card base using SU cardstock. My DP is from MME (My Mind's Eye), Party Time paper stack. For some finishing touches, I added a navy blue bow (tied with my Bow Easy) and blue pearls. The sentiment is from an old Hero Arts set. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. I hope you enjoyed my card. Thanks so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and a wonderful weekend and don't forget to keep stopping by the Scraptastical Kreations fan site over on FB for some prizes. Hugs!
