Happy Birthday Dad!

I used Wednesday's SCS sketch to create a birthday card I needed for my niece Katie's husband whose birthday is today!

They are the parents of my dear grand nephew, Landon, who is now 4 months old - so this is Greg's first birthday as a DAD!

I thought it would be fun to send him a card as if it was from Landon himself so I wrote a little note from Landon inside saying how he skyped me when they weren't looking to ask me to make the card for him!

I kept the sketch clean and simple with this adorable photo of Landon front and center. I used bright colors for the panels to match those of the colorful play seat Landon is having so much fun in!

On the inside I put another picture of Landon with his Dad from Thanksgiving -as well as another sentiment. The sentiments are from the Free Spirit Sentiments set by Waltzingmouse.
Gosh, I just love this kid to pieces!!!
Tomorrow I'll be back posting some fun scrapbook pages of Landon as part of Day #2 of the Waltzingmouse 3 day Spellbinders Grand Calibur blitz! Day #1 is today and some of the other WMS DT are posting - Check out all the details on the WMS blog - there are prizes to be won!!

Lovin this! A while back I was looking for a birthday card for a friend's son. I had zero luck finding what I was looking for. I told a group of friends about this problem one night while we were having a few drinks. We proceeded to get smashed and make up a bunch of greeting cards we found funny. I had been writing down the cards we made up and the next morning I read them. Much to my surprise the cards were still funny even when sober.
