A BIG sign  for birthday boy.  he had matching decorations and cupcakes with toothpicks!

an invite is awesome to use this Batman cartridge for

Boys will be Boys was used for this cute birthday card.  Tiny Bubbles embossing folder & spots and dots were for our alien friend and the cuttlebug Mini Monsters set of embossing folders for the outline on the card.  I just love googly eyes!

Robotz cartridge and embossing folder Tiny Bubbles in the name.    His envelope was creative with this embossing folder

SPORT MANIA cricut cartridge and white cardstock with yellow ink to emphasize his current belt color

Sports Mania cartridge. hubby loved it! patterned paper is from..  an awesome stash I've collected over time :)  I know the LIFE seems a little off centered - but there is a green LIFE right behind it as well.

Superman cartridge.  a birthday boy received this card - short sweet and simple!

Close to My Heart was used for all the card except the ... DAD was a cricut cut from....  uh.. not sure -  :(  and brad hearts just finished it off.

can you tell their are fisherman in the family  -:)  I love creating this background with the fish and on a strip of white cardstock and inking around it.  All is Close To MY Heart products except for the ring that has the words!

Close to my Heart stamps, twine, ink and paper.  Cuttlebug embossing folder; Tiny Bubbles  and inked.

This card looks boyish like a small boy - BUT was intended for an older man..  inside says - your not getting older - you're getting better with age! Cricut cartrdige  Gypsy Wandering created the backboard for the dinosaur and the leaves from Create a Critter.  I used the embossing folders Tim Holtz "cracked" from sizzix and the Cuttlebug animal print was used for the top layer on the dinosaur,  peachy Keen stamp face is from critter faces set A medium. I created the saying on my computer

Close to My Heart stamps and paper made this awesome man birthday card. I used a small square foam and inked the colors to create this block background.
The inside of the card shows a car coming in with the words... Growing Up is optional...
