When our pup turned one we had a birthday party for him. Honestly, it was more for the kids than anything else. I do try and spoil him a bit on his ‘special day’. Our first pup was a rescue dog and we had no idea when his birthday was, so we celebrated the day he joined our family as “Calvin Dog Day” He had a weakness for strawberry ice cream so he always got some on that day. (There was a year he was the only one to get any of the strawberries my grandfather grew in his garden)
The Easter bunny has come and left, and spring break is now over here. Hopefully, that means warm weather is officially on the way, but I am not going to hold my breath. I am just happy that spring cleaning should be done for the year! Now if we can just keep things in order until fall cleaning.
This sketch gave me a chance to pull out a stamp set and play around with it. I love getting to do that! I also was thinking this a good guys card, but honestly, it has my favorite colors so it doesn’t necessarily have to be only a guys card.
Things started off so good with this card! I looked at the inspiration photo and realized that I had just used a stamp set that had a Queen Anne’s lace stamp, and looking through my paper I had the perfect vintage label paper. Then I started making the card…
This is a birthday card for one of my favorite wee gamers. I tried really hard to make the screen look like it had Super Mario on it.
