Alligator Birthday


Hi there! I hope your weekend is off to a great start! I have NOWHERE to go today -- that never happens anymore!! Three of our four children are at friends' houses, so Chris and I are just catching up with things around the house. And, of course, I'm sneaking in a little stamping and blogging! ;)

Here's a card I made for my friend's son's birthday. I was feeling a little mojo-less, and I needed to come up with something quick, so I went back to my old cards for inspiration. I liked this card I made so much that I just flipped the sketch and used a different stamp! I also used a different pattern from the same Summer Picnic paper -- this one has more "boy" colors in it!
There's not much to explain -- it's just a simple and fun birthday card! I hope you like it! If your mojo is on vacation, try taking a look at an old card and switching it up -- it may give you some inspiration! Thanks for stopping by -- have a great day! :)

Stamps: Wild About You, Hugs & Wishes Ink: Old Olive, Basic Black, Bashful Blue Cardstock: Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White Paper: Summer Picnic Other: Old Olive 7/8" grosgrain, Bashful blue striped grosgrain, Old Olive brads, sponge, dimensionals
