Dave's 40th Birthday!!

***If you are looking for my Birthday GiveAway, click HERE!***


Happy Friday Again Everyone!
This is my second post for the day, so make sure you scroll down to find my Flaunt It Fridays post!

Our friend Dave is celebrating his 40th birthday tomorrow and I made this card for him. I also noticed I could enter it in several challenges....Nice!! I love when that happens!! lol. Enjoy guys!!
This cute digi is from JustInkLined. I hadn't used digi's or copics in a while so it was fun making this.
The Happy Birthday stamp is from TPC Studios and the You Old dog is computer generated.
I used Christmas Cards to cut out the card and added just a little bit of Baker's twine.  I also used my Baby Geo Sizzix Texturz to do the embossing. I was trying really hard to hold back on the embellishing because it is for a 40 year old man. Have to keep it "manly".

So here are the challenges:
Crafty Creations - New Beginnings. Well I think hitting 40 is a new beginning (or new decade!)
MelJens Designs-Shaped card
Kaboodle Doodles - Use a digi
Claudia & Company - Use a shaped card
Craft Your Passion - Tie Something
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - Use your favorite anything. My favorite tool would be my      
                                                 Cricut Expression!
Stamp Something
Ok that's enough challenges for now!! lol

Thanks for coming by everyone. I truly enjoy reading all of your sweet, sweet comments!!
