Birthday Buzzard Birthday Wishes-CP33

It seems like it's been ages since I updated my little ole ran away on me this past week. Landon started school on Monday and goes both Mon & Wed, I have a fitness class I attend both days while he is at school as well. I have also just started a photography course which is on Monday nights, busy Mondays I tell ya! My parents came out on Friday to pick the kiddos up for a sleepover while Lance and I went out for a fabulous dinner and then to see Lady Antebellum and Keith Urban in Calgary. It was an amazing concert!! We were lucky enough to have a wonderful sleep in on Saturday morning as well, my Mom and Dad brought the kiddos back around 1pm, so it was great. Now I have a wicked sinus headache and it's driving me nuts, hope it goes away soon!

Anyway, tomorrow (Monday) is my FIL's birthday and we are all going for supper so I thought I better get a card made for him. I used Sketch # 33 from the Card patterns blog for my layout (just added the sentiment circle).

I really love this fun High Hopes Birthday Buzzard for a man's card and so I went with him. I got this guys directly from High Hopes, but they only sell to wholesalers now, so you can always check Bunny Zoe's Crafts or Stamp and Create. If they do not currently have a HH image you are looking for, just shoot them an email, both gals are fabulous so I'm sure they'll hook you up.   Anyway, onto the rest of my card...I used some fun Chatterbox papers, ribbon from Taylored Expressions and I added some dimensional glaze (I used CTMH Liquid Glass) to the balloons and some glitter to the hat and ribbon/bow with Baby Blue Spica Glitter Pen. The sentiment is from SU and my funky watermark is also available in rubber.

I used this fun sentiment on the inside (sorry I forgot to take a pict) from River City Rubber Works.  My FIL has a pretty good sense of humor, so I think he'll get a kick out of it!

Anyway off I scoot tonight...tomorrow is a busy day!  Thank you for taking the time to visit!
