Birthday Boy Ian

I made todays card from a cute little digi from The Greeting Farm called Birthday Boy Ian which can be found here. Okay now how cute is he? I know so many of you have been in LOVE with TGF Anyas and Ians but it took me alittle while to catch on. Now that I have a few digis and I purchased a stamp I am in love with these cuties and I made todays card from a Farm Fresh Friday sketch. I started by printing my image onto PTI cardstock and coloring with my copics. I cut it out with a Label 1 nestie and mounted on a circle and scallop circle. My cardstock is Kiwi Kiss and Pacific Point and my dp is Muirfield from SU. I added some brads around the corners and tied a big fat bow and did a bunch of paper piercing and called it a day!! I hope I did this little guy justice. I have watched so many of you use them so beautifully.

So the big news in our house?? My daughter broke her toe. Her big toe on her left foot. They have her in a boot and on crutches because they do not want her to put presure on the foot. So it has been interesting getting her around. I have had to take her to and from school because they do not want her on the school bus and she needs an adult to take her up and down in the elevator at school because she cant walk the steps. Unfortunately we are heading to the Poconos this weekend for a mini vacation and there is a huge indoor water park there that she will not be able to enjoy this year with her friends. I am bringing a load of crafts to keep her busy while the other kids are busy with activities she cannot participate in. I told her she can start making some holiday presents.

So that is our excitement. Hope all is well with you. Thanks so much for stopping by.
