a happy birthday card

well, i meant to post this card hours ago...but then i lost power for 6 hours. that was NOT FUN. it was 106 here with the heat index. we were melting. ugh.

on to good things!! i made a card this morning (before melting!) for the sweet stamp shop's use what you have challenge! love that challenge! 

i used up some of my scraps...i have a few scraps...

i have a LOT of scraps. sigh.

anyway! :) my big little mann is turning 5 tomorrow!!!! so i had to make him a birthday card!! and he loves all things hockey - so that made this card pretty easy! :)

i actually used three stamp sets - alpha tabs (LOVE it), sports fever and scootin' by (only for the 'th' which i masked from the happy birthday sentiment ironically). 

first i added some black and white washi to the base of the card, then added the 'happy birthday' and the 5 (a super fun thicker set!). 

since he's still my little mann (always!!), i had to add an i love you to the front! i love those alpha tabs so much, and i thought a staple was 'manly' so there.

so that's it!
