Happy Birthday!

Today I'd like to share with you a birthday card I made for my brother-in-law.  We drove to Richmond yesterday so we could attend his "surprise" party, his girls had to tell him because he gets a little "grouchy" if you spring a surprise on him, and he already had a bizillion things planned for Saturday.

I totally fell in love with my Create with TLC design team mate's creation and I had to CASE this for my card!  Thank you Carla, you make the most gorgeous cards ever!  You can view Carla's card on her blog here.  I went to Mo's and purchased the image and I already had the sentiment from TLC.

card recipe:
My Mind's Eye design paper, SU and Georgia Pacific cardstock
Copic markers, distress inks, jute, burlap from The Funkie Junkie
Spellbinders dies

My card is just a tad different, but the idea still came from Carla.  I love the sentiment "Inside every older person is a younger person wondering what happened?"  I can certainly identify with this too!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.  Thanks for visiting, I love reading your comments and 
appreciate all your support!
