A Birthday card for ?

Happy Friday :)
I am so happy the weekend is here. I plan on going to our cottage and relaxing ALL weekend long.
I know we need to split some wood and pile it but that's minor.
Here is a birthday card I made for..not sure who yet.
Its Ashley's boyfriend, Tyler's, birthday this weekend, but I just don't think this is the type of card for him ;)

I coloured this cute CC Designs image with my Copics. I love those stamps....oh who am I kidding, I love all stamps ;)
 I stamped the bench on wood pattern paper and then shaded it with good ol' Copics.
I used the Martha Stewart deep edge punch for the lattice, I also coloured the bottom of the lattice to look like grass.
 I used a die to cut out the post for the sign, then fussy cut around the stamped Birthday greeting.
Onto My Day:
I stayed up until 3:00am working, I wanted to get the billing part done because I was planning to spend the day with my nephew and my sister. As we thought he was going to get his jaw done today.
Well as it turned out my sister had to go see a doctor first. Which turned out to be an orthodontist. I think the guy scammed her. The guy told her that Eric (my nephew) needed braces and his wisdom teeth pulled when he examined him in emergency.
Well that is what the appointment was for ($150.00 later).
I told her before she went that it was Bull----. You don't have to pay to get your sons jaw fixed.
But you do have to pay for any cosmetic work that needs to be done.

So hopefully the poor kid will get this done tomorrow. Sadly I won't be there for them though.

Hope you all enjoy your long weekend, if you get one.



  1. Good luck getting things figured out. I love that lattice work!

    Another beautiful card.

    I am off the weekend, but work Monday and Tuesday and then I am off to Washington, DC to attend a conference and a visit with my sister.
    Curtis is on the road with his dad north to Rossland, BC to visit his sister.

  4. Your card is so stinkin' cute! I do not have any copics yet but everytime I see your projects it makes me want to try some! I am going to try to be creative tomorrow as I have been down in my back all week! Uggh! Finally had to go to dr for meds.. Diagnois: pulled sciatic nerve hurts like hell!

  5. I love that card! Thanks for sharing it!

  6. Cute card.

    What does braces and wisdom teeth have to do with a broken jaw. I would think that they could discuss that at a different time after the jaw healed? Definitely a scam!
