Happy Birthday, Drew!



Today is my wonderful (the BEST) husband's birthday! We are so blessed to have him as the head of our family, and we hope he has the best day in the world!


This card is based off of one of Betsy Veldman's sketches in the Go-To-Sketches issue of Paper Crafts Magazine. Loved this one. The patterned paper is BG Green at Heart, kraft cardstock and buttons are all PTI, and the rub-on sentiment (isn't that the cutest??) is Basic Grey. The buttons were tied together and then onto the card using Natural Burlap String.


What birthday plans do we have for today? Well, sadly, Drew must work today. We may bring him lunch, though. And Scallops and Pasta for dinner..... and this heavenly (sinful?) Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake. Yep, gonna be a YUMMY day!!


Here is Cameron's card for his daddy:



And Katy's:


Anyone who knows Katy will not be surprised that nearly EVERTHING on this card is a shade of pink. Ha. ;)
POST SOME BIRTHDAY WISHES FOR DREW ON THIS POST! I WILL CHOOSE ONE WINNER ON FRIDAY TO RECEIVE SOME PAPER CRAFTING GOODNESS FROM LIMELIGHT IN THEIR MAILBOX!! (Speaking of which, be sure to check out all of the GREAT SALES at Limelight now!)

What a fine array of cards. Really like yours, and the buttons. Buttons on a masculine card is a great idea. And your son did a great job stacking the cake and love the pink on your daughters! Happy Birthday to your husband, hope he enjoys the dinner!
