Happy Birthday - Tree, Dog and Cat

Here is a card I made for my friends son who turned '9' last Wednesday.  My friend was telling me how her son was saying he really liked my cards.....I thought she was being very polite. :-)  When I gave her son the card and pressie it was the card that was opened first and he just loved it.  He thought it was very funny and went back to looking at it after he had opened his present.  Yes, I am still smiling. What better praise is there than a nine year old boy admiring your card. :-)

I started with a white BE card and then layered it with Stampin Up Taken with Teal.  Found this wonderful paper in my stash that has come from a magazine at some stage. Printed out the greeting on the computer and used my new punches from Stamping Up - oval and scalloped edged oval.  Finished with some brown crossgrain ribbon.  The image is so much fun....that cat is such a tease.  It is from Michelle's Scrapbooking & More and is a Pixie Cottage image called 'Neh Neh Neh'.  Very apt name.

I am sharing this over at Craftmad for our Weekly Inspiration challenge - TREE's
(Remember this months prize is 4 Digital Images from Stamping Dragon Designs and a $15 voucher from Papertry Ink.

  5. I love this card. You must know my cat.LOL That is high praise from the 9 year old. I would be smiling for a week!!!! Thanks for the visit. I too hate snakes because they always show up and surprise me. At least I can see the darn bear coming. The cougar gets up in the trees so that's a little iffy. Ah gardening in the Cascades does have its challenges.
