Happy Birthday to my Uncle...

Today, August 10, is my Uncle's birthday.  Here is a card I made him.  This cute octopus came from the Birthday Bash cartridge. I used the Cuttlebug embossing folder and background stamp (and sentiment stamp) from Scrappy Mom's.  The card was created by using the Elegant Edges cartridge (welding a rectangle to one of the images via the Gypsy).  I also used the same cartridge to do the two mats in yellow and light blue.  I also threw some Stickles on there and google eyes and white gel stitching.... oh, and what else? Ah, yes...  Baker's twine from Scrappy Mom's.  Oh, one more thing-- the mat that the sentiment is on was cut using Fiskar's Deckle scissors.  

I hope he gets it in time.

Yesterday, I had the day off from work and took the dogs to a local park.  Here is a photo of them at the man-made pond.

And here they are looking at a crane.



  1. Awww! Cute b'day card! Love the octopus and his gifts.
    Your dogs are sitting there so patiently, no attempt to chase the crane? Brodo Baggins would be in there with me flying on a lead behind him! LOL!

  2. What good pups to sit and watch instead of chasing the crane. Sweet card for your Uncle and may he have a happy birthday.

  3. First - your card is adorable! Your uncle is a lucky dude.

    Your dogs are being so good, looking at that crane! Kodi would be chompin' at the bit to go play with it! (P.S. his stuffed toys you got for him are still in one piece, and he still loves them! Broke the squeaker on one of them - finally - but the other still squeaks....that is the LONGEST any of his squeaker toys have lasted!)
