Birthday Wishes!

Happy Friday! I am so looking forward to the weekend. I am now counting down the days until I go back to work (I work in the school system). This summer has flown by. Tomorrow I am getting together with my stamping friends for a day of creating and laughing. We have so much fun and do get some cards or scrap booking done before we call it a night! It will be a great way to finish off the summer.

My son's 26Th birthday was yesterday. If anyone saw an earlier post I made him a card with the Kenny K hockey player on it. I really liked the card but my DH thought it should be a goalie not a skater because Bryan never played anything but goal. I wasn't going to make another card until I saw these new images from Kenny K. Bryan is always talking about girls being more trouble that there worth when they want something serious from him. His business is the only thing that gets most of his attention and it drives the girls crazy! I decided to make him this birthday card so he could have a hot girl that wasn't going to give him any complaining. He was shocked when he opened it because it wasn't a "MOM" card and then thanked me for getting him Pamela Anderson for his birthday! You can't tell from the pic but the turquoise stripes are shiny to add lots of pizazz to the card! It is a card that won't be forgotten!

Here are some fantastic challenges that fit this card

Kenny K's Krafty Girlz Challenge #6-This week the challenge is "Bold and Bright". This card is definitely that though it is card to capture it in the picure.
Anything Goes Challenge Week 12-The challenge this week is to use "3 Layers on your card". I have at least 3 of them!
Stamp Something Challenge-This week the challenge is "Aug. Digi Day". I used a Kenny K Digi and the car is one I forgot the name.
Simple Doodles Challenge #24-"Come Let's Celebrate" is the challenge this week. I am using a B'Day as my celebration!
Creative Belli Challenge 98-This challenge wants us to use something that is "Round and Metal" on our creation. I used brads that that look like screws.
Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 27-"It's Our Birthday!" is the challenge. They would like us to create a B'Day card for this challenge.
Paper Romance Challenge #12-"Metal Heads" is the challenge this week. Use a metal embellishment on your creation. I used the metal screw brads!
Digital Tuesday Challenge #72-"Use Your Scraps" is the challenge! This was a great challenge because is you took off the layers of this card you would see that the blue dotted paper has been used to punch some flowers. I love this Bo Bunny DP so I didn't throw it out in case I needed a little piece. I didn't think my son would be taking the card apart so he wouldn't notice the holes in the paper!
Creative Inspirations Challenge #74-This challenge is the fantastic "Sketch" that I used on my card.
Digi Doodles Shop's Beast Challenge-"Anything, I Say Anything Goes" is the challenge. This is so fun to see what everyone creates!
Stamps R Us Challenge #2-This challenge blog is a new one for me! They would like us to make an male inspired creation.!
Stampin' For The Weekend Challenge 45-This week their challenge is the popular and fun "Anything Goes". Always a fan favorite!
