Challenges & Challenges

What a wonderful week before Christmas that we have had here at home! All of the family together, chatting about our up and coming trip, early Christmas with my parents...all the while working on a birthday card for our here is the challenge from Stamping 411

Saturday Sketch Challenge 182

As soon as I saw this, I knew I would created his card with this in mind ~ and then ~ I saw the color challenge from Stacey's Stamping Stage and the 
Curtain Call Color Challenge: {ACT 61}

So here is my card for our son's 29th birthday

I was having real issues with saving my cropped picture, not sure why I was unable to import my edited version, so sorry for the 'bad' picture....and now this morning it worked, so I actually changed my original snap of this card!

Thank you so much for stopping by during this busy season of celebration! This will more than likely be my last post of the year ~ have a wonderful and blessed Christmas Season!
And all the best in the New Year!

For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. 
Isaiah 9:6

  2. Great job - love this very masculine card!

  3. Love this card for your son Denise (and he will too). I love all the layering and texture. These really are great colours for a masculine card aren't they? Maybe I should consider using them for my son's card too:)

  4. This is a perfect card for your son.....a good way to use those colors in a non-Christmas theme!!! Have a blessed Christmas, Denise!
