Retro Sketches196, PP276, FM238, Seize the Birthday

Happy New Year and all the best in the coming year ~ We seem to jump from one celebration to the next ~ and so here we go...time to celebrate Isaac who is turning 7 on the 28th ~ I love this young man, he is full of life, sweet and kind and has a wonderful sense of humour ~ Isaac loves anything Mario Brothers, so we purchased him a Mario Brothers Chess Set and it is such an wonderful gift, I can't wait to gift this to him ~ Happy Happy Day young man xoxo

I found these wonderful challenges that gave me my starting point, although I knew that it had to be a Mario card ~ what a perfect sketch from Retro Sketches ~ the PP276 is all about #'s, how perfect! ~ the Friday Mashup calls for a Super Hero...Mario and Lugii, aaahhhh yah!!! and it's a birthday card, so Seize the Birthday works for this as well ~ WOW!!!! thanks so much for these wonderful challenges ~ I love playing along when I have a chance! Happy New Year!!!
(for some strange reason, I was unable to pick up the link to the PP276??? not sure why)

and now to the card ~ I can't wait for him to see this card as well as his gift :-)

Here's our big 7 year old ~ big brother to Austin and Lucas ~ so blessed to call these boys our grandsons!
