Happy 34th, Adam!

Hey there my lovelies! Well, well, well . . . are you having a fabulous week so far? I am delighted that my computer is back home . . . but a little disappointed that it's running so slowwwwwly! What's a person to do?! Oh . . . I know what . . . I think I'll go to the beach!
Hehehe! That's right . . . if Blogger behaves and posts this when I've scheduled it to post, then I'll be on my way to St. Maarten as you read this! Wheet whooooo! So . . . quick post for me today!

Yep . . . it's Thursday and it's time for another fun challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! This week's challenge theme is . . .


OK . . . so, this is embarrassing . . . I've been crazy busy trying to catch up on DT work and commissioned cards and preparing for vacay! Well, the other day I realized that my baby boy, Adam, is having a birthday this week . . . it was Tuesday, actually! It's a good thing that I'm always late sending cards . . . he won't even suspect that I nearly forgot his 34th birthday!! What a terrible mother, right?! Here's your card, Adam . . . it's in the mail . . . I swear! . . .
This little cutie is called "Byebye (boy)" and is available HERE in Mo's online store. Mo also has a "girl" version HERE.  They're both so stinkin' adorable, don'tcha think?! And, since it's almost fall here in the Northern hemisphere, I decided to use some gorgeous new fall DPs that I just ordered a few weeks ago! Such deliciously rich colors! Here's a bit of a side view . . .
 My card "recipe" . . .
Image printed on Cryogen "metallic" cardstock
Very Vanilla & Chocolate Chip cardstock: Stampin' Up
Chocolate Chip ribbon, metal buckle, and corduroy "button" brads: Stampin' Up
DPs: "Apple Cider" by Bo Bunny
Sentiments: Stampin' Up
Raffia ribbon: My stash
Deckled Oval Nestabilities die Spellbinders
Copic Sketch markers & colored pencils

I almost stroked out when I looked at this card in it's finished form. It's so, so . . . what's the word? "Masculine" . . . arrggh! Now, I ask you,  would a couple of flowers, pearls, and a bow hurt? I think NOT! hehehe! But, as you can see, I refrained from the elaborate embellies! Here's a peek at the inside . . .
And finally (I remembered it this time!) . . . the "artsy" view . . .
So, my lovelies, there ya go! Now, before I head off to play in the clear blue waters of the Carribbean, I have a small request . . . please be sure to pop on over to Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog HERE to check out the gorgeous projects created by my talented DT sisters! Then, please join the fun this week at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! Just remember to use one (or more) of Mo Manning's images (you can find them in Mo's online store HERE). Oooh . . . and don't forget . . . Mo is giving away one $5.00 voucher at her online stores for every 25 entries! (selected by Random.Org, of course).

Thanks so much for stopping by . . . and for leaving such sweet comments! I'll see you when I return . . . suntanned and at least 5 pounds heavier! Mwahhhh!
