Happy Birthday, Patty and Michael

On Sunday, my brother-in-law and sister-in-law (twins) celebrated their birthdays. So I made them each birthday cards that really speak who they are and I think they both loved them. Michael is a real outdoorsman, so I used my watercolor pencils and Angler SU! stamp set to make his card. Patty is a beautician, so I used a Bella stamp and Copics for her card. On the inside of Michael's I hand wrote, "I hope you catch your limit of fun on your birthday". On the inside of Patty's I stamped a Bella sentiment that says "Hope your birthday is just your style" or something like that.

We had breakfast at Cracker Barrel. Connor was telling Patty's step mom, Georgia about his new puppy, Odie. He told her he loves to walk him around the house like a wheelbarrow (holding his back legs) so he can see Odie's butt. I thought I was gonna die! LOL!! Boys. Sheesh.

Hey, Tree!

Your cards are great- you always put so much work and talent into your projects! The pic and comments about Connor crack me up. Yep, only a boy!
