Grandson's 6th Birthday!

Today is a very special day in our family because it is the birthday of my daughter Susan and her her youngest child and only son, Roman. I made this card for him because his loves to ride his bike when the ground isn't covered with snow. With all the snow we have had this winter he, Ellie and the neighbor kids have had a ball sledding, building snow forts with Dad and playing in the snow. This has been great for all the family since they haven't lived in many places where there is much or any snow...storing up snow fun for the next tour of duty for Sam which may be in a warmer climate.

For this card I chose Stampin'Up Brilliant Blue cs for the base and Green Galore for the accent and bike color (close to the acutual color as I could get). The stamp set is SU Just Riding, perfect for a growing boy! The helmut is Brilliant Blue with Silver Stickles for accent. I also used Stickles to give the bike a metalic paint look. The sentiment if from SU Birthday Whimsy. The patterned paper is from the Basic Grey Cupcake paper pack and shows bikes of all colors.

I am hoping to get back to posting regularly, visiting blogs and keeping up with all of you my friends. I have a lot of birthdays in the next few months to make cards for and I don't have enough in my 'already made' boxes which means I have to get busy. Luckily I have a lovely card already for Sue and didn't have to start from scratch.

Take care and keep stamping!
