holy shiitake!!

It's birthday time (almost) in our house again which means a fun card was made.  Being that this particular son is going to be 28 (WHAT?  I'm clearly not old enough to be the mama of a 28 year old!!)  I had to think of something not childish and something with humor (all my boys have a great sense of humor!)!  Enter in...the gnome...
 This uber cute and fun card is made with an SVG file called Birthday Gnomes at SVG Cutting Files, a cute little stamp from Birthday Candies 2 from Jaded Blossom and then inside is a mushroom from Jaded Blossom's Spring Dies and the sentiment is from their Gnomies Forever set.  The papers are from SU! and I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch 421 which is tall and skinny so this card is 3.5"x6".
Once I got past deciding which papers to use for the balloons this was a fun, straight forward card to make!  Today I start on a set of Christmas 'somethings' to donate to a silent auction for our local Search and Rescue team.  I am still trying to decide which way I'm going to go with it so check back soon to see at least some glimpses!
