Early birthday...

Happy Monday friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Our youngest son is turning 18 next month but we gave him his gift yesterday so a bit early.  Why you may ask?  Well, this son pretty much loves anything Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons so I did a little search (gotta love Google don't ya?) and found that the theater presentation of Jersey Boys was going to be in Seattle this month so hubby and I decided we would take him to The Paramount Theater to see the show but first would be brunch at the Space Needle (which we have done before but is a big treat!) all for his 18th birthday!  This was all to be a surprise so we conspired with our son's employer to get him the day off, informed him the night before that he was to be up, fully dressed (dress pants, button down collared shirt, and tie) and ready to go by 8 a.m. on Sunday.  On the way to the Space Needle we gave him this card with the tickets for the show inside:
Like many soon to be 18 year old boys our son also likes to play video games.  He also loves the Green Bay Packers and the Wisconsin Badgers so I colored the images with those colors and, honestly, it represents him well though he does not skateboard.  :)  For this card I followed the CAS(E) this sketch #163 for this week.  This stretches the sketch a bit AND it stretched me quite a bit but I really love the way it came out!  The image and eat, sleep, game! sentiment are from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps but, unfortunately, they are no longer available.  The 'happy birthday' sentiment is from Jaded Blossom as are the star dies. 

I'll be back later this week to share photos of the day!
