Happy Birthday, Mikes!

Happy Sunday, everyone!

I got home from camping around 1 and decided to try to fit in a card before we are to go have dinner with some friends.  Since school started this week, I had absolutely no time to craft and I was jonesin' to make somethingggggggggg...........anythingggggggggggg!!!

Well, I saw 2 challenges that could go together and I set to it.  Got the pictures taken, this blog post written and went to submit it and was late by about an hour.  :-( 

My husband's and my father's birthdays are both on 9-11, so I had to get working on those cards and the one below is for my Mikes, who I am still "nuts" about!

Since Mike is a "nature" guy, I couldn't pass up this stamp set from PTI called Autumn Acorns.  I even bought it mainly for this sentiment!

I mixed a few companies and sentiments for this inside.......but, it worked perfectly.

Here were the challenges I was hoping to enter it in:
The Colour Que #100 Color Challenge (which you could choose ANY of their past combinations and I chose #88) and the Clean & Simple #155 Sketch Challenge:

Materials Used (All PTI, unless otherwise noted):
Autumn Acorns stamp set and dies
Birthday Bash Sentiments stamp set (inside)
Verve - All About You stamp set
Woodgrain impression plate
Basic Grey patterned paper - Indian Summer
Kraft, Rustic Cream and Vintage Cream cardstock
Gina K. - Brown saddle stitch ribbon
VersaFine ink - Vintage Sepia and Crimson Red
Dark Chocolate ink

Thanks for stopping by!

So glad you are still "nuts" about your Mike. This is such a cute card and I am sure both of the Mike's will enjoy the heartfelt cards you make for them!

And having a 9/11 birthday myself...
it's such a horrible day to celebrate and I always feel guilty about it...
so please express to them both from another 9/11 birthday'er "Happy Birthday...once upon a time it was a great day to celebrate".
