Skater Dude Birthday!

Wow! I finally have internet again! 5 days without pretty much did me in. Anyhoo, the challenge over at the Outlawz - Saturday Paper a la Mode Challenge this week is to use something old that you have never used before. How fun! We got to dig into our stashes for this one. Even though my posting on here is late, there is still time to join in. There are some fab prizes up for grabs, so please come check us out.

My card was given to my son for his birthday. The stamp and the skater boy stamp and the papers have been in my collection for at least a couple of years. The stamp is a bugaboo image from stampaliscious. The papers are so old that I am not sure anymore. I want to say My Mind's Eye. I also included some MFT dies that are getting to be my favourites and a CAS-ual Fridays stamp as well for the greeting. The image is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic Markers.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Make It Monday #159 - always anything goes
The Crafter's Cafe - Die Cuts / Punches
Cuttin and Stampin - Use your scraps (stars and red border are from my scrap bin)
Shopping Our Stash - Kid theme

Edited to add:

Woohoo - I made Top 3

Thanks for stopping by :)
