Happy Birthday Hunter



Happy Labor Day everyone. Little known fact about me - I actually had my youngest daughter on Labor Day in 1974. It wasn't too much "Labor" since I delivered her two hours after I got to the hospital. Her birthday will be this next Saturday. Time flies fast - but she has turned into a wonderful young lady.
Had great fun yesterday - had a cousin reunion - I have 30 some first cousins - lots of us were there - and it was fun to see everyone. Out of the original 11 sisters and brothers (our parents) we have two sisters still alive (one celebrated her 100th birthday this year) and 4 surviving spouses. My youngest brother is the youngest grandchild and has the youngest great grandchild. Lots of good food. I have lots of pasta salad left if anyone wants to bring a bowl over and get some - please do. I am calling the neighbors - Amy said they liked that type of pasta salad - hopefully Anna's family does too.
September is full of birthdays - I already feel behind. I actually do have Carrie's card made. Yeah - unless I make another one - we will see. Today's card is for Hunter - my little neighbor boy who always makes me smile - calls me Babawa. Hunter takes karate lessons - he also wrestles. That is why we have a karate boy card. I wanted to show you the inside also - I try to coordinate the inside with the other papers used on the front.
The card is based on the Bonus Sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You. I would insert the sketch - but not quite sure how to do that. Just jump over to 2 Sketches 4 You - you won't be disappointed - they have a new sketch every Monday - plus they have been adding a bonus sketch.
Karate boy - iron on transfer (for fabric) from Plaid - works great on paper
Rub on - Basic Grey
Paper - Bo Bunny (green boy is ironed to), Moxxie (argyle) , Stampin! Up (red),
Sweetwater (black)
Stars - Sizzix die cut
Computer generated sentiment
For got to say - this is a card that opens left to right - for this particular family - all their cards open that way - the first time I made someone in the family a card - I did it that way by mistake - so they gave me such a hard time about it - all their cards open that way now.
Enjoy the remainder of your Monday.
