Later Sk8r Birthday Card



I'm a little behind in my card making due to my shoulder Surgery but I'm forcing myself to get caught up. 
Here is a card I made for my Grandson who just turned 16. I guess now he's more interested in driving then his skateboard!!!  Kids grow up too fast!!!

I used the CTMH Later Sk8r Workshop on the Go for the card.  The Happy Birthday is also CTMH and called Joyful Birthday.

Pinwheel - May SOTM



I hope all you mothers out there had a fabulous Mother's Day. Mine was wonderful. Nice quiet day. Scott and Tracy brought me some flowers for my garden, daughter Andrea had us down for dinner and hubby bought me a VitaMix blender since my NutriBullet bit the dust. Even got a call from #2 son!
Life is good!!!

Here is one of the three cards that my May hostess club is making. The prep of these cards was a little tricky since I'm only into the second week of my shoulder surgery and still don't have the use of my left arm. But, I'm right handed so all is well!!!

I used the May Stamp of the Month, Pinwheel, for this card. The sail of the boat is actually one of the pinwheels cut apart. The paper pack is called Surf's Up. The boat itself is a 1 1/4" circle punch cut in half  from the CTMH's National Scrapbook Month, Dream Pop paper pack that is on special this month only.  The paper I used is actually honey colored with a wood grain resist design on it. I sponged over the half circle with Honey Ink to give it a dimensional look. The Hemp Bakers Twine is from the Mini-Medley Wooden Accents collection.
