Birthday #2

Well, as y'all may have seen in my previous post, the 16th was my mom's birthday.  Not only was it my mom's birthday, it was also my hubby's birthday, our friend's birthday and our niece's birthday.  Plus, next Monday is my MIL's birthday, and the 28th is another niece and our nephew's birthdays.  Whoo!  Looks like y'all will be seeing quite a few birthday cards from me the next week or so. LOL

Here's the second one I created: the one for my hubby.  His favorite color is purple, which makes me giggle, so I always try to use that color in his birthday cards.

I used this fabulous image I just got from Kenny K called Bodacious Bev.  I merged her with a keg of beer I found on public domain.  The image was colored with Copics.  The background paper is from my new kaisercraft paper.  The gems, ribbon and cross came from my stash.  The sentiment I printed out on word.  It has always made me laugh, and my hubby is a beer connoisseur, so it was perfect.

Because of the colors, it's hard to see the bow on the front of the card. I tried to lighten up the picture a bit more and did a closeup so you could see the bow better.  It's still a bit hard to see...but it's the best I could do.  Sorry!  =D

Well, thanks for stopping by!
