Birthday wishes for a nephew!

Happy mid-week everyone~
Here is a birthday card I made for a nephew, he loves airplanes so instead of a digi I actually had to use a stamp for this card.
Unfortunately everything went a bit awkward since Sunday and I hope it ends up being better for the rest of the week.  Hubby's truck broke down and went into the repair shop, because he wakes up wee mornings for work his being using my car....My printer went ka-pute on me yesterday morning, I guess having it for 10 plus years it finally gave up. So today my cousins coming to get me so I can go pick up a new printer....
Anyhow here is my card:

Dies - Die-Namics (stars & clouds) love to mask my clouds in...
Stamp - Oriental Trading (For the Boyz)
Sentiment - Hero Arts
Embossing folder -Quic Kutz
Markers - Spectrum Noir


  1. This is so cute, great clouds.

  2. Oh Shirl, you have gremlins in your house! They are breaking all your stuff! That is what my dad used to say when thing would all start breaking at once. My father was stationed in the Philippines during the war and the native people there believed in them. When things would start to break around our house, my dad would get out the "big rock" a geode and place it in middle of the house(gremlins hate geodes) and then he would put a bowl of fruit outside (to lure the gremlins out). Then he would slam the door and we would all yell "stay out gremlins" hey I don't know if it worked or not, but we didn't have very many broken things for a family of 14 kids and it sure was fun!

  3. TOTALLY Cute!!Love the stitching around the planes,CUTE!
    Hope you get a great deal on the printer.
    Have a wonderful day,

  4. Neat card! Love the little airplanes and the fun clouds in the background. Hopefully that's the last of the mishaps and things will get better for you now.
