Hey all!!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend - I tell ya, it flew by! Yesterday was my son's 16th birthday - I can't believe it!!! So, we had a whole weekend of birthday festitivites! On Friday night all his buddies spent the night so that they could leave early Saturday for a day at Six Flags!! They had a wonderful time, but they came home exhausted, lol!! Tony went with them as I had Club that day and well, I don't ride anything anyway so it was a nice day for the boys. Yesterday we did family things together - I baked him a double decker chocolate cake, and we took him to dinner at Olive Garden (his choice). Then, we came home and he opened his family gifts which he loved and then we watched movies. It was a nice day with just us although I wish my oldest son could have been home!!! I think he had a really nice birthday - he seemed pretty happy anyway, lol!!! So, I wanted to share the card I made for Tyler - he is an avid snowboarder so I made him a card with the Extreme Snowboarding stamp, which I think is cool because it is a shadow stamp! I also used the Extreme Elements stamp set - I just think they go together really well! I used lots of different inks on this card, and I like how the combination turned out! I popped the snowboarder up on dimensionals after I versamarked it, then covered it in clear powder and heat set it to give it a nice shine! Since this card was going to my son, I did the inside as well!
