Happy Birthday, Russ!!

   It is my husband's birthday today... We celebrated it last night with a movie and dinner out with family. We had a wicked good time. The movie was "Sherlock Homes- Game of Shadow". We loved it.. Full of intrigue and surprises. We had dinner at Longhorn.. Yummy!!
Football addict...
   Today Russ gets to watch football all day.. He loves that, too. So I made him an appropriate card. Here it is:
I wish I could say that I drew the football player, but no I didn't.. I "googled" it and cut it out after I had blown it up a bit. Then I glued it to black cardstock. I typed in the sentiment and used my Spellbinders square die cut.
   I got the idea for this card from a card I saw on Splitcoast. Here is the linkFootball card
She did a great job on her card and I loved the stadium full of people, so I did the same  thing on the inside of this card.

Aren't they all cute!!!??

Pretty swirl...
   Lately I've taken to decorating the envelope, too. I just purchased this steel die cut from Stamped Designs in Dover, N.H. and wanted to use it on Russ's envelope. It's from Memory Box and I love it. I put a little glitter on it to give it a snowy effect.
   He got his card this morning and really liked it. I had fun using my thumb to make all the fans in the stadium and giving them faces. Thumbprint people are so cute.
   My Christmas shopping is done except for stocking stuffers. I think I will finish that this week at Reny's and Target. Happy Shopping!!
