Today is my brother's birthday. He had his midlife crisis several years ago and decided to get back into shape. Wish that was how I dealt with crisis! Have you noticed that card making does not expend near the amount of calories it should? Anywho, he completed his first Iron Man competition last year in Louisville, KY and this year it's Madison, WI. We all tease him now because he came home from Louisville with about every and anything that had the IM emblem on it: hat, shirt, phone cover... you get the picture. So I decided to make him an IM birthday card.
Not much to explain here. I will write the message inside with a white gel pen. Besides the circle, I cut everything pretty much free hand from my scraps. Does anyone else still use the Creative Memories circle and oval cutters from about ten years ago? I also use the small personal trimmer. These are the tools that launched me into the scrapbooking and now the card making world.
This card fits very nicely into the challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays this week.
