Happy Birthday Sean Toad!



Awww, it's our oldest son's 35th birthday - hard to believe! He likes to think of himself as a redneck (LOL) and did have a red-tick hound (Judge waiting at Rainbow bridge now for Sean some day), so with my winnings from the Digi Doodle Shop a couple of months ago I picked up these images, knowing they would be perfect for Sean (Toad-nickname from his father). The Bayou-looking house is Dustin Pike - thought it went perfect with the images from Digi Doodle Shop. Used my new sizzix label die, papers from Simple Stories-generations and made the sentiment up in photoshop. Using the special pad and tool, coved the images and popped them with 3-d tape. He's gonna get a big kick out of this one.

Have a Super Splendid week!
(((hugs)))

Such a fun card.

When you said your son was a redneck, I had to see where you are from. We are neighbors! I live in Oklahoma.

I hope your son enjoys his red neck card.

So stinkin' cute! Happy Birthday to your son. I love the images and are familiar with them all except the Dustin image. I put the bayou house in his search box and they said "nothing" like that. Do you remember the set or year? Anyhoooo, just darling. Thanks for sharing with us at Catch The Bug.
