Happy Birthday Jonathan

Our nephew Jonathan will be 12 tomorrow and I finally got around to making a card for him. I'll get it in today's mail and hopefully he'll have it when he gets home from school tomorrow!

I had the image already colored and hopefully it won't be too "girly" for him. Like many of you, I have trouble with masculine cards - and he's also at that "tween" age, but what kind of card do you make for a "tween" boy? I'm sure he won't really care about anything except the check inside!

It's hard to see in the picture, but the image/sentiment is raised on pop dots. The cuttlebugged layer is a copper paper, between text weight and cardstock weight and I have no clue where I got it, like a lot of the stamping stuff I have!

Need your help - and Blog Candy!

Stan and I bought a new red (formally called Camelia Red Pearl and gorgeous!) 2009 Subaru Forester. We'd like to put "vanity" or personalized license plates on it. I'd like you to help me with that. The winner will receive a goodie box of stamps and supplies from me, which will contain at least one set of Stampin Up stamps.

The Fine Print:
  • Words/phrases on license plates are limited to only 7 letters
  • I'd like something reflecting (in order of preference) the color and/or model of the car, my occupation (medical transcriptionist), or my hobby (rubberstamping)
  • Nothing obscene
  • Leave your suggestion along with a valid email address in the comments section on my blog - emails to my personal email address will not be considered
  • Contest ends at midnight Mountain Daylight Time Tuesday, April 7, 2009

Good luck, and thanks for helping!
