MMSC12 Birthday Beach Hedgie for my Baby's Birthday : ) 4 Challenges







Lots of B's in that title : ) This card was made for the MMSC12 challenge (and a few other challenges :)) and for my youngest's 8th birthday. I loved making this card for him, because he has from the very beginning been my biggest fan. He tells me every single card that I make is beautiful and wants to have every one of them for his own. That boy is one day going to make some lucky lady very happy!! So, anyway, I wanted to make this special for him. His birthday was today, July 27th, and he so LOVES the water, the beach and summer. The cute hedgie with the present just tops it off. I was a little leary of putting the yellow bow on there, but he didn't say anything, so I don't think it bothers him at all.
I think I am at the end of my beach cards for the summer. I have used up most of my images, and will have to wait until next summer for some more. I have had lots of fun making sand on my cards and putting seashells all over them. Are you ready for your shot at this week's challenge? Go ahead, give it a try. Once you get started, you will have so much fun. I look forward to seeing your entries. Please keep following the MMSC challenges. There are some really fun and exciting things coming up that you won't want to miss!
Thanks for stopping by, and let me know what you think of my card.
Have a great week!
