Happy Birthday Cullen!!

I know I won't have time to post tomorrow, so I wanted to wish my Bubbie a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I can't belive my baby is 11 already! Seems like yesterday we bought him his first full set of hockey gear and he fell asleep in it on the futon pictured behind him... he didn't care that it was September and about 80 degrees! He amazed me then with the way he skated on the ice and I'm just in complete awe now. He's about 3 in the picture above and the one below was taken in February. He has since gotten his hair cut and you can see his beautiful face once again. Here's the card I whipped up quick for him. It's been such a crazy month around here. You can just see in the bottom right hand corner that there is a star punched out and then popped on dimensionals. And, if you look in the next picture, you can see a red square under the pocket to hold the "green". I had originally intended this to be a glitter window star, but when I put the red glitter on the star, it looked more pink than red, so I added the red cardstock backer and I still wasn't satisfied, so I just popped the punched out star back on and liked that best. Besides, I know he won't care much about what's outside the card as much as what's inside the card. I don't mean to make him sound like a brat, but hey, he is 11 after all!

Thanks for stoppin by today and if you feel like it, leave a bday wish for Cullen - I'm sure he'd like to be "famous" for a day!
