U Rock birthday card and wish

I can't believe my oldest is almost a teen-ager! Only 1 more year:( Happy Birthday Bubby! I made him a card using the new extreme guitar image from Stampin' Up. The brick wall background is made using a stamp my friend Linda gave to me. She made this faux brick using left over rubber from her SU stamps! Cool, huh? As I posted the card, I realized that the brick probably would have looked nicer if I had stamped with a couple of shades of brown and red onto creamy caramel. That way the "grout" would have been darker. I also used my spritzer tool to give the brick some texture. We took the boys out to Applebees's last night as I have to work tonight. Cullen wanted to go there 'cuz he knew all the girls would sing to him:) If you see my boy on some sports field near you wish him a happy 12th!!

I love the brick wall! I'm gonna send my mom the link, as she just bought the guitar stamp. And I'll think about making my own brick wall. Janneke is playing with my spare rubber pieces as I type (dumping from one bucket to another and back again - why is that so much fun?).
