Skater Dude Birthday!

Wow! I finally have internet again! 5 days without pretty much did me in. Anyhoo, the challenge over at the Outlawz - Saturday Paper a la Mode Challenge this week is to use something old that you have never used before. How fun! We got to dig into our stashes for this one. Even though my posting on here is late, there is still time to join in. There are some fab prizes up for grabs, so please come check us out.

My card was given to my son for his birthday. The stamp and the skater boy stamp and the papers have been in my collection for at least a couple of years. The stamp is a bugaboo image from stampaliscious. The papers are so old that I am not sure anymore. I want to say My Mind's Eye. I also included some MFT dies that are getting to be my favourites and a CAS-ual Fridays stamp as well for the greeting. The image is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic Markers.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Cuttin and Stampin - Use your scraps (stars and red border are from my scrap bin)

Owl are You?

Back to School is the theme this week at Paper a la Mode Outlawz Challenge. Make sure you stop by to check out some awesome inspiration and don't forget to play along as there are always some fabulous prizes. My project is a set of lunch kit note cards. I have seen these a few times over the last month or so and thought it would be a fun project that I could use right away and surprise my kids with a sweet note from home!
