DUUUUUDE! Happy B-day!

Today's project was a combined effort...my 14 1/2 year old son, Cordell did some artwork on this card, because it's for his best friend's birthday today. They both are REEEEALLY into sk8ing, so I figured I'd let Cordell, well, BE Cordell! As you can see, he's already perfected his "artist's signature," complete with the LRG logo "tree" underneath...Some of his "tagging." Hey! At least the boy is doing it on paper & not walls, train cars, or signs like other boys that are bored out of their trees this summer! *LOL*
And of course no birthday is complete without balloons. Okay, it's a PSYCHO balloon, but it's still a balloon! {OW! I took a poke in the ribs for that one! *ROFL*}
A look at the entire inside of the card...Gotta say, I'm pretty proud of him. He got a little of Mom's artistic side & not everything from their father. (I was beginning to worry there for a bit!) He & his brother, Devin, are always doodling in altered journals that I make for them (like I said, it's better than paint cans and someone else's fence or walls!). Cordell is into the graffiti & sk8t logos, Devin draws anime' and manga art. Not sure WHAT little Aidan is going to do, but he's starting to ask for art journals now too! *LOL*

And here's my contribution to the card project...wheat-colored 5x7 base by K&Co, "skate collage" paper from Karen Foster Designs (just 10 minutes down the road from me in Centerville, UT!), & "sports extreme" stickers from Christine Adolph for Creative Imaginations. Skateboarding paper & embellies are NOT easy to find, lemme tell ya, so when I found these, I bought multiples!

Finished with a $10 bill tucked inside & we're good ta go! *LOL* Thanks for stopping by & have a great rest of your day!!
