Happy Birthday Dear Nephew!!!

My DH has a lot of nieces and nephews (6!) on his side of the family. I have one! And today is his birthday. He turned 7! He is 15 months older than my oldest and it truly is fun to see my 2 and him together playing! He lives only 20 miles away so we're lucky that we get to see him pretty often.

Do you remember 7? I have memories from before age 7 but 7 is about when they become solid. I remember A LOT of year 7... second grade.... oh yeah!

Anyway, I made up a card to mail to him even though I saw him yesterday. Little kids LOVE to get fun mail (don't we all ;)?) so I thought mailing it would make his birthday last longer! Of course, I didn't mail it until yesterday.... uh oh.... oh well, it will make his birthday last longer this way. Right?

Here's another card that makes me LOVE A Muse... think simple, think A Muse..... My life these days are pretty busy...

The first two weeks of March every year are my 2nd busiest time of the year after the week of Halloween. Yeah sure, Christmas is a busy time but it's not packed in quite like these two weeks are. Three family birthdays in 5 days, the Spring Break around here, then it's Easter... and BAM! the month is done. GOOD GOLLY!!!

Back to the card.... My nephew loves horses so I thought maybe he'd like Billy the Kid. The Balloon Bouquet fit in his hand, too. Voila! Love that! I colored in the balloons with my Copics and Spicas and then covered them with diamond glaze.

Happy Birthday dear nephew!

I got you beat in the niece/nephew dept. We have 16 nieces/nephews on DH's side of the family and 2 great nieces/nephews with 2 more on the way. One of our nephews had a b-day on Sunday, too, 'cept he turned 9. I love your card...it's too cute. Colors just really pop!
