Interuption on the blog!

Oh my GOSH, over at Studio L3 Linda is having people make tim a birthday card. That is this weeks challenge. Not so hard, right?
So when I heard that it was tim's birthday on the 7th, I had to get right on this! Some things are just more important. So I dropped everything....even the article I had hinted to. Still shhhhh!
Here it is........tim's birthday card!
(I hope he likes it)......(is it worthy of the master?)
I covered the paper with a vinyl, did some stitching, staples and what I am most excited about....the
 letters I did. (the little bottle is cute)
Closer look at the letters. They were metal letters that I painted, then put on some Rock Candy Distress Crackle and then I distress inked and then.....I embossed them!
I HEART them! I really do!
Another close up
Oh and just had to show you the letters again. LOVE!
Inside is a simple note to tim!
Happy Birthday big guy!

I should have waited to take pictures in natural light, like tomorrow, but I was to excited!
