Happy Birthday Hunter!!!!

Hello and Happy Friday Everyone! I Know you're all surprised to
see me posting on a FRIDAY!!! Well there are 2 reasons for this....

#1 - I won't be able to post next week due to my trip up North! I'm gonna
see my oldest son and get my new racks and things for the store.... It's
going to be a looong trip and has to be done in a very short & quick period
of time.... UGH! Not to excited about that really.... But it needs to get done.....
I have to close my Store on Monday because the place I'm getting my items
from is only open Monday thru Friday! Another UGH!!! But that's ok.... I got
my plan laid out (as I always do) :o) And hopefully I can get most of the items
I need for the store... Keeping fingers crossed.... Ok.... My eyes, toes, legs too! LOL

#2 - I want to wish my sweet little boy a very
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! Hunter turns 9 today and he's soooo
excited about it! They're soooo cute when there that young!
For his breakfast, he asked for Krispy Creme Donuts....
Now remember I don't live in a big city... I live in a really
small town..... Luckily we have a Maverik Gas Station and they
carry lots of things including "KRISPY CREME DONUTS"!!!
Thank goodness for that! LOL They're delivered fresh everyday
 so we got some yummy ones... :o) It's not a big selection or
anything but he was happy with his choice.... Oh... and Guess whats
for dinner???? MAVERIK's!!! Yesss.... they also make Fresh Hot items
like Hamburgers, Tacos, Pizza, etc.... Soooo he wants to go there for
dinner instead of me cook him a dinner! He's wayyy to funny!
He did ask me to make his cake.... So I still gotta do that....
But I thought I would post the card I made for him....

YUP! I'm breaking in the Imagine that I got back! :o)
I designed this card in CCR... Basically all I do
is design my Imagine cards in CCR, then I
 put the measurements in the machine directly
 from the design that I created, then I cut....
I don't use the CCR to cut the images out.... WHY?
Well... #1 it takes FOREVER for it to read and think
about what it needs to cut and #2 CCR is still not all
that great working with your Imagine... Sometimes
it works sometimes it doesn't! And I don't have time to play
around with it and waste a ton of paper... Which I have in the past...
#3 I borrowed my Everyday Pop Up Cartridge to someone and had
to use my Gypsy for the cake cut! LOL

Cartridges - Buccaneer Imagine Cartridge (Crab) Cut @ 3 1/2" (2x's)
(Happy Bday Matey) Cut @ 2 1/2" (2x's)
(Striped & Cross Bones Paper) Cut @ 4 1/2" (using George & Basic Shapes)
and flood filling with designs from the Buccaneer Cartridge
Everyday Pop Up - Cake Cut @ 2" (and Flood Filled with
designs from the Buccaneer Cartridge)
I  inked around the edges and I used
some Glossy Accents on the White of the Crabs eyes, Dots on
the cake, and the flames....
Used my WeRMemory Corner punch too

Yes.... I did the inside too! :o) Card stock is
Stampin' Up of course! And the strip
is a piece I cut off from the front of the card...
The Monkey & Shark were cut @ 1 1/2"
I used Stampin' Up Dimensionals to pop
everything up! I hope you guys like my card...
I hope Hunter does too.... I'm sure he will! I did make
another card for my older boys to give to him...
But I forgot to take a picture.... I'll post that
one next week when I get a minute!

 I hope to see everyone next week... And I hope
everyone has an AWESOME WEEKEND!!!

Happy Birthday, Hunter! I'm sure he liked his card, it's perfect for a "grown up" nine year old. Love his menu. Good luck with your trip. Be safe and enjoy your son.

What a fantastic card design Theresa! I love it! You would be so proud! My Imagine was printing and cutting all day! I hope to have some thing to post next week. She has been resting for a while now, but with all these cool things you have been sharing, I had to take her cover off and make her earn all that table space today! Hee! Hee! And... don't go there with Krispy Creme. I can never pass one up without getting a cream filled eclair! Thank God they are all the way on the other side of town and I never go over there. Hee! Hee! Happy B-Day Hunter!!!
