Masculine Birthday Candles and Pup

HOW long has it been?  Well I believe WAY too long since I've been around posting or visiting, life is busy, Spring is under way and my yard and garden need attention, plus we've had a few wonderful visitors from Colorado in a couple of rounds!  We can all relate to busy-ness....but let's get onto the card since I know that's what you popped in for.

Son-in-law #1 (numbered by joining the family) had a Birthday yesterday, and I made this little diddy in a flash since I didn't wanna go empty-handed to a party that I hosted!  We had a joint Birthday party this past weekend to celebrate a couple Birthdays but his first!  It's pretty self-explanatory...

Well onto card #2...  This one's for my Grandson who turns 6 today!!!  Unbelievable!  Such a character and I really wanted a card that matched his personality.  Here it is...

Thanks for your support, I really appreciate your stopping by and supporting me even though I'm not always the most "regular" at posting.  Hope to catch up with all of you soon!
