The Challenge #71-- 80th Birthday

Just a quick post this Tuesday, using The Challenge's sketch:

I haven't played along with any of Lesley's challenges for a while, I thought it was about time!  My uncle Kenny is turning 80 years old next week; he is the last sibling on my mom's side, so he's kind of special to us!  So I used Lesley's sketch for his card.  It's very similar to the Paper Players sketch from a couple weeks ago and I used Guy Greetings for it as well:

I used some retired DSP from SU and stamped the image in Basic Gray and the words in Island Indigo.  This set is so awesome because it has "UNCLE" in it!  Woohoo!

I added an ZigZag embossed panel of Smoky Slate and a wee bit of Baker's Twine, and then added some diecuts on the inside:

I cut apart my birthday sentiment to make it easier to stamp the words separately!  Thanks for visiting today!

Oh my, it has been an eventful last few days!  Yesterday morning, Cassidy pulled out her tooth, all by herself!  No tears, no whining....it was practically pushed out by the new tooth coming in!  Now the one next to it is a-wigglin'!  

Enjoy your day!
