I played along with the Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge this morning, and came up with a birthday card for my son's friend at the same time.
He has grown accustomed to making special requests for birthday cards, which is something I love. They can't imagine buying a card from a store when Mom is right here to make a special one! What he really wanted was for me to make a card with a minotaur on it. Honestly, I was stumped so he had to come up with a different idea. . .a goat with facial hair, hehe. I managed to do it, but now I know a way to make the minotaur. I'll be saving that for his birthday ;)

Joann's was having a super sale on their papercrafting section, and I happened to have a coupon for an extra 25% off my purchase for my birthday month. I ended up getting a bunch of goodies for 75% off! I have a few new Distress Inks along with the Craft Mat (so stoked about that), so I made my background. It is such a fun way to make a background, and I am sort of addicted so this won't be the last time you see that watercolored background :D
I better get the kids up and start school. Thanks for stopping in this morning!
