Nascar Challenge and The February Birthday Party




Good morning everyone!!! It's Sunday morning and all is well....today is the Daytona 500 race and my fellow Dirty Dozen friends Denise (peanutbee) and Dawn (TreasureOiler) who are the biggest racing fans evah, thought it would be fun to make some racing themed cards. They have invited us all to play, too!! If you upload to SCS, be sure to add Nascar1 to the key words so they can find your cards.
I used two retired SU sets, At the Races and To the Finish...stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with copics. I had to place tape over the numbers on the car stamp so I could add Jeff Gordon's number 24 by cutting it out of the EK Success dp. I stamped an extra set of wheel rims, colored them with a metalic silver pen and popped them up on dimensionals. The cardstock is Prismatics Classic Yellow and Twilight Dark. My DS Steve is Jeff Gordon's biggest fan so this card will be saved for his birthday in May. Thanks for the great challenge girlfriends!!



We had our February Birthday party yesterday. Since our family has grown by leaps and bounds, we combine all the birthdays
and anniversarys into a monthly get together. This month was DGS month with
Ryan 8, Gabe 2, and Cody 6. Silly old Grandma forgot to buy candles for the cupcakes DD Holly made so we had to improvise!! I dug out a box of tapered candles, stuck them in the cupcakes and tadaa....kinda wierd but the boys loved it!!








I had to add this picutre of our DGD Caitlyn...she is such a cutie pie and my, oh my, sooo busy!! Here she is playing hide and seek with her Grandpa.
Thanks for visiting today and I hope your Sunday is wonderful!!

Great Nascar card!! You did a great job on it, it looks like it'll roll right off the paper!

Super cute birthday party, the little guys are so sweet. Good thing you're fast on your feet with those candles, I was actually thinking they looked kinda cool to be so tall!

I'm so glad you played along! I totally LOVE your card...and my daughter is going to love it when she sees it too!!

That's funny about the tapered candles. Wanna know what I did this year??....I accidently (I swear) bought *trick candles* for our 4-year-old's birthday party. Poor thing couldn't figure out why the candles wouldn't blow out. I know..baaaaad mommy! Everyone else got a kick out of it though. They were teasing that I did it on purpose.

Your grandkids are cuties!!
