Simple Birthday Card

So my husband is very protective of his electronics...as most men! So you can imagine the panic I felt when the children misplaced the remote! EEK!! I checked EVERYWHERE! I really thought that this was going to be the end of my marriage! One more ridiculous place to look.....Really? It can't be there?.....................

PHEW!!! Let's not tell the hubby....k? LOL

It's a wonderful day here in Mississauga and looking forward to taking the kiddies outside later but for now.....time to blog!
I really tried to challenge myself today. When I start a creation I think to myself " Oh yeah, this will take no time!" YEAH RIGHT ;) My little one was napping so I wanted to make a card in less then 20 minutes. I came close but it I changed my mind about 4 times which totaled my time to 35min.
So this is what I came up with. I think perfect for a boy or an acquaintance....(you know, the nice way of saying people you aren't close to?) hehehe

I'm also entering in the following challenges.........
