Our son in law, Tim turned 40 on March 26th!
Thought he would enjoy an odometer Birthday card, more or less lol
I used a set by Recollections for the numbers which were stamped in Amalgam Black ink and heat embossed in Black Powder.  Each number was stamped on to a smaller square of card stock.  Then I trimmed the tops and bottoms to show movement, going from 39 to 40....in the blink of an eye lol
Many layers of black and red card stock.

Plus Penny and I did an original drawing of him for a Birthday Poster.





You can also see some of the 40 candles we drew LOL



Thanks for speeding by!

Manly Birthday Wishes

 Back Again!  (not sure why but my center alignment button is no longer working...weird!)

This has got to be the manliest manly man card I have ever made!

I am entering it in the following Challenges:


Simon Says Monday, Layer It.

Simon Says Wednesday, Happy Birthday.



I started with a Steam Punk Embossing Folder by Darice for my background.
Then I added paints and inks in golds and browns and 
black embossing powder to give it a metallic and aged look.
I found some Metal Sheets in my stash and added 
the same texture to it with the Embossing Folder.  
Adding the paints, inks and embossing powder to that, 
trimming it into 3 smaller panels.
In between I embossed a piece of Vellum for more layering.
The 3 panels were popped up on Foam Tape.




I added Tim Holtz metal gears and brads as accents, 
also inked and heat embossed with some powders.




Avery Elle Numbered Birthday Balloon dies, 
treated in the same manner as the metal accents.





Heavy Metal!





Gina K Designs Massive Messages stamp set.
Gold Embossing Powder.
Vellum.





Has some dimension and heft to it!
This, was of course, made for my Hubby Tom who celebrated his birthday on the 3rd!
He is the manliest manly man I know and love!  
Plus he just took me for our Vaccines this morning!


Thanks for stopping in!
