Epic Birthday! (Mojo Monday sketch 194)

I love this card!  I made it for Cole for his upcoming 11th birthday (on August 3rd).  I know he'll love it. 

The lucky little fart gets to go away for 5 weeks this summer with his cousins (and Aunt & Uncle) to Maui, Hawaii.  He doesn't really comprehend as to how lucky he is!  But that also means that he'll be away on his birthday, so he'll have to wait until he gets back home for his gifties.  :)

I fell in love with this week's sketch on the Mojo Monday blog and created my card from memory of what the sketch looked like.  I took a little liberty to make it my own, I guess, but overall, it looks pretty close.

Gosh, it feels so good to be able to create again...  I was finally able to pull out an order of stuff from Papertrey Ink that I've had for close to 2 months now.

If you have the time, take advantage and go play with your paper and stamps.  It's such great therapy!

Happy creating!  :)
