Happy Birthday Jamison!!!!

Hello everyone!! Today is a special day, today is my "babies" birthday. He turns 22 years old today. I cannot beleive I am the mother of a 22 year old, I hardly feel much older than that myself!!! BIG happy birthday to you Jam!! I am so very proud of you, you are a terrific, caring and much loved son!!!!

Today's card I made for his birthday. I had a heck of a time figuring out what kind of card to make him. He loves watching the Minnesota Twins and going to games so I decided to go with a baseball theme. My initial idea was quite different than what I ended up doing, thanks to the gallery on SCS! I saw this image (House Mouse, Happy Hoppers) and knew I had to use it!! I think this little bunny is too cute! I colored the image with my Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol and blending stumps. After coloring I had to figure out a layout, nothing was coming to me. I remembered I had not participated in the Wish RAK monthly contest for June yet so I decided to use the sketch challenge, I think it is a great sketch!!! The red and blue cardstock are from Archivers, the ribbon is CTMH Outdoor Denim and I also used twine. I have these great baseball bat brads from Eyelet Outlet. Unfortuneately I cut off the bottom of the dp and don't know who makes it. I must stop doing that!!
I hope you have a great day and don't forget about my blog candy!! Today is the last day to sign up, I will pick a winner after 10:00 pm central time or tomorrow morning!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
