OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop 2014 and Dinosaur Birthday Card

Welcome to the OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop! To start at the beginning of the hop from the OWH blog, please click here or on the banner below.

For the blog hop today, I made a birthday card for my little brother.  He is turning 7 in June and loves dinosaurs!  I thought this would be just perfect for him.  I know dinosaurs aren't really red and blue, but hey, I think it still came out cute.

My due date is just 2 weeks after his birthday, so unfortunately I won't be able to make it down to Portland for his actual birthday.  But I will see him shortly after, as my family will come up once I have my baby. 


For my card I used Bonus Sketch #29.


My family was just up here last weekend for my Seattle baby shower.  I'm not really sure why Michael isn't smiling in the pic, lol, but I guess I can't win them all!


 I hope you all have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day Weekend!

  21. Oh, that is beyond cute! Super coloring and I always color my dinosaurs because they're more fun that way. Especially since they're for kids. I'm usually not much for brads and buttons, but yours works so wonderfully, I can't imagine the card without them. Thanks for sharing your wonderful family picture. Hey, six people in a photo, one isn't going to be perfect. Hugs on the upcoming birth of your baby from down here on the South Sound.
