Tween Boy Birthday

I haven't set foot in my craft room since Friday, so I've got nothing new to share today. However, I was tidying up my iPhoto library and ran across some cards that I made a while back but never shared here. Today's is a card I made back in April using TCP's awesome mustache dies and companion set. This was for my oldest son's birthday, which was at the end of August. Not only did I forget to post it here, but I forgot to give it to him until a few days after his birthday. Oops!

The mustache is die-cut from cork using The Cat's Pajamas Mustaches CutUps die. The sentiment stamps are from TCP's The Mustache Set. The papers and that tag element are from Echo Park's Times & Seasons collection. The striped piece along the bottom was die-cut with TCP's Big Scallop CutUps die.  Last, I added some personalization with the number flags, which I cut from one of the Times & Seasons patterns. I kept it on the simple side to fit that difficult recipient - the tween boy. Seriously, does card-making get any harder? Good thing it's for one of my own -- he *has* to like it. Or pretend to, anyway :)

Oh, I love that big mustache~what a great card Amy! Yes, our children HAVE TO pretend to like our cards! I bet there was no pretending here, though, this is pretty cool stuff~

I don't think he would pretend anything here! The card is just gorgeous and superfunny :-))
