This has just not been my week.  It all started off great, everything was ahead of schedule.  The guys were coming to start the insulation {never came}, my posts were ahead and I had more time to create {never happened} Madeline had beautiful long hair {all gone now}  So, my plans changed a bit.   What's done is done, moving on and looking ahead. 

Last weekend I was able to make a few more cards to add to the box.   I have a box I try to keep full of random cards for any occasion. Things seem to happen at anytime and I may not always have the time to make a card, so this helps.  

Mason was making some things while I worked, so I thought I'd make a boys birthday card.

I just love how this turned out!!
This is an A2 card
Core'dinations and DCWV papers
I have a blue card matted with black and then the patterned paper on top
I tore some brown cardstock, inked the edges and then crumbled it up in my hands to make this look like a dirty old treasure map
The skull cut is from Life's A Party {3"}, inked all over to make a little dirty
Sentiment is from SU!

I popped up the map and the skull for some dimension.

Now, I just need a birthday boy!

Thanks for coming by!
