It's your Special Day!

I would like to wish you all a very "Happy Thanksgiving"  I hope you all enjoy your families and make some lasting memories.

There is nothing more special than one of your children's birthdays and this week my oldest son will be 38.  He was a Thanksgiving baby so we celebrated this past weekend.  This is the card I made for him.  My image is "Aussie Santa" and I just did a little bit of a twist on him, you can get this jolly ole man at " Make It Crafty."

 
He is colored with copics.  I did my shading with "Walnut Stain" distress ink.  The DP is "Romance Novel" by Prima, then I just ran a piece of kraft card stock through the crimper and distressed it.  I used the little loopy brads to tie the twine with.  I added some glossy accents to his can of cheer.
 
Have a great week!
Hugs,
