My great nephew had just started basketball just before his birthday, so I decided to go with that theme for his birthday card this year. The images are stickers, I just added a bit of marker under the boy to ground him and I decided to write the sentiment myself, I thought it would be neater than just saying Happy Birthday. I used a sketch from Splitcoast stampers for this card.
Dimple Street gang- Sports boys stickers
Spellbinders -- Long classic rectangle small die
Marvy - 1" square punch
Making memories -- paper
I never get around to going through my pictures I take to share when I actually take them, so I made an effort to do that this time, on my hubby's day off a couple days ago we drove over to Missouri to Elephant Rocks state park, they have a very nice paved trail there, although you can go off and do some climbing if you want. It is very hilly though.
They have an old ruin of an engine house that serviced the trains that worked in these Quarries years ago, they use to mine here and when they were done they turned it into a park. Here is my hubby standing in front of it, isn't the brick work so cool. Yep he has two cameras he takes picture with and I now have the very first camera he ever bought.
First signs of spring, the buds are forming, YAH!!!
Here you can see the holes they would make when mining.
Here we are at the top of Elephant Rock
The trail has these tight spaces to get through the rocks or you can go an easier way for those with wheel chairs, we chose to go this way, more fun :)

This is how my hubby chooses to get this picture, I think my way is safer :)
We enjoyed a beautiful day out! Hope you enjoy your weekend.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you join my again tomorrow for my next Dies R us blog post.
