Tuesday's Party Time!

Hello friends! Did you enjoy your holiday weekend? We had a quiet day at home which I believe was the first year we didn't spend it with my parents or any of the kids and it was nice!  We made dinner together and usually you cannot have both of us in the kitchen at the same time and we did just fine!! Well, we're both still alive!! Only kidding! A lot of the western states are getting snow and so far we have had none...last years 60 inches were enough to last me awhile!

It's Tuesday and ya all know what that means by now! It's party time! Awesome blog and especially this time of year when your making Christmas cards, place settings, gifts and what knots. It is nice to take a break and do a birthday card, which has nothing to do with Christmas! Well, that is what Party Times Tuesday is all about...making birthday cards! You still have a challenge, but a birthday sentiment must appear on the front of your card!  I received an order for 3 boy's birthdays cards from the age of 9 -11. Making men's cards rather they are 2 or 92 is always a challenge for me. I am so used to putting  flowers, ribbons, bling or bows on my cards! Are you the same way...it really makes you stop and think? I was smart enough to ask if they were in any sports or  likes or dislikes and here is the reply I received: one likes TV computer games, another  plays football and the last one likes to ride his bike.  Well, the next question I had was what are the school colors for the football player, black and green.  I had that one and the computer games picked. But, I didn't have an image for the bike rider. Well, let me tell ya...it almost killed me, but I figure all boys like baseball and being in Baltimore the colors should be orange and black......I apologize Pittsburgh, my home town of black and gold!  Presenting my 3 birthday cards for the boys! Don't forget to visit my team mates for Party Time Tuesdays for they have awesome creations for you! You can visit them through my side bar too!
