Happy Birthday Brother!

Friday is my brother Richard's birthday! With all the happenings going on over at Bugaboo, I had to print up Gus and color him up! He and Stella were rockstars this week for the Bugaboo 2nd Birthday Bash.

My brother is always so handy dandy and helping me out around my house with repairs or projects so I thought this image was perfect for him. This image is called Gus Tidbits-WTF.  I cut around the image and added it to the card on dimensionals.  I also added his birthdate on the calender and stamped  a birthday greeting on a hammer I cut out with my silhouette and chalked a bit. I might add some crystal effects to his glasses and call it good!

Hope you enjoy Gus as much as I do! Thanks for stopping by today...Happy Birthday Dinky!

Hello!

Great card! My brother's name is Richard also and he just had a birthday on 12/28. It was great fun to try to think of a good card for him. We finally did get heat in our building - it turned out to be the outside vents plugged with snow from our big snow fall! Take care! Wishing you a happy week!

Hugs,

Barbara Diane
