Happy Birthday Travis!

So my son was 20 on Halloween. I made this card for his BD. We have always tried to keep the BD seperate from Halloween so I made him this football card....He has been a die hard fan of the Minnesota Vikings since he was 3 years old! (not kidding) hence the purple & gold color :) It is a tri-fold card that I embossed the purple & yellow paper & actually made the football myself with my oval nesties!!! I love how it turned out!!! At least they managed to win this week! He is over every Sunday for football all day as we (my husband) has a 65" tv & the NFL ticket so they can watch every game every week! I also made him this football cake...not bad for my first try. We had his family party on Sunday & his sisters had his "friends" party on Halloween.
And now...just like that...November is here & it is about holiday time! YIKES!!! better get busy!

Travis is in the middle..he is Ace Ventura, pet detective....anyone remember that movie???

Thanks for the visit!!! now back to the election results!!!

great card! where did you find paper that was textured like a football?

Shirley said...

Wow, Gwen, what a great card and cake! Your son looks so much like his father! Hard to tell who the guy on the right looks like. I do know who Ace Ventura is. Your son is better looking. Thanks for sharing. I loved the race and how it turned out here in NC.

WOW - THAT CAKE ROCKS and that card is awesome...all your stuff is marvaleous...the explosion box is not hard at all - only 4 sheets of paper and a scor pal - and some scissors...
