Hi Everyone,

I know it is about time I posted. First I would like to say welcome to my newest follower, glad to have you aboard. Secondly, thank you to everyone for the best birthday wishes! A special thank you to my Design Team at Sweet Stampin who created some of the best cards and sent them out to me, you ladies are the best!

I had a wonderful time in Las Vegas! It was a perfect vacation and I have a short story to share with you. So for those of you who did not know I was out there for my birthday, which happens to be on the 22nd. So my husband and I are not big gamblers but we do like to play a little bit. We were playing roulette the whole time betting on 22 constantly, well needless to say it only came out once for a measly $35 pay off.

Well on the last night there, we were walking back to our room around 1:30 am (I know very late for me) and my husband says, " I am placing one last bet on 22" I am thinking you should just donate that money haha. So he puts $20 down on 22 and guess what? Yup think came out and we hit for $700. How exciting is that? I could not believe it, talk about a perfect ending to a great week! So I had to share that bit of fortune with you.

So on today's card, I made this for my nephew Sal, who will be celebrating a birthday next week. He is a great kid and I think incredibly handsome hehe! I used a Kenny K image as I thought it was fitting for him. I colored with copics and kept it a simple masculine card.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp:  Sporty
Love to Create: anything Goes
Incy wincy:  Anything goes.

Thanks for stopping by hope you have all been well.
