Simple Boy Birthday Card


Happy Friday!

I hope that your week has been a good one.
Mine was long... very very long.
Does anyone else have "ski week" at their elementary school?
That's an entire week off for the children, plus the weekend before and after the week off. 
9 days off from school!
It wasn't so bad when I was teaching preschool and I looked forward to the time off.
Trying to keep my boys off of the electronic stuff and tv was difficult.
This summer, the boys will be going to camp! lol!


I wanted to put together a quick "boy" birthday card.
I didn't have very much time to spend on it.
I'm not very good with "masculine" cards so I'm quite pleased with how this turned out. I think the coloring needs more work on it but I only had 15 minutes to put this one together.
Hope you like!

Hi Jane,
Great card, fun!
The kids are off this week here. They call it half term here. Doesn't really effect me though!!
