TGF Birthday Card...

Hi everyone! I've been working on this card for my DH, took me wayyyy tooo long!! I decide to make a birthday card at the last minute ~ which means it is now late.. :(  But I'm happy how it turned out! There are four panels on it, one for each of us...first up is me!
Fleur Anya in my fave colors! Followed the MM Challenge which this week is to CAS a fabulous card made by Joni. She makes adorable cards, visit her blog and you'll see for yourself! I'm also entering this to the Outlawz Monday card challenge, use your favorites. 
Next up, my DD...
I had each of my kids pick which TGF Sprout they like to be, and DD picked Summer! She's a real cutie and just love her little giggle! For this panel, I followed the CAF LAST Saturday Sketch {sniff!}. But not to worry, cuz there's a brand new challenge blog, just take a look at all the new excitement!!
OK,next is DS...
DS picked Dylan and Paul, so I had to alter him. Used his fave colors and followed a Friday Sketchers layout...but I didn't finish in time for the challenge, and I just found out they've closed their blog {sniff again!} But I love how the banner turned out! The stars and banner flags were all hand cut, turned out better than I thought!
Finally, my DH with all of us surrounding him...
I picked Jeremy...he so well dressed! Kept the layout pretty simple, just a ribbon and a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps. Used my new nesties to pop up "DH"! so i think it'll qualify for the NEW FFChallenge!
Here's a pic of the four panels all opened up

and we each had a tag with a birthday message...
 {will have to add that in later...still need to take a pic of it...} ETA...here are the tags...


This was so much fun to make, next time I'll know better to start earlier (maybe...LOL!)
Thanks for stopping by!
Be sure to come back soon for a surprise!! ;D
