St. Louis Cardinals Birthday Card!

Hey Everyone,

How are you all doing today? I'm doing great! So the next card, I'm about to show you is the card I made for my Brother in Law for his birthday. I completed it 10/23/2011. On October 23rd I woke up and realized that tomorrow is my brother in law's birthday and I hadn't made him a card yet. I was trying to think of something to make him and I asked my dad at church and he said Dusty likes the St. Louis Cardinals. I suddenly got an idea of exactly what I would do. I went to JoAnn's in search of red feathers lol because Hobby Lobby was closed. So I went home and cut out a white circle on the cricut chalked it and made markings on it with my permanant marker. Then I hand cut out a bat and the Cardinal. Then I glued red feathers to the Cardinal to make it look real. The card took me about an hour to hour and half to do.

When I was done I wrote on the back "Sorry Dusty I didn't get you anything for your birthday, but how does the Cardinals winning the World Series sound?" So the World Series was playing at the time and I got worried a couple of nights later thinking oh no what if they don't win and then in the end they won.Yay!! My brother in Law loved the card and thought I spent a ton of time making it.

Thanks For taking the time to view my blog and card.
