Happy Birthday Robotics

Does this look familiar? I used the same paper and sketch,Rae's Bonus sketch, as Friday's "xo" card...it worked out perfectly because I'm making a birthday card for my co-worker's son. This is the same gal that I made this What's Cookin'? card for...this time the son is a video game player. It was my perfect opportunity to use my There She Goes "Crafty Taglines" clear set that I recently won. Jessica is a fellow Washingtonian so I received my 3, yes you read it right, 3 FREE sets speedy quick! I'm crossing my fingers that when my co-worker says video game player that she means computer gamer...not a wii player but it's all good, right? The super tiny "birthday wish" on the computer monitor is a Basic Grey rub-on. All that Sassafras'alicious Robotics paper is nestled on Stampin' Up Basic Grey...the dots on the scallop circle are ala my Twinklette pen, just a sweet amount of glitter {don't want to glitterized the poor boy's birthday card}. I counter balanced the glitter with the Thickers felt circles...felt rocks.
I've been meaning to share my new personalized stamp that I bought in December. I hit a FABulous sale on expressionery.com. It was funny, my boy said: "Where's the crown?". I told him that I was thinking of moving away from that and he said: "But it is sooo you Mom!". Isn't that funny?
