{happy} birthday.

Brian had a birthday party to go to today.  A pool party no less!  It was for the sweet little girl that sits next to him in his class.  We went to Target and picked out a cute Barbie doll, (who just happened to be in a bathing suit!) a second outfit and a little bit of $ on a giftcard.  To balance out the girlie stuff, Brian had some money from the tooth fairy and bought himself some macho army guys complete with tank and plane.

Here is the card I made for her:

I managed to get 2 challenges done with this card too!  The first is for Cheryl's Circle Card Challenge over at My Sketch World.  The new card and layout challenges went up for June today so be sure to stop by and check them out!  The first of the month's sketches are up too!

 The second challenge is for a new challenge blog, Party Time Tuesdays.  It is all about birthday cards all the time!  Just think, you'll never have to buy another birthday card again if you play along each week!

Happy Saturday, friends!
