Birthday Gift for a Nephew...

Happy Labor Day! I want to take a minute to remember all the hard-working members of American society and thank you for your contributions to the American way of life! We really DO live "the American Dream," for the most part, and the USA really IS the greatest country in the world -- thanks, in part, to our citizens and the hard work done to make it so! OK -- Enough blabbering about the good ol' USA! LOL!!!

I want to show you another project I made recently, for a nephew of mine. I didn't make the bag -- just the card to match it! He asked for a University of Utah hoodie for his birthday, so we obliged and got it for him, along with a U drawstring bag, for hauling around all of his sports equipment, etc. The funny thing is that he lives in Colorado, so it's funny sending him Utah stuff! Oh well... Guess he's a fan! LOL!!!

For those of you who do not know, the University of Utah is known around "these here parts" as "The U." Thus, on the card is the "Happy Birthday 2 U" pun that I just couldn't resist! LOL!!!
This card is made with all Stampin' Up! products...

Stamps: Happy Everything; Letterpress Numbers; All about U; Party Punch

Ink: Basic Black craft; Real Red classic

Paper: Basic Black, Real Red, Whisper White CS

Other: Forest Branches Cuttlebug folder; paper snips; dimensionals; bone folder (for distressing edges); 1-inch circle punch

It's pretty simple, so I'll spare you the detailed directions! LOL!!!

Anyway, happy birthday, Bret!!! Love ya!!!

We absolutely loved the creative card! This card definitely needs to be put into the bookstores on campus! I'd buy it!
