Robotz Birthday Card

One of my nephews, Nate, turned 11 at the beginning of October.  I can't believe how quickly he and his brother, Cam (9), are growing up - it seems like just yesterday they were itty bitty.  They are my brother-in-laws sons and since the day I met those 'little' boys in 2001, they have been my 'babies' and have held a very special place in my heart.  Luckily for me, although they've gotten older and bigger, they still love to get hugs and kisses from Aunt Jessica -- although I'm sure that'll change once they hit the teenage phase. :-)

You may remember that I made a Robotz birthday card during the MPS National Scrapbook Day challenge (you can see it here) - that card was for Cam's birthday.  Since he loved his card so much (at my MILs birthday dinner, when she was showing the card I made her, he yelled out that I had made him a Robot card for his birthday), I decided to make Nate a card using the Robotz cartridge also.

I think I cut the Robot at around 3" (don't recall for sure, sorry) and I used the font from the same cartridge to cut the "Happy Birthday" sentiment (at 3/4", I think?).  I tried to keep the colors bright and cheery and I love how it turned out.  I used the Spots and Dots Cuttlebug folder to add some texture to the background.  The confetti ribbon and balloon are some buttons I had in my collection.

Nate was so excited when he opened his card - it made my day that he enjoyed it so much.  Thanks for stopping in and taking a peek....have a great day.....
