I've Been Bizzy!!!

Now don't you think that "bizzy" is much more fun spelled like this...kinda like dizzy!!

I decided to get ahead of the game and make my Brother's birthday card...I've been late for 2 birthdays in the last 3 weeks so I am getting this one done and in the mail today!! He lives in Australia so Stamping Bella's Surfafella is the perfect stamp!! (Isn't it amazing I ALWAYS have the perfect stamp..hmm, maybe I have too many...Nah, you can never have too many!!!)
So I used one of my favourite papers from My Mind's Eye- Wild Asparagus, it has my favourite (retired) SU colours..River Rock, Blue Bayou and Groovy Guava. I coloured in my fella and used the layout from Mojo Monday week 79 (guess where I'll be submitting this card for the challenge). I changed it a little 'cause the knot on the ribbon would have covered his legs and it looked silly. Here is the layout from the Mojo monday challenge. Inside the card I stamped "They say it's your Birthday".
I will also be submitting this card for Janet's Corrosive Challenge #4...It has to be anything that is in the water...well If he fell off his board, Surfafella would be in the water...right??!! I know a bit of a stretch but I don't have any fish or frog stamps or anything else that would be in the water.

I also made some baby thank you's for my neighbour...who is still waiting to have the baby!!
I used the same layout that I used with Agnes in one of my previous posts and I used the Stamping Bella amimals Giraffe...same one I used for her baby card. Inside the card is just a simple "A Note of Thanks" from SU's Thank You Kindly set. I added a few baubles and some ribbon to embellish the card. I wanted to keep things relatively simple since I was making 10. the main colours are SU's Barely Banana and Bashful Blue.

Phew...thats it for now!!
