Another birthday card!

Woo hoo, it's a record 2 posts for me so far this week and it's only Wednesday! I don't think it's going to happen again anytime soon though. But I actually made a second birthday card!I figured I better get to using all the new stamps that I ordered. This one is from the Amazing Duo set from The Greeting Farm. I actually colored this one first, which is when I realized that I have to color the skin before the hair otherwise I'll smudge black onto the face! I don't know why his superhero outfit is so colorful...I was trying to find pencils that matched all the little circles and then ended up using every color! The birthday paper and matching cardstock is from a birthday paper pack from Die Cuts with a View from I don't know how long ago. The number is from the Sizzix font set Round-a-bout, it has actually come in handy a few times. I'm not sure where I got the ribbon from...I'm such a collector, it might have come off some packaging of something else that I bought, but it seemed to match pretty well so I'm glad I saved it! Again I did the sticking things down before getting all the pieces together, so after I already made a hole for the "you're super" tag, I had to figure out the best place for the"5," which makes it feel kind of like reading backwards now.

I know, I actually had some time in the evening this past weekend! Takes me forever to take the photo, download it, put the watermark. Plus I had to edit this one since the white balance was on the wrong setting. Typing the post takes a while too! I had to edit it just now because it sounded a little weird.
