Happy Birthday My Jonathan, aka Fin aka Finny

My youngest grandson turned 11 on January 18th.  He is the sweetest, funniest, best little buddy!  As my son, his uncle, says, "He is just a special kid.  There is no other way to describe him".  He is a real outdoor kinda guy whose favorite color is "camouflage.    I had a camouflage card made for him, but when I saw "MOTHER DEER AND FAWN" at the Digi Doodle Shop I just had to make him another card using them.

It just so happened that The Digi Doodle Shop Challenge this week is "Blue and Brown".  This was  the perfect digi for blues and browns.  I colored with my Copics and used a Sharpie Poster-Paint Pen to make the white spots on the deer.  I cut the digi out with a Square Spellbinder and colored the sky white it was still in the die so I would have a white frame.The sentiment is a Digi Doodle sentiment from their Fun With Birthday collection.  (Shhhh , don't tell anyone, but it is free too!)  I printed it on craft paper and then colored the letters and shaded the banner with a blue Copic.  My papers are DCWV and the craft paper is Stampin' Up.  The buttons are from my stash and I used a Creative Memories Square punch for the squares.

Hope it gets a "Wow, Nana" from my Fin.  If not maybe he will like the Camouflage one I am sending too.  LOL.

Now's your turn, get out your blue and brown and start making a card.  Need some inspiration, check out what my so very talented  Design Teammates have made for you.  Who knows this may be your lucky week and you will win a $10 gift certificate from the Digi Doodle Shop.

Have a good week and Happy Crafting.
