Christian Back to School

I made this card using Christian Back to School by Simply Betty Stamps. I've been set on a personal challenged by my husband to truly make "the impossible" boy card since we think hand-made does not equal boy! However, he says this one fits the bill! The other one posted today didn't - win some, loose some.

For the sentiment, I drew out HB for Happy Birthday and colored it graffiti style then set it on a decorative bottle cap. The second one shows one I drew for my Mom on the same day. The challenge is to create a card or project using a birthday boy theme, all about boys, and finally to use Amy's Straight Hair technique.

Did you know? Darwin's bark spider, a species new to science from Madagascar, weaves its huge web over flowing rivers, stretching up to 80 feet (25 meters) over rivers. It is so big that it can catch 30 or more prey insects at any one time.
