Happy Birthday, NiMo!

Today my grandson celebrates his 12th birthday. 
This is the card I made for him.

 Nick will have no problem with celebrating with cake.  
He basically eats anything that isn't moving!
Now that I think of it, I should have used a zebra design on the crazy bird.  Nick loves the Little Debbie's Zebra Cakes.  If you are familiar with the hit song Cake on the Beach, we took a box down to the shore this past summer so we could get a picture of Nick and his brother eating 'cake on the beach'.  
Note to self: Remember that for next year's card!

This card is a combination of so many items: die cuts, embossing, cricut cut numbers, 3 brands of stamps, the reflective side of a recycled student driver sign, a piece of wrapping paper for the bg matching what I used for his gift, baker's twine, stick on embellishments, a pair of skittles, fussy cutting, and coloring.

Before I go, the dryer buzzing reminds me of a recent senior moment my DH and I experienced.  On Sunday afternoon we kept hearing this strange noise, similar to the emergency noise we sometimes get on our TV back home.  But it wasn't the TV here.  All afternoon we kept hearing it and asking each other what that noise was.  Hours later we discovered it was our phone with an emergency tornado alert for our area.  Thank heavens we just got a bunch of rain and strong winds.  Some people in Georgia weren't as fortunate.  
Thoughts and prayers go out to them.
