Merry Zombie Christmas!

I don't know if it's just me but I am totally into zombies. It started with the movie Shaud of the Dead. OMGosh, when they throw records at the zombies.  FREAKIN' hilarious.  Zombieland is even better.   Remember Cardio and double tap. Then Justin introduced me to  Plants vs. Zombies on my itouch.  Funnest game ever and now I play Zombie farm on Facebook.   To continue my zombie obsession.  I created this Christmas card. Cute HUH?!

Jacob drew this image for me and is available in my Etsy store Wanna Be Creative.
Also, if you love that paper, it's Echo Park "Everyone Loves Christmas" available at
Simply Betty Stamps

Happy Birthday Justin!

Today is my son's 7th birthday.   WOW, does time fly.   
He's losing his puppy look (LOL!) and his teeth. 
He as a jack o' lantern smile.  LOL!

He wanted an Army card for his birthday.   
This is the closest I got to Army.   LOL!   He loved it though.

I used Card Pattern's sketch for this card. 
 The paper is Echo Park Paper "Everyone Loves Christmas"  
I got it from Simply Betty Stamps.  
Ribbon is Martha Stewart and the button is from my stash.  
The sentiment is a rub on from american Crafts.

There are a few pictures of Justin opening presents.

He's into Beyblades. I form of pokemon I think?
And He got Call of Duty Black Ops and Dead Rising 2.
You think those are too old for him. 
 Well,  dad needed a playing buddy and who doesn't like killing zombies.   
Thank you DAD.   (Yes, that was sarcasm)
