Surfer Dude ......and Popcorn the Bear!

Happy Friday everyone!!
And is it ever a happy one .........my oldest son is celebrating his 11th birthday today, my craft room is back in order and fully functional once more, AND my laptop decided it hadn't died and booted up this afternoon as if nothing had ever been wrong with it!!!! I am still keeping a watchful eye on it though as I suspect there is a loose connection somewhere inside on the motherboard, but for now, I'm a happy bunny! ;)
So, to celebrate I thought I would show you 2 cards today instead of 1, hee hee!! For those of you who have missed my postings I hope having a double feature will make you happy :)
I will be making this a quick post as we have a fun evening planned with Josh, but he is currently immersed in building his new lego! The surfer dude card is his birthday card - he is a complete fish and just adores the water, so I thought Surfer Ian is just perfect for him! And needless to say he LOVED it! I was really happy with the way it turned out. Even happier when my neighbour commented that the twine and beads look just like a surfer necklace - yay - that was my intention and she 'got' it!! Don't you love that when someone 'gets' your creative thinking!
My second card is Popcorn the Bear which I received from Nikki's online store, Bunny-Zoe crafts. I love him and thoroughly enjoyed colouring him with my copics. The design and layout is very simple as I made it as a get well card for my father who is currently in hospital recovering from back surgery. I used a brand new tool on this card - can you guess what it is? Yep, it's my SU! horizontal slot punch for threading my ribbon - love it!

Well, that's it for now! I hope you're having a fabulous Friday and start to the weekend too! Thanks for stopping by and I'm glad to be blogging again - I've missed you all as much as my craft room!
