APP-Y Birthday

Hello everyone and welcome!
I'm really happy that you stopped by today because I have a special post to share with you!  My sweet friend, Georgiana, invited me to be a "Guest Diva" over at Die Cuttin' Divas!  If you've never paid a visit to this fun Challenge Blog, you need to hop on over for a visit.  They have some great challenges and a very talented Design Team, guaranteed to get you motivated!

This week's challenge is a sketch challenge. And, the timing was perfect because tomorrow is my "baby boy's" birthday!  Of course, my "baby"is turning 30 - but...he's still my baby (sorry Matthew)!  So, here's my card for my baby boy Matthew....

(click on photo to enlarge)

Thank goodness for electronic devices!  Matthew lives a couple of hours away and a lot of our communication is through texting and emails.  When I saw this image, I knew it would be perfect for his birthday, especially with that fun sentiment!

* The iPad is an SVG from "Designs on Cloud 9".
I cut the bottom layer from silver metallic paper twice and used pop dots between the layers.
* The SVG has plain blue squares, but I added a few icons to my version.
* The sentiment is from "Pink By Design" 

* I didn't have any computer-related paper, so I just typed several "computer phrases", printed out my paper and used my oval Spellbinders to make my background mat!

It's always great to work with the talented ladies at Die Cuttin' Divas and I'd like to thank Georgiana again for the opportunity.  And, thanks to each of you for stopping by and leaving your sweet comments!  Be sure to stop by Die Cuttin' Divas to see the sketch and get all the challenge information.  I hope to see your creation linked up this week!

Until next time,
