Dino Birthday

Having dinner with a friend recently, I mentioned how stumped I was on what theme to use Dinosaur images for.  She (who is NOT a card maker) looked at me like I was missing something pretty obvious, and said they'd be great for milestone birthdays.  In fact, I then realized, I probably should have made one for her since she just had one of those milestones {big grin and wink if she is reading}.

It just so happened I needed another birthday card this week for a male family member, and I decided to do some teasing with this idea.  Searching online for just the right sentiment resulted in some great results.

It's main image is an Ildi Co. Dino digi stamp called Dino's Rex.  They have about 6 different dinosaur images to choose from, and I had a hard time picking.  I coloured with my copics as usual.  Not a lot of bling, after all this is a "man" card.

What do you think?  Any other ideas to share with me of sentiments you would use with this image?


  1. This is a fabulous idea, thank you friend for me. I have a few b-days coming up this winter for men that I was stumped on, this is a perfect idea.
    I am loving the colors and layout of this card. When I get ready to make my FIL's card I'll be coming back to case this. Love it!

  2. Oh yea we might have to think of some good b-day sentiments to go with these and post them on SNR like someone did for the Robots.

  3. This looks terrific! I love the embossed background and the sentiment made me laugh. I love your idea of making the dinosaurs work for adults just by playing around with the sentiment, very clever!

  4. This is so cute, it totally made me smile. TFS!
