Happy 30th Eric!

My little guy!
I think I always put this picture of Eric when his birthday comes around on my blog but it is my favorite picture of him!  He was celebrating his 3rd birthday in this picture. Tomorrow he will be 30! Where did the time go?  I put more recent pictures of him below but also wanted to share my card that I made for him.  It is a Pop n cut card created by Karen Burniston.  I love the chair and I used faux
leather paper for the chair.  I can picture Eric sitting there relaxing with his soccer ball and cat.  I hope he gets a "kick" out of it!

I used the spellbinders banner dies and spelled out "Eric Happy Birthday" and on the back of the chair it says "Relax".  I found some paper at Michael's that was a tiger print and used that for the rug.  He and his girlfriend, Lauren have 2 cats but I liked the cat with only one.  The flooring is a sizzix embossing folder which looks like hardwood and just sponged a little chocolate chip ink on it.  The front of the card is a picture of Eric and the bicycle die is from  Memory box which is Eric's mode of transportation mostly in San Francisco!  Throughout the card is little touches of Eric.  This was a lot of fun to make and create.  Happy 30th Birthday Eric!  We miss you here in Maine and love you very much!
