Have A Blast!

Hello my friends. Almost the weekend...yay! Today is the Feast of St Anthony, the Patron Saint of Lisbon. If you work in the city today you've got the day off and there's no shortage of fun and festivities. One part of the tradition is to consume an obscene number of grilled sardines and to wash it all down with copious amounts of beer, not necessarily in that order.  And as the day progresses there'll be parades, street dancing, revelry and debauchery... not quite what the Saint had in mind, I'm sure!

Enough chit chat, here's a masculine birthday card for my stash. Grand total = 2!

The paper is from Crate Paper's "Toy Box".

The didi stamp is called "Ocean Paradise" by Sweet and Sassy, coloured with SN markers.

The sentiments is from "Half Pint Heroes" by Waltzing Mouse Stamps, in Memento Espresso Truffle. Simple embellies of a few blue bling. 

A little message on the inside for the birthday boy from WMS Say It Loud set.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm feeling a little sad. It was two months ago to the date that my little Snoops decided to cross over Rainbow Bridge. I miss her terribly. Hope y'all have a better day.

    Sardines & beer? Does barfing follow as one of the traditions? lol...I think you're right, probably not quite what the Saint had in mind!

    I love the scene you've created - and how you've left the banner ends free - so much movement & dimension that way - I can practically feel the ocean breeze! Thanks so much for coming to play with us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches :)
