Day 76, Thursday, March 17

Happy Birthday, Jim! Today Jim is 57 years old. We had reuben sandwiches from Applebee's tonight for supper. He played tennis and Byron didn't let him win, even though it was his birthday! Byron is just evil, I say!

I made his birthday card....3D. It is an explosion box.

When you take the lid off...the sides fold down and there is a "pot of gold" in the center.

I found the directions for the card on the splitcoaststampers site. The pot was made from the Sizzix wedding cake pop up die...but I don't own that I made my own from three rings of paper. It was a fun project and I hope Jim liked it!
