Super Boy...TIME OUT Challenge #36~Case Alice, Simply Create Too #91~Anything Goes

Hello!

What a weekend! The bike races went smoothly, thanks in large part to my amazing husband who knows how to officiate a cycling event masterfully!  Even the criterium race, often known to be somewhat a crash-fest went off pretty much incident free; which is not to say crashes didn't happen, but nothing that didn't see those involved gathering up their bikes and carrying on with racing. Whew...

We're heading north tomorrow afternoon!  Yahooo...family time for me, while my husband, on Thursday, journeys several hours further to officiate cycling competitions at Western Canada Summer Games. I'll miss him, of course, but given a choice between 'home' time and bike races...easy decision!

Okay, I'm back to my old 'last minute' dashes for TIME OUT, which is, for Challenge #36, an invitation to case Alice's card:


When we returned from our 'cross Canada/USA trip' last week, waiting in my mailbox was a special SUPER set of treats from Ms. Sweetest of the Sweet, herself, the darling Michele from icardeveryone.  Alice's inspiration card called me to showcase one of  the (several) little gems Michele sent me: 


Ta dahhhh....SUPER BOY!  My twist goes like this (Let's twist again, like we did last summer...Sorry...had to *grin*):  Super Boy = cactus; rainbow stars = washi tape background; sentiment banner = sentiment.  I'll be giving this to my nephew (Happy 41 Months Old) - along with the souvenir Ottawa t-shirt (yes, cheesy, but it's sooooo cute!) I bought him.  


THANK YOU, Michele! A 'super' gift from a 'super' friend to give to my 'super' little guy! 

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
Hugs,

This is really so super and very sweet also. So perfectly colored, and I love that he appears to be standing on his sentiment banner. The rainbow of stars behind him is a wonderful backdrop for your super boy.
