Holy Smokes, Batman! Look Who's 5!

At 8:09am five years ago today, my life changed forever and I became a mom.  I have watched him grow and change and today, as we rush off to school at that same exact time, I can't help but think about how fast time goes by.  When did my small man get so big?!?!

I wanted to share the birthday card I made for him.  I always ask him what he would like on his card.  This year the answer was Batman.  I was a little sad it wasn't Star Wars as that is the theme of his presents and cake (also by his request), but it's his birthday so Batman it is!  I colored up Teen Scene Goes Hollywood Christian the Dark Hero from Simply B Stamps for the occasion.  He is colored with Copics, fussy cut, popped up on foam squares, and layered on top of a Classic Ovals Nestabilities from Spellbinders.  Papers are Recollections - Comic Hero.  The sketch is courtesy of Digi Sketch Challenge.   They have an optional theme as well but I didn't follow that this time.  I used a Martha Stewart bat border punch as well as the city skyline Die-namics from My Favorite Things.  I added a sentiment on their Fishtail Flags Stax Die-namics.  The "5" is a glitter chipboard number sticker from my stash.

We have a big evening planned with a birthday trip to Chuck E Cheese.  (I'm a firm believer that birthdays are super special and should be celebrated to their full potential!)  Happy 5th Birthday, Kayne!  Momma loves you to the forest moon of Endor and to Gotham City and back, buddy!

Markers used: Copics (E00, E04, E11, E21, YG93, N0, N2, N4, N6, N8, Y35, B32, B34, B37).
