Happy Birthday Jakey!

Our sweet little nephew is turning three next week.  Little Jakey is the youngest of the Mangan cousins...and here is in with his big sister, Laura, swinging in their back yard on Labor Day weekend.  That little man doesn't like to wear shirts and I love his sweet little belly!  He definitely doesn't have a problem holding his own as the youngest cousin! :)

So in honor of his birthday, I needed a little boy card.  I wanted some trucks, but don't seem to have any truck stamps (how is that in a house full of boys!?)  I think we've moved onto the grunge look for the the older boys.  But I do have some sport stamps.  So...this is in honor of sweet Jakey Joe!  And uses the fabulous colors from the ColourQ challenge this week.  Happy Friday!  Hope your weekend gets off to a great start!
