Happy 50th Birthday!

Today, I'll be toasting a co-worker's 50th birthday at the end of the work day!  He loves wine, recently refinished his own wine cellar, so a group of us will share a glass of wine and toast him!  I bought a bottle for him but honestly know very, very little about wine!  Erin, thanks for the help in guiding me!  The Embellish Mixed Pattern Challenge was the perfect challenge for me to make his card!  I used stamps from PTI, Hero Arts and Practicing Creativity to make it.  I'll have to try to mix and match patterns more often.  I like stretching myself a bit!

Now...switching subjects!  Our Godchild, Emma, lives next door. She is going out of town for Christmas so we gave her present to a few days early.  She had gifts for us too...Pat's gave us quite the giggle, "Mr. Mangan, you need this for when you play poker with your friends."  She knows him well.  And I think the drink of choice during holiday poker tonight might be a little different than the Mountain Dew he used to try out his new toy!

Oh you rocked that challenge, Lynn!! The patterns work so well together on this cool, CAS card!
Those glasses are so funny! I also love the can of Mountain Dew (Chris and I love that stuff but it costs a fortune over here!)
Hugs!
