Happy Birthday for Noah

My son Noah's best friend is Noah!  I know...how unusual is that??  Today is the friend Noah's birthday...he is 16!  Noah has been the best friend my son could ask for.  Since Noah's injury 5 years ago, Noah and his mom have come to our home twice a week to sit with Noah and give me a chance to shop or do whatever.  Now that our Noah has a van, we take our Noah to their house one of those two days a week...but our family has so appreciated their friendship and love!!!  Noah(the friend) LOVES animals!!  He is becoming a rescue/rehabilitation caregiver (he came today to sit with Noah...ON HIS BIRTHDAY),  today he had 9 baby  opossums that he brought with him because they need to be fed every hour.  I found this little mouse in the set from Penny Black Paint the Town...and paper pieced it all...I know...CRAZY...but thought it so cute...
 I just love paper piecing!!  Even the tiny little flames...well, maybe not THOSE!!  And there are 8 candles and 9 flames...how fair is that???
Used gray bazzill, cream and a rainbow of colors for the candles all layered on Papertrey Ink white.  I also used a shadow stamp from A Muse to ground the little guy.  The sentiment is Papertrey Ink.  Happy Birthday Noah...we love you!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  11. I've always loved this adorable image and your card is just perfect for a teen's birthday! I thought I was bad with my tiny little die cut color placement, but now I see someone else enjoys that tedious work just as much as me! The result is fabulous! :)
