Happy Birthday, 2 cards, 3 challenges

Whew it's been busy here today...LOVE it.
I have two Birthday cards and three challenges to enter them in. The first card is a Bugaboo image and computer generated sentiment. I have to tell you, I love Bugaboo images and this was so fun to color I did two.
This was colored with my Bic markers. Perfect young man card, I think. I'm entering this in Bugaboo, Catch the Bug challange-Anything goes. And in OWH mid week challenge-use dots. I have to tell you, I just learned how to do the "special sentiment" from this great site, here. KUDOS...I will be practicing this a LOT!

My next card is Hambo's latest image and challenge. Yup, I read the directions several times...USE lots of Gold. Okay, I did!  My brothers g/f's b'day is on the 17th so this card is for her.
 And a close up of the image;
Is he not the cutest? I usually don't make St. Pat's day cards. NOT a big fan of green...but this was perfect for Shannon's b'day. I added gold to the hat band and on the gold with my Gold leaf pen, then to make it shine, I added stickles to the pot of gold.
Time for lunch, I'm starving! LOL
Happy Crafting,
Shirley G
