Birthday Hugs


Happy Saturday - and happy long weekend to those of you in provinces which celebrate Family Day. It's my daughter's reading break this week so she'll be coming home later today for the week. I can't wait!! It's bitterly cold outside so we'll likely stick with indoor activities (although a trip or two to Starbucks is always worth braving the elements).


I've taken on a part-time design team role with Too Cute by Jessica and I've made a card for my nephew who will be turning one next week. The adorable Birthday Boy Bears has a few great images and this one holding the balloons is my favourite. I used some metal dies (no longer available) from My Craft Spot for the fun borders at the top and bottom as well as the orange photo frame behind the bear. I added some baker's twine for the balloons too. The bear and his balloons are popped on the card for a bit of dimension.


I love the chunky font on my sentiment from Craftin Desert Divas's Bring on the Cake stamp set. It's perfect for a child's card! I added a couple of enamel dots to finish things off.

Have a fabulous weekend!

What a darling card, Kate. It's cold here, too, so I'm staying in to quilt and craft. Keep warm and enjoy your daughter's visit.
