Happy Birthday Card for Colten

When we got invited to our friends' grandson's 1-year old birthday party, I really wanted to make a special card for little Colten.  After trying a few different things, I came up with this scene.   He kinda looks like this little boy image too.

Happy Birthday Colten

Last weekend, hubby and I attended our friends grandson's 1 year old birthday party.  We have a lot of fun and Colten is sooooo kawai'i (cute).   You may think this is the card I made for him but actually this is the envelope.  I had the pieces cut out but wasn't really sure how to lay it out.  And guess what?   My hubby designed it.   Pretty good huh?  Suggested he give up fishing and make cards instead.  LOL.  He said, "Nah."

My bad though....shoots, I misspelled his name.   Should be Colten rather than Colton.  Dang!!!!

Secret Sister Swap for May

For the May swap, the theme was "boys."  I wasn't sure if I had a boy-type image in my stash but luckily, I found this one and made this outdoor scene for Jayne.   Looks to me like he's hungry and craving a burger and hot dog.    

To make the cloud background, I made this template by cutting white card stock using the Puffy Cloud Border die.   It has the stitched edge and I didn't want the Distress Oxide ink to bleed thru so I taped the back side of the stitched areas, then placed the template on the card stock that would be used for the background and gently swiped the edges with Distress Oxide.

Turns out she was my secret sister and sent me this cool card of boys (and looks like a girl) toasting marshmallows and playing music by the campfire.  Thanks for the RAKs too.
