Muggy

I don't like muggy weather.  I feel like I can't breathe.  Today feels like it needs a thunderstorm to clean itself up!  I hope we get one 'cause I love the DRAMA! 

My little grandnephew is going to be 1 year old on Monday, and from the latest post on Facebook by my nephew, it looks like he's pretty close to walking!  How did that happen so fast?  He's the cutest thing, with big blue eyes and curly red hair and the biggest smile ever!  I made a card for him, but was stumped for awhile because I haven't many kid-oriented stamps.  I finally came up with this:


I tried out a lot of my new goodies from the 2012-13 Idea Book and Catalogue like the Argyle Textured Impressions embossing folder, the World's Greatest stamp, (which is another stamp available in my Start Stampin' Bundle Workshop Offer).  The pennants are from the set Pennant Parade and this set coordinates with the Petites Pennants Builder punch.  The cake is from the set Make a Cake and was stamped several times in different colours, then cut out and assembled.  I used glitter brads in Real Red to anchor the Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White Baker's Twine.   The paper is Baja Breeze for the base and embossed panel and Summer Starfruit for the bottom portion.


What really grabbed me was signing the card "Great Aunt Heather"!  My goodness - that sounds old!  Much worse than Grandma!  Sheesh!

Have a Happy Birthday, little Randy!
