A Birthday Card

Hello fellow crafters! I know I have been missing a little lately! I promise to catch up real soon! Lots going on with the up coming holiday, with cleaning, shopping and everyday life! But you know what there is something VERY special happening this Friday! Click here to keep checking for details! Can't say much but I know one thing ~ your gonna want this or these! Okay no more because I just might slip!!!

So today I am sharing with you a card I made for my son's friend! His birthday party was this weekend! He LOVES the colors orange and black! So I thought that should be easy enough! Well I must say it was not for me! I just struggle with this card for so long! Your probably sitting there thinking ~ doesn't look hard at all! I think I just had a mental block! Maybe the orange and black was throwing me off! But I must say using Emma's new alphabet dies SERIOUSLY saved the day!! I LOVE these little guys!!! I did use my Circut ~ yes ~ I dusted it off and thought lets give it a try! I did use a capital "T" for this card! Since this little boy notices EVERYTHING ( he is very, very smart) and being that he is in first grade I better make this card using proper writing! Next time ~ I am not going to do that! Emma's dies are to much fun not to use! Anyway I did make it an easel card and threw on a few extras. There is also a hint on this card as to what is to come VERY VERY soon! My goal is this week to keep my post VERY short! Lets hope I keep my word!

  6. Yes, you have been missed Kim, i was being to wonder where you were.. but i think we are all pretty busy with Thanksgiving, and if you had the little's one birthday this week end you have been busy. Your card is AWESOME and i am sure he loved it. Orange and black were a good color choice and i love the big T.. i always stress when i am making one of my boys a card, i always want it to be perfect for them, but i am sure they like what i put in the card more than the card. (i always put money in it) lol. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, filled with many many wonderful memories and filled with lots of laughter. hugs
