Isn't he adorable? Have you ever seen such a cute little guy? Of course I'm biased...he's my grandson and today is his first birthday. I'm fortunate to be here, in London, England, to celebrate with him.
This is the card I made for him. I just recently acquired the Martha Stewart train punch and thought it was perfect for James. The layout of the card is Recipe #13 by Wendy Johnson and can be found in "The Joy of Cardmaking ~~ Collector's Edition". It was also a challenge on The Stamp Shack which Joanie hosted.
The card base is Brocade Blue. The circle is a very dark blue and the image was stamped with VersaMark and then heat embossed using Silver embossing powder. I punched out some squares in scraps of primary colours, stamped Happy Birthday and hand-wrote James. More primary colours for the circle punches, some star brads and colourful ribbon and it was done. I hope my daughter puts it in James' baby book so he can look at it when he's all grown up.
If I can, I'll post some pictures while I'm here in the U.K. because I have another darling grandson, Owen, who is also gorgeous and deserves face-time here on my blog,too.
I'm also excited because on May 6th, I'm going to me a fellow-Shackie, Sue/frankiesue, at Bluewater Shopping Centre in Kent. It's fabulous being able to meet Shackies wherever you go in the world. We're quite a community of crafters and love to meet up. Sue, see you in a few days.
Okay, gotta go now and have some cake!
