Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday published on 9 Comments on Happy Birthday

Nine years ago this morning, I was blessed to become a mom for the first time.  How can it be that so many years have passed so quickly??

And now look at him:

Yesterday we celebrated his birthday with his friends and he had a great time.  He also had a soccer tournament on Saturday and Sunday.  They played 5 games in 2 days and his team won the tournament for the U10 age bracket.  Wow, what a weekend!  And wow, what tired kids I have.

Here is the card I made him for his birthday.  I turned to the Summer Smooches again for the fun colors and patterns.  I love how this print goes perfectly with the balloons from Patterned Party!  I cut out two of the balloons and popped them up on Dimensionals.  The sentiment comes from Up, Up and Away.  The font on it is so perfect for kid cards!  The sketch on this card is from the oh so talented Margaret Moody and is for the Pals Paper Arts 135 Challenge.  Cool sketch, huh??!!  I chose the colors from the DSP for the balloon colors.  Great DSP really simplifies my stamping, I must say!

Thank you for humoring a proud mom today.  I’ll be back in just a bit with a bonus project from Craft Project Central and tomorrow with the latest from Freshly Made Sketches.  It is a sketch you won’t want to miss!  Thanks for stopping by today!
