Happy Birthday to Ewe!!

Mornin' hens!  Yup, still cranking out birthday cards for September!!  LOL!  Oh but I do LOVE making cards for my friends and family!  This little cutie is for my niece Patty.  I know she's gonna love it.

I started by die cutting the DP for the background using this cute scalloped frame die.  I LOVE this die!  It makes the perfect background for cards, and the scallops add that little touch of sweetness!  Ok, so then I embossed a piece of SU Very Vanilla CS with this Sizzix embossing folder because I thought the texture reminded me of sheep's wool! LOL!  Next, I die cut the embossed panel with a stitched frame die and cut a stitched tag too!  

I stamped the image onto the tag and also onto a piece of white cardstock.  I colored the image with my Copics and fussy cut it out.  I colored the grass with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol and adhered the image with some foam tape.  To finish, I added some organza ribbon to the tag, and some puffy white paint for the wool on the sheep. Ain't she cute?  Okee dokee, you hens have a great day and come baaaaaaack soon!  {snort!}  {{{hen hugs}}}

Note: Elzybells Stamp Sets - "From me to ewe" and "Little Birdie Told Me" are no longer available.

OMG, I'm on cloud nine!  Smiley  Isn't he GORGEOUS!! 
Jaxon weighed 10lbs 10oz... and was 22 3/4" long.  
Yup, skip that newborn stuff, he's already wearing 3 month clothes!!  LOL!    

And just look at those cheeks!!  I could smooch them all day long!!

This is the photo of him in his "going home" outfit that Grandmommy Jeanie had made for him.

I just had to snap this one of him blowing bubbles... tee-hee

He loves looking at himself.  Me too!!  LOL!

OMG, look at that face...  Mwah!!

Lil' Chick received these onesies as a shower gift.  
There's one for each month, through a year old...  Cool huh?

Oh and I had to show you this one of Jaxon puckering up for Grandmommy and wearing the onesie I made him.  Awwww....

Happy Birthday Doug!

Mornin' hens!  Today is my son in law's birthday!  He says "holler" all the time, so when I saw this stamp I knew I wanted to use it for his card this year.  Have I mentioned how much I loooooooooove my SIL?   Honestly, Lil' Chick sure did pick a WINNER!  Winner, winner, chicken dinner!!  Tee-hee! 

Ok, so to start I stamped my little farmer and chick images, colored them with my Copics, and fussy cut them out.  Next, I stamped the speech bubble, and then the sentiment inside, and cut the speech bubble out using the coordinating die.  I die cut the clouds from some blue cardstock and the hill line from green cardstock.  Then placing the green CS on top of the blue CS, lining up where I wanted the hill to start, I placed the stitched rectangle die on top and cut them both out leaving that great stitched edge!  I adhered the panels to the white card base with foam tape and then used my Prismacolor marker to draw a thin black line around the panel.

To finish, I adhered the speech bubble and images with a few foam dimensionals and there ya have it!  Ain't it purty? Okee dokee, that's it for me today!  Hope you have a GREAT day!  {{{hen hugs}}}
  Happy Birthday Doug!!
