Mornin' hens!
Today is my grandson Jaxon's FIRST birthday!!  I can't believe it's been a year!  Lil' Chick gave him a birthday "PAWTY" on Saturday.  Everything was dog themed and it was a BLAST!  I made him this little card and of course, I had to use a dog to match his theme.   Tee-hee!

OMG, I LOVE THIS CARD!  I know I say that a lot, but there are some cards that just "get me".  I don't know why, but I could just sit and stare at it, I like it that much.  LOL!  I'm weird, what can I say.  Ok, so I stamped the word "happy" and the dog first.  Then after I masked both, as well as the bottom of the card below "happy", I applied the distress inks.  I started with the darker ink and used the lighter inks as I went up the card base.  Then the MAGIC happens with you remove the masks!  Ta-da!  Love that part!  Next, I colored the dog with my Copics and stamped the two sentiments on top and bottom of the word "happy".  Then I extended the tails of the word "happy" so it would go off the card on both edges which creates the separation from the top and bottom.  Love it!!

Ok, I'll leave you today with a photo of the birthday boy, my SWEET Jaxon!

I know, he's just the CUTEST baby EVAH, right?

  2. Absolutely adorable! Both the card and the grandbaby! I love the design and the colours.

  3. Very Cute Grandson I agree but I have to say I have a very cute 1 yr old grandson too! Tee-Hee I wonder how that can be? Oh I know how you feel about loving your card and wanting to sit and stare at it. It is simply a wonderful card and there are times when I feel the same way about a card I made. Your "happy" is so clever and that dog is precious. Awesome Card and grandson too.
