Happy Birthday!

My great nephew turned 1 Sunday and his parents went all out with his party!

 Isn't he a cutie pie?  Wish I lived closer to pinch those sweet cheeks.

So, I hope they liked this cute birthday card I made for him. 

I'm loving making banners and flags lately it seems!  With the Perfect Pennents Punch, this banner was easy. 

Supplies used:
Card Stock:  Island Indigo, Whisper White, DSP stack (green polka dot), Polka Dot Parade DSP, non SU plaid paper
Stamp:  Elebration Single Stamp (retired), Whimsical Alphabet stamps (retired)
Ink:  Basic Black, Basic Gray, Island Indigo
Accessories:  2 3/8" Scallop Punch, 2 1/2" Circle Punch, Perfect Pennents Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Bakers Twine, SU Markers, Aqua Brush, Heart Buttons (non SU), Crystal Effects

Good Bye to Elebration

A quick reminder .... TODAY is the last day (midnight April 30) to order from the Occasions Mini catalog AND the Summer Smooches Promotion ends as well.  The Retired Accessories are available while supplies last.

So, here is another card I made with a retiring stamp.  This single stamp (Elebration) is one I have had my eye on all year because I kept seeing so many cute cards made with the darling little elephant.  I finally broke down last month and ordered it.  Wouldn't you know it?  It's retiring!!  Oh well, it is a single stamp so is pretty cheap.

I used some retired supplies on this card.  The DSP is from the Holiday Mini (Frostwood Lodge) and the Corduroy Button was retired last year.  I still have quite a stash of them though.  I used Copics to color the image.  The ribbon is a piece I found in my Ribbon Jar.

Sonny & I took two Red Cross training classes this weekend in Charlotte.  The first one was Deployment 101 and was quite informative.  They gave us the information we need when we are deployed - how much advance notice we will get (24 hrs), how long we will be expected to stay (2 weeks), what to pack, how much money we will be allotted for each day, how to get to where we are going and what to expect when we arrive.  In the afternoon we had an abbreviated Defensive Driving course.  I can just tell you, I was tired of sitting by 3 pm!!
