Sweet Boy

Well, it's a snow day here (it's not actually snowing yet)
so hopefully I can get a few things caught up today
and I will start with my blog :)
I have 2 cards and 1 LO to share.
The first one is straight out of the box. I added a paper doily &
some cotton thread from my stash and that is it.

This card features my brand new punch (I have had it for over
 2 months but this is the first time I used it,
so I still consider it new.
I joined a Stampin' Up! stamp club in December in hopes to
improve my stamping abilities and met some
wonderful ladies (and have got some rockin'
products to boot!) I am in love with all things birds/owls
 lately (not the real thing though - real birds
kinda freak me out), so of course I snatched this
punch right up from Tina Weller!

I was inspired as SOON as I saw this die cut from My Mind's Eye and knew that I wanted to do a LO with ALOT of different descriptions and alphas about my big boy. Since Hip 2-B Square kits are always bursting with alphas (4 in this kit & the add-on), I thought this would be a prime time to work this project into my assignments.

This is Connor on his 8th birthday :)

I had a bit of empty space between these 2 words and fixed it up with small piece of light coloured cardstock. It fills the space up and doesn't make the layout look too busy or fussy.
Thanks for popping by today!
HUGS & Happy Surfing! :)
