A White on White Birthday

I’m discovering I’m quite behind on mailing out birthday greetings to family and friends.  While crafting away with the boys, I made a simple birthday card for one of our nephews.

The banner and numbers were die cut and then the entire main panel was popped up with foam dots. The sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and three silver sequins were added as embellishments.

All supplies from  i {heart} papers:


As I promised, you get to see DS2 and his Titanic drawing…

He created his canvas by taping four pieces of white cardstock together.  He’s already started on another drawing.  This kid is happiest when he’s drawing or writing!

It’s day three of summer vacation and I’ve already heard those words we parents all love so much…”I’m bored.”  A few weeks ago, DS1 was complaining about having too much homework.  Now he’s complaining about not having anything to do!  Isn’t that so very human?!  The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence and the anticipation of something often times brings more happiness than its acquisition.  A few chores should change his outlook.  Hehehe.

Have a great Thursday!

    Your nephew will like this w-o-w card, but I'm sure his mother will LOVE it! Love this CAS card. And what an artist your little fella is!! Reminds me of my youngest at that age. I'll have to post a story about that one…lol! Can't wait to see what DS2 comes up with next. Bev
