In Advance?

Thought I could maybe get ahead of all the birthdays coming up. If that is a possibility? This card is for our youngest grandchild's first birthday. He is even cuter than the card - now what kind of Grandma would I be if I thought any differently?!! This card was so easy to make, it almost made itself! I love the Edwin images, but I think this one with the chicken is my favorite. I am deathly afraid of chickens, so I can't imagine why I am so crazy nuts about this stamp! I managed to find a good reason to put flowers on my "boy" card, so they actually look like they belong (I think so anyhow!). There is lots of glitz, as usual and I even got some glitzy ribbon! The letters of his name hold the card in the standing position. Colorwise, the letters didn't photograph as close to the background red cardstock as it is in real life. Guess its because of the shine on the letters. They are foil covered. I had a bunch of little animal stamps, but the cow was the only guy facing the right way. And they when I checked my sticker stash, I found this adorable sheep with the googly eyes!! I hope you enjoy this one. It is going to be hard for me to give it up when Grady's birthday actually gets here!! Hugs to you all, Barb F
