A Wise Owl for a Wise Young Man

My oldest grandson recently turned 9 years old.  Seems like he was just born last week.  We had the traditional family birthday dinner on Easter Sunday.  There was a BIG Easter Egg Hunt in my daughter’s back yard and the kids dyed Easter Eggs too.  As I didn’t want the Easter day activities to out shadow his birthday, I made this card that really fits him.  He loves to read and he is extremely smart. 

When I am making a punch art figure, I squeeze a few drops of Tombow on waxed paper and use a tooth pick to spread glue on the teeny tiny parts.  That’s my tip for the day.

You’re a Gem

You're a Gem

We made this adorable card at my August Stamp Camp. I cased the design from Anne Marie Hile, a fabulous designer. If you're on the fence about purchasing the Just Add Cake designer paper, this card should do the trick. Those butterflies are so darn cute & easy to make. After I made the sample, it dawned on me that instead of using Wild Wasabi ink for the sentiment, why not use Versamark and Wild Wisabi Embossing Powder? So we did!
