Happy Birthday Christopher!

Hello and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner!
Today I have a very special card to share with is my oldest son's birthday!  Christopher turns 30 years old today!  Now, I don't have a problem with the fact that he is turning 30....but....the fact that I am old enough to have a 30 year old son is bothering me just a bit!  Oh well, what ya gonna do? 

Happy Birthday Christopher!

There are 30 candles on this card!  Yep....30!  I managed to squeeze them all in.
The candles are from Birthday Bash and are cut at 2 inches.  I used the stamp set Simply Everything from Pink By Design for my sentiment.  I added Diamond Stickles to the candle flames and a couple of skittles to the sentiment tag.

Here you can see the sentiment a little cute! 

I also decorated the inside of the card just in case he needs a reminder...

Now...(he's not gonna be happy over this), I want to share with you this sweet picture taken when my sweet baby boy (gonna hate that too) was only 3 months old...
Now...I ask cute is he?

And now here he is, 30 years later, all grown up with a family of his own....
I love these guys!

So, thanks for stopping by today and sharing Christopher's birthday with me!
Until next time,


  1. I like the card Tanya! It's always hard for me to make "manly" cards. Hope your son has a great birthday!

  2. Ahhh love the 30 candles! I fear you are fibbing about his age---you have a 30 year old...never ;) Great card--love the size!

  3. I hope he has a wonderful birthday!!! Your card is awesome - I can't believe you cut out 30 candles - it looks like soooo much work!

    At least you don't look old enough to have a 30 year old! :-) Hugs to you! sweet Mommy!

  4. This is so cute! I love the candles! So awesome! I am now following your blog. It is so cute and has great projects!

  5. You are WAYYYYY to young to have a 30 yr. old son! (Just sayin')! And the card for him is Fabulous! I love that you got all 30 candles on the card and the stickles really make the flames POP! I also LOVE the CUTE picture of him when he was a baby.... It just puts a smile on your face! I wish him a very Happy Birthday! :o)

  6. I have a Christopher who's going to be turning 30 in November...and my BABY just turned 25 last week...UGH! So I know exactly what you're saying! I don't feel old enough to have kids that age either! Oh well...we'll just continue to grow old gracefully...NOT!!!

  7. I so love all of those candles!!!! Both of our children are over 30, so I can relate!! Love the photos!! :)

  8. Wow, how ambitious of you to have 30 candles on the card! TFS!

  9. Great card, I love all the candles you fit onto it! I am sure he loved it very much! And you do not look at all like you have a 30 year old!

  10. Happy Birthday to your son!!! The sentiment 'So many candles, so little cake!' from Take the Cake would have been great for this card too!! I've been wanting to use that sentiment and this card has totally inspired me!!
