Happy Birthday Christopher!

Hello everyone and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner.
Today is a special day - it's my oldest son's birthday.
Happy Birthday Christopher!

I finally got a chance to play with a few of the stamps and dies I just received from the latest release over at My Creative Time.  This release is just awesome and made it pretty easy to put this simple card together.....

* I started off with these masculine papers from the Authentique "Curiosity Collection".  I distressed and inked up the edges, then used my sewing machine to stitch around the edges.
*The calendar is from the "Type Calendar" stamp set - I LOVE this set!
* I used the "Stitched Mini Frame & Arrow Die" set to highlight today's special date.  I stamped the word "celebrate" onto the bottom of my frame using the "Teeny Tag Greetings" stamp set.
* The star is from my stash of embellishments. I colored it with my Copic marker to match and stamped the number 23 in the center.

* I used a Copic marker to color my seam binding to match and tied it off to one side.
* The stick pin is from "Little Yellow Bicycle"
* I also used the "Stitched Heart Layering Dies" to create the little hearts in the corner.

And there you go!  I guess I need to apologize to my son because this card is still sitting on my craft table!  Sorry Christopher - it goes in the mail tomorrow!
Until next time,
