Happy Monday everyone and hope you had a wonderful weekend. I did some cleaning in my craft room, but before I finished, I had to make this card for this weeks Monday Lunchtime Sketch. My grandson will be one next week and this coming Saturday we are going to Virginia for his birthday party. I had purchased some of these recordable cards from the Stampin' Up! Clearance rack (actually 4 since I have 4 grandchildren) and this is the first time decorating them. I really like the way it turned out. So now you can see what they look like decorated.
I really did like Mary Jo's sketch this week and knew I would use this cup cake builder punch along with the stamp set to do this card. I also used the Birthday Basics designer paper and the banners framelits. Now the Happy Birthday embossing folder I used is one of my first and oldest and it was one I purchased the day I got my cuddlebug years ago before Stampin' Up! started selling the embossing folders. But I had to use it on this card since it was a first birthday.
Now for the inside of the card!
I used the Memorable Moments to say Happy 1st Birthday, and I also used the #1 as the candle on the front of the card. And as my dear friend Nancy says, I fussy cut the #1 out and popped it up a little. Love that Nancy!!! So now my husband and I need to record message on here for my grandson. Hopefully he will be able to keep it for a long while.
Now don't forget to stop by Mary Jo's blog and check out the other DT samples along with hers. Hope you have a wonderful and blessed week.
