My Nephew Turns Eleven

Monday, April 17, 2017 / Leave a Comment
I have recently started a new business venture and it has been taking up ALL of my time lately.  Pair that with a part time job and a full time household to manage and it doesn't leave you with much time to do anything let alone stamp.  *sniffle*

My nephew is turning eleven on Monday and since I am having to miss his birthday party today, and his birthday on Monday, we met up for a special pre-birthday lunch for him yesterday afternoon.



I love being an aunt and I love my nephews more than they know.  To show my love, I stayed up WAY too late Thursday night (or should I say VERY early Friday morning) putting together this card to show my sweetie how much his Cici adores him.


I am SO sad that Carousel Birthday is retiring from Stampin' Up!  It has to be one of my favorites from the Occasions catalog this year and I hate that it didn't make it to the annual catalog.  BUT that doesn't stop me from giving it more love. ;) 

This week's Mojo Monday sketch was the perfect sketch to show off my Cupcakes & Carousels designer paper (which sadly is also retiring).  I sponged each panel with Chocolate Chip to give it a more grunge feel.  The sentiment is also stamped in Chocolate Chip onto Whisper White cardstock and used the Triple Banner Punch to create the banner.  



I recently purchased the Large Number Framelit Dies and I couldn't wait to put them to use!  I added a few gold sequins to give the card some bling but still keep it more boyish.  Making masculine cards is SO hard but my nephew loved it.  He also loved the "present" that was inside. ;) 

Happy birthday my sweet Payday! Cici loves you!! xoxo
