Happy 9th Birthday Zack!!!!

My oldest grandson, Zack's birthday was April 9th and he turned 9!!!! He's a great guy and I have sew much fun playing and teasing him!!!! NOW, making a card for a 9-year old presented a challenge tome as he is no longer the "kid" type card nor is he a teenager and trying to make something age appropriate presented the challenge but finally I came up with what I'm hoping was the purrfect card!!! (Of course, putting a gift card inside for Toys R Us ensures it was a homerun!)

  • card was cut 6 x 12 inches using DCWV The Countdown Stack which of course was then scored at 6 inches and then folded in half and chalked around the edges
  • background paper was cut 5.25 x 5.25 inches with the other background set as a "diamond" was cut 4 x 4 inches using DCWV Girl Stack which was a find at the register at Joann Fabrics and Crafts for $4 - this stack not only has great "girlie" designs but also some great ones that can be using for the male gender!!!
  • cupcakes were cut using Recollections Cupcake Punch
  • Deacon Cake from BugaBoo Designs and colored using Spectrum Noir and Prisma Markers with Prisma Colored Pencils and fussy cut around the edges and puff-dotted on the card
  • birthday sentiments were from Create with TLC which were chalked around the edges. One of my very most favorite sentiments that Create with TLC has at her store, Birthday a Treat Sentiment, is purrfect for young and old alike! "Do I Smell Cake?" had previously been offered as freebies on the blog
God Bless and thanks for stopping by today. I appreciate and love reading your comments . . is your comment the next one I read??? 

Much love, hugs, and friendship
