Happy Birthday, David!

Five years ago today my life changed forever with the birth of my grandson, David.
I just adore that little guy.  We have a great bond and I know as he grows up he'll have less time for his "Omie" (that's me) but I hope he will remember some good and special times we've had together.

Today he is having his birthday party at that awful place that kids love and parents don't Chuck E. Cheese.  LOL!  Actually I don't really mind it as much now as when my own kids were small.  It seems a little cleaner and more secure and it is fun watching the kids have a great time.

I decided to make a total Silhouette card for him and I found this cute card file at the Silhouette Online Store.  It's by Snapdragon Snippets and is Design ID #63814 for the Silhouette users out there.

 It's a bifold card.
You can see what I mean a bit better here:
 and here:
 I used some Paper Trey Ink and Echo Park papers as well as some American Crafts Cardstock I had on hand.
The Silhouette did a wonderful job with the many layers of cuts.  I kept a little cup nearby to put all the pieces in as I cut them so as not to lose any little pieces like I usually do.
I added some sequin stars adhered with Glossy Accents.
 The "5" was cut out five times (it's a metal die from My Favorite Things Die-Namics) I cut it out 5 times and adhered them together to give a bit more dimension.

I was amazed at how well the sentiment cut out.  The Silhouette rarely disappoints me.  

It was a fun break from stamping for me.  Something a bit different for me, as well.

I hope you like it, too!

Happy Crafting and HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAVID!


  1. Fun & especially for me since the pilot in me is fond of airplanes; especially biplanes that do aerobatic stunts. Like the colors you chose. Happy 5th Bday to David. Like the photo of David.

  2. Guess what! I love Chuck E. Cheese! =) Actually, I haven't been in years, but they used to have the best birthday cakes. I remember clearly when David was born. What a cute card!

  3. It is hard to believe David is 5---just seems like yesterday that he was born. What a cutie pie...and a darling card. Before you know it, he will be Colin's age and planning for college. I told Holly today as I was catching up on event dates for the calendar...that I didn't want the graduation date....YIKES.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I appreciate the time it took you to leave me a note and I will enjoy reading it. Happy Crafting!
