These are for the boys!!

So, I often am asked to make cards for birthdays, holidays, parties, weddings ect. So, this was no different. I was asked to make a birthday card for a little boys first birthday. It's for the grandson of a lady that I work with. Now, you have to understnad, the lady that I work with is the BEST!! She is one of the sweetest, funniest people that I know!! We spend many hours a week together because we share an office and I've really grown to love her!! Trust me - if you knew her you would too!! - So, I wanted to spend a little extra time on this card and here's what I came up with :

It conviently fits into 2 challenges.

The Sketch challenge over at Stampin' Royalty

The animals and the number "1" are cut with my cricut and with suede textured paper. So cute!! I hope she likes it.

And as a bonus - you'll see my next card used the sillouette left from the puppy of the inside (of the birthday card) as the middle focus. The inside of the card reads : Have a dog-gone good day!!

The layout is from the My Grafico Sketch

I chose to use a square instead of a circle.
But I love how this simple card turned out.
And it was all scraps just lying on the table. Gotta love that!!

I'll be back later to post a few more cards!!
