Happy 5th Birthday

Hope your Saturday is going well. The Little Guy and I drove up to Oakland earlier today for my nephew's 5th birthday party. Here's the card I made for him.

The card uses kraft cardstock and Cosmo Cricket paper. I used my Silhouette to make my own chipboard again. I created the 5 using the Rockwell Extra Bold font on my computer. I cut out the numbers several times from Kraft cardstock and glued the layers together. I also used the Silhouette to cut the number out from Cosmo Cricket paper.

The other news, my techie husband stayed home to wait for UPS to deliver his iPad. It arrived about an hour ago. I can hear him and my son oohing and aahing over the device downstairs. What a cute pair of nerds! I'm off to play with the iPad too.

Thanks for stopping by!
