Happy 7th Birthday, Jonah

Hey blog peeps! Today we went to a birthday party for one of our favorite young friends, Jonah, who turns 7 this week. My Little Guy had a great time with his friends getting drenched with water guns, a water slide, and a Slip 'N Slide.

I made this card really fast this morning because I didn't have time to work on it this week. I used my Silhouette digital cutter to cut out the circle and the number 7. I love that you can use the fonts located on your computer with the Silhouette. The number 7 is in a cool font called Bodoni MT. You can't tell from the photo, but I cut the number 7 several times from Kraft cardstock and glued them together to create my own chipboard. I then cut the Cosmo Cricket paper out and adhered it to the chipboard.

I want to wish one of my best friends, Cris, Happy Birthday today. I didn't have time to make her a card.

I can't help but think about today and what our country went through on September 11th, 2001. Thankfully, we have little ones and celebrations for loved ones in our lives to show us that life goes on. My thoughts and prayers are with all the innocent individuals and their families who are forever changed by September 11th. Peace, my dears!
