Congrats! Its A Girl! CDAC PC #14

Here we are again...
Up to CDAC PC #14 wow! I am a little behind getting these done this go-around. I am usually on the ball. My grandson had his 1st Birthday on the 18 (scroll down my blog for a couple photos) It was an awesome day...Then I went on a day road trip with hubby and we stopped at a Hobby Lobby!! That was fun! I got a set of punches by McGill that makes roses and that's what this flower is from in the this card!
So I used the My Little Toys digi from A Day For Daises, decided to do it as a New Baby card! I also got some Bakers Twine at Hobby lobby that I used in this card as well! The Rose was sprayed with bubble gum glimmer mist and given a clear coat of glimmer mist as well! The sentiment was stamped with glue and then I added the pink glitter to it!

Happy 1st Birthday Grandson!


Today is my grandson's 1st birthday! WOW!!! where did the year go!
Here is the card I made for him! I will get it back from mommy and daddy
to be sure it gets into my scrapbook for him!
He really love tigger and his birthday party theme is going to be
Winnie The Pooh so i figured how appropriate...All the little stars are
punched from glitter card stock, and the matting is glitter card stock too. The image
I am not sure where I got that from it was in my digi file but I love it! The Sentiment is
one that was in my file as well but I tweaked it by adding the "1st" and his Name!
Entering this gem in the following Challenges:

PS... so I am posting this late, I had a bad night last night with pain from my knee and didn't get post finished up, so we have had the birthday party today and it was a blast! All the family was there, was a totally awesome afternoon! He got some good presents and some cute outfits to wear this summer!!!
He really enjoyed his cake, it was Chocolate with butter cream icing. He wouldn't at first pick it up he would just lean over into it and bite!! It was soooo cute!!!

So that is my Grandson's 1st Birthday!!
