Sunday we had a great time together celebrating David’s 15th birthday. Roast beef dinner, roast potatoes, gravy, broccoli and yorkshire pudding finished off with cherry cheesecake made everyone very happy and VERY full.

I created a card for David using the new Oliver line by Basic Grey. While there are a few young boy papers, the majority will work for any age and I just love the beautiful prints. Oliver and Olivia lines are in stock at Ellen Hutson LLC.


Supplies: Oliver 6×6 paper pad &Β  Oliver Sticker Elements by Basic Grey, Tiny Attacher by Advantus, chipboard letters by Pink Paislee, Kraft Ticket by Maya Road, Tim Holtz Washers & Mini Screwtop Fasteners by Advantus

I thought I’d share one of the birthday photos with you. This one just cracks me up.


How is that for a laugh? My youngest is always full of enthusiasm.

He also LOVES crafting. I have a hard time getting anything done as he always wants to create alongside me. He made this card all by himself using some of my discards and a few items that I was actually saving to use of something else. Oh well!Β  He was so proud of it I just had to take a picture and share.


By the way, he’s five.

Super cute, huh?

Β Take care!

  6. Great cards!! What a wonderful picture, too! My son (who is 5), just made me stop working because he wanted to color some stamped images!! He picked out 5 High Hopes stamps to color and was so proud of his work!! However, he stops at the colored image…he doesn’t stay interested long enough to turn them into cards!! But here’s my daughter’s card…and blog (although she neglected it for almost a year)! She’s 7…


  7. Great card ( I am in such a masculine card slump currently!), and I may even CASE your sons! BUT being a southern Ontarian myself, I can’t believe you had the guts to make a roast beef dinner this July!!!! Ugh! The heat!

  8. Happy 15th David!!
    Love the cards that you and Josh made!!


  9. I love the card you made. The colors are strong and bold. But I especially love the little bling your son added to his own card. How sweet is that!

  10. Such a great card & your son rocked the crafting. πŸ˜‰ You have such handsome boys. πŸ™‚
