CCMC414 and PPA308 Birthday for Emma


Happy Saturday, peeps!  I took a couple days off from my blog and went to visit my dad at the Delaware shore!  It was a nice little break!  But today we have a birthday party for my niece's youngest....she is an Irish twin!  I had never heard of that expression before, but little Emma and her older sister Lucy will both be one year old for about six weeks, until Lucy celebrates her second birthday in August!  My niece is a trooper, keeping up with these two!  They're adorable!  Anyway, I thought the colors from Create with Connie and Mary were fun and fresh:

CCMC414

And I matched them up with the Pals Paper Arts sketch from my sweet friend Ann:
ppa308

I realized I don't have many "kids" stamps, so I pulled out my old standby, Storybook Friends, and some new Fruit Stand papers:


I stamped the image with Stazon and added some coloring with markers, then a sentiment from the same set at the bottom, along with one from an older Paper Pumpkin set at the top:


I made a "faux" candy dot with a little circle stamp and some Itty Bitty Accents Epoxy Stickers!  I also stamped the same dot and a little flower from Itty Bitties on the DSP!  Finally, the inside was stamped with a sentiment and candle from Sweet Stuff.  Oh, and I did add a Tangelo Twist ribbon too!


At one year old, I am sure Emma will be more interested in her gift than the card, but it was still fun to make!  Thanks for popping in today!

Cassidy is still on vacation, but I did hear she finally learned to ride her bike without training wheels!  Woohoo!

  2. Hi there!! You went to the Delaware shore, I went to Virginia Beach! So much catching up to do!! I took a run back through all of the fabulous cards, I've missed while away. The button card is ever so sweet and that little submarine is too cute. Your birthday card for Emma is darling. I've never heard that expression before. It does sound like your niece has her hands full!! Mine has a 20 month old and 4 month old identical twins, all boys ~ EEK!! Oh and I love your sailboat ColourQ card too. Cute photo of you with you sister and I always love seeing Cassidy!!

  5. This is just too cute, LeAnne! I love this duck and had forgotten all about that stamp set. He looks like he is bringing a big 'ole birthday greeting to that special 1 year old too. The colors are all perfect together too. Glad you had a nice beach get-away!

  6. I just love this card LeAnne - that duck is just too cute and perfect for a first birthday card! I'm sure Emma will love it (or rather your niece will appreciate it!) Irish twins, what an unusual expression! I thought I was mad at times with two under two - two under one, wowsa! Glad you enjoyed your bloggy break - we all need one of those from time to time and Delaware sounds lovely! Thanks for joining us over at Create With Connie and Mary this week!
