CCMC421 Masculine Birthday


Happy Monday, peeps!  Hope you had a great weekend!  We went to a birthday party/picnic/fish fry yesterday to celebrate my nephew's birthday, so I used the Create with Connie & Mary sketch for his card:
 CCMC421
I chose some papers from the Serene Scenery 6x6 pad and paired it with Gorgeous Grunge and Perfectly Wrapped:


My sentiment is from a past Paper Pumpkin kit; I added some Soft Sky stars to break up the "brown-ness", and a few candy dots for simple embellishments, and for the horizontal element, a little sliver of Crumb Cake was stamped with the arrow stamp from Perfectly Wrapped. I distressed it with a bone folder and popped it up with some dimensionals!


John gave Cassidy a bank for her birthday; there were sections for tithing, saving and spending! Need to get her in the habit early!  She had fun putting the stickers on:



The finished product:


We took all the money out of her piggy bank, separated each set of coins into groups of ten, then she put one coin in the church (tithing) portion; four coins in the store (spending) portion; and five coins in the bank (savings) portion.  She hasn't quite grasped the concept that she could actually spend part of her money yet....although I am sure she will figure it out soon enough!


Thanks for visiting today!
