Will's Belated Birthday Card


My sister in SC just called me....."Did you remember your nephew's birthday today?"  OOPS!!!  I always have fun sending cards and goodies to my DS's family--just too many things going on this week and last week.  So I got busy and made a very simple card using SU's new Sweet Centers set:


Edited to add:  This set, the cups and padded envelopes are all available from Stampin'Up! through my website.  You can click here to see the details!  I saw this cool post on Mike's blog (yes, HE is a SU demonstrator!) and I thought it was genius!!!  So I adapted it for the balloon image, although as soon as my nephew pulls that tag, I am sure M&Ms will be all over the place!!!  I had a chance to use my new-to-me set, On Your Birthday for the inside, along with some balloons from Sock Monkey:

DSCF5271  Of course, I will add a little something extra inside to make up for forgetting his birthday!   SU sells special padded envelopes as well just to send these little puppies out!  Gotta get this in the mail, so if you have questions, let me know---I'm not going to post the recipe!
Stop back tomorrow for the CTD and Diva Challenges!  Eeek, I'd better get busy, huh?!  And here is a photo of the birthday boy from a couple years ago, with Grand-daddy looking on!!  (That's a crayfish from our creek!)  Cute little thing!!!  Love ya, Will!
