Sweet Sunday Birthday Boy

Yesterday was my littlest man's 3rd Birthday!  Officially no more babies or toddlers in this house :( Here's the cute card that I made him.  I had bought the paper and felties knowing exactly what I would do with them.  My pet name for my son is Little Monster because he is just that.  He's a very busy boy who doesn't like to sleep or sit still and he's into everything.  He's a very curious and vivacious boy.  Also very charismatic and honest which gets him out of heaps of trouble   

About a month a go he hit one of the little girls I babysit for and of course I put him in a time out to think about things. Once I was done consoling the little girl and making sure she wasn't seriously hurt, I went to my son to have a little chat.  I asked him "Why did you hit her?" and his response "I can't tell you."  Of course I prodded and asked why he couldn't tell me.  His exact final response: "Because I have no reason." And the way he said it, so sincerely with his hands in the air and was all I could do not to laugh!!!

Anyhow, lets get to the card.  I used Karen's lovely Sweet Sunday Sketch because it had that fabulously large focus panel to stick the monsters to.  The October Afternoon dp I stumbled on when searching an online sale.  It was too cute not to and the wonderful part is that it matches Pacific Point which I never use and have a few sheets still waiting to be used.  I added some cross-stitching, swiss dot, and trimmed edging. Isn't it cute???

Thankfully we are all feeling better around here.  No more fevers!!!  Hope you are all healthy and happy.  Happy crafting!

Paper: Old Olive, Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla, Night light louie dp (October Afternoon)
Ink: computer.
Accessories: Felt monsters (saffarass), orange cotton floss, pinking sheers, perfect polkadots ef.
