A Sketch for Paxton

Hello!

I combined the Pals Paper Arts #221 Sketch Challenge with a card I need for my grandson, Paxton, in Colorado!  He'll be two years old on October 1st ...so hard not to be there with him on that important day!

Here is the sketch:

The first stamp set I thought of (of course, because the card is for Paxton)...was Zoo Babies...I knew the little animals would fit beautifully into small squares and be perfect for my favorite little boy!


I selected the Confetti Celebration designer paper because of its "wild" look..thought it would fit the animal theme.  And then matched up a couple of the colors for stamping the critters!


I backed up the squares with Basic Gray card stock and pulled them together with a Cajun Craze button.  Inside the card, I ran a horizontal strip of the designer paper.

The Memorable Moments stamp set has some great numbers for birthdays wishes...and the flagged ends were snipped with scissors.


Here are the products I used for this project:

Happy New Home

My neighbor (and one of my Stampin' Up! customers) recently moved to a city nearby (Boo-hoo and yet I'm happy for her!).  I sent this card to her and her family to let them know I so appreciate that they were good neighbors and to wish them well!

What better stamp set to use than Holiday Home with matching Homemade Holiday Framelits Dies!

I'm so glad that Stampin' Up! included a message to use for people who move,  however there are other images focusing on the holidays that are so cute!  

The designer paper is from Trim the Tree DSP stack, however I did not mean the card to look like a Christmas card!  I just wanted some Cherry Cobbler to match the heart on the house!


I colored the house with Blendabilities....hoping the Natural color would look like stucco...what do you think?  All the colors are mentioned below in the Products List.  I daubered (is that a word?) the grass with Pear Pizzaz and used some matching cotton ribbon.
