Howdy! Today's post is all about fun! It is a memorable day here... it is Tuco's and Ammo's First Birthday!! When I realized that it was this weekend, I thought it would be fun to have Tuco, mail Ammo a birthday card. Yes I am a dork. (Our first dog after Craig and I married I threw a birthday party and invited all our family and friends. We had cake, hats presents and a BBQ! Seriously we did and Yes I am a Dork!) But back to now... I had so much fun making Ammo's card and sending it. But first I thought it would be great to see a then and now of the boys -
I can hardly believe it has been a year! Remember how Ammo was three times the size of Tuco? I called Ammo Tank, and I had to supplement feed Tuco with and eye dropper because he was so little and couldn't get in to eat. Now... he has no problems, he gets right in there and eats just fine. I asked Ammo's new Mommy and Daddy to message me over a photo of Ammo now. He looks so much like his big sister Chica doesn't he? Except for those freckles.. I love that he still has those!
So last week I went to work on a birthday card from Tuco to Ammo - again DORK here!! I love how it came out!
First I started out with one of my favorite Whimsy images - Crissy's Digi - Dog Song. I colored him up to sort of look like Tuco. Can't you hear him "singing" happy birthday? I cut him out so I could pop him on the front of the card. Then I created the banner. LOVE the banner! All Whimsy - the banner stamps are called "Celebration Pennants" then they are cut out with the matching dies "Banner Pennants Die Set" OH this is so much fun! I ran a piece of twine through the top of the banners to attach them all.
For the papers - How perfect are these papers? - I flipped through a new 6x6 pad Farm House "Fair Skies" (I have one left in my eBay store ) Love the Farm House papers, they are so me. I found the pennant paper in the stack and knew I had to use it. Added a EK Success border punch on top and bottom. Found two other papers... the blue gingham is just so boy, and the musical sheet well hello... Tuco is singing Happy Birthday! So perfect. Sewed everything together, attached it all then Cut out "Ammo" from a Sizzix Alphabet die. I flew through making this card! It just went together all on its own. I did just about the same for the inside - but I added a special inside from all of us -
Told you it was a special day! I am thinking we need to at least get Tuco a big Chew bone or something today - wonder what Ammo will be getting? I am sure they have something planned for him, I know he is spoiled with love and treats too!
Hope it all made you smile - :0)
Have a great Sunday - I'll be back tomorrow with a High Hope Release Hop!
