Today is my eldest son, David’s birthday. I am having a hard time believing how quickly time goes and that he is 38 years old. Of course, this means I had him at 12 but that is another story. David is a sweet, warm and generous man. He doesn’t like to admit that because he would rather come off as a tough guy but his family knows the truth. He was also the best baby ever. He slept right through the night the first day home from the hospital, rarely cried and was easy to raise. Well at least until he turned nine. I almost gave him away that year!
I made this card using the stamp set called Cool Treats. This set has matching Framelits called Frozen Treats. Both of these items are retiring May 31st. This makes me sad because it truly is one of my favorite sets. It is just fun and summery! I stamped the cone of the ice cream onto Whisper White cardstock and then cut it out using the Lots Of Labels Framelits (**edited to add that these Framelits are no longer available***). Then I cut out a piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock using a bigger Framelit.
The colors I used for this card are Peekaboo Peach (also retiring), Lemon Lime Twist, and Crumb Cake. The Designer Series Paper is called Picture Perfect Party. It is 6″ x6″ and is in the Occasions Catalog. This paper will also be gone come May 31st.
Here are some more cards I made previously using this set in case you need more reasons to buy it before it disappears forever. If you would like to see the details of these cards just click on the Select Category bar and search for Cool Treats. It will bring up all my past posts I made using this set.
Happy Birthday, David!!
