Birthday Card for 2 Yr Boy

I was requested by a co-worker to make a birthday card for a friends 2 year old birthday.  I have made cards for her in the past and she continues to come back, guess she likes my cards...which makes me feel good.  I love to create and cards is one way I can do that on a weekly basis.  I hope you enjoy this card, I used Close to My Heart products, paper, ink, and stamps.  As well as Liquid glass on the number two.  I used my cuddlebug and the birthday embossing folder on 3/4 of the card front.  I stamped the design on the green part on front, for a fun pattern.  The ribbon, I had in my stash and have no idea where it came from...but I am thinking SEI.  Robert helped me with the qoute inside the card, I couldnt think of anything to write or find anything on the internet...I used to have a site I visited for qoutes, but couldnt find it again.

Comments Problem Fixed

At least I hope it  If you have tried to leave a comment I learned it was being difficult.  I am still learning blogger so a new friend suggested I try something and I did.  I am hoping this works!  Haha..if you can let me know....I love feedback on all my posts!

New Paper Tower

My sweet hunny made me a paper tower for my papers, however we still need a some more slats, so Lowe's trip tomorrow and I will need another tower as I have more
We started out with long boards of mdf...and hardboard for slats.
I primed the outside with a dark color in error, but didnt want to waste so I used it.  I only primed the outsides and a little in, as the paper would hide the sides and bottom. (once filled with paper) He measured the holes 1 1/2" apart and we added dowels cut into 2" pieces...he drilled holes all the way thru both sides to insure proper placement.

I ended up painting, painting it this cream color, as we bought paint from the discount bin...only paid $3 for a gallon, which will be good to coordinate the other items in my room...and another tower.  We need more slats like I mentioned before, but each tower will hold 32 colors.

I put my blocks on the bottom for now, the cuddle bug has found its 
And here is the rest of my colors, and this my friends is why I need another

So many different colors...but I love having the choices and I still need more colors!

Friday Afternoon Blog Crawling

I am sitting here at my "regular" on my blogs and facebook....and found a Blog Crawl with Bella. Shhh!!! I am caught up with work, so I thought I would check it out...I love these srapping blog crawls, not just for the prizes, but meeing new bloggers for one. I have found my passion for scrapping and making cards. To me a handmade card is so much more then one bought at the store...I even made them when I was younger for people and my daddy. And I didnt even no about scrapping when I was younger, of course we are talking about the 70's and 80's. A friend of mine was telling me she made her son a scrapbook for christmas of his twin daughters first year. And as she was describing to me the book, as I am in another state now, I thought how beautiful it must be. She said Denise, I dont have all of that stuff you have or tools. I told her you dont need to have everything under the sun in scrapbooking supplies to make a beautiful scrapbook. A scrapbook is about what your vision is, not what anyone elses is. She did buy some things of course! Who could resist in reality! Her daughter-n-law cried when she seen it. As I look over these blogs, I see beautiful work with minimal supplies, and they are gorgeous. But I have to admit, I wouldnt mind winning more supplies, cause to me, can we ever have "enough?", not in my Well I will posting some more art on Sunday, made a few things last week but didnt post. Everyone have a great craft weekend, and remember to get outside and make memories to scrap.
