I have always loved the vintage style of Graphic 45! I remember the first time they showcased their product at CHA. It was a tiny booth but cute and quaint....all right before they became total rockstars! I was in love immediately!
I would normally have chosen papers from a more feminine line, but I wanted to make a card for a special little boy.
You may have heard of Danny, who just turned 5, who has an inoperable brain tumor. His one wish for his birthday was to get lots of cards. And LOTS of cards he received!
I used papers from the Good Ol' Sport collection. I added touches of German Glass Glitter in gold. I added Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D foam stars. They got a generous coating of glitter as well!
I added several sequins using my Dodz™ and rustic twine. The added baseball images were adhered using Scrapbook Adhesives Foam tape in white.

Now she is two years old, 25 lbs, healthy and happy. We love her to pieces!
Be sure to stop by on Friday! I will be participating in a Graphic 45 blog hop with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L!
Have a great day my friends!

I have a few misc things to share with you today.
First, I have a Crafty Secrets card that was created using a pretty digital image. (I apologize, but I am unable to link to the image. For some reason I can not find it and have e-mailed Sandy for its location!) It was colored using my Inktense Pencils. I added a light blue rectangle matte behind the image using a Spellbinder's die, Decorative Labels Eight.
The bee is a sticker from Mrs. Grossman's. I added a fun button, string, and a few sequins to finish off the card.
I have always loved photography and now that I have my new camera I am going nuts taking pictures. So I hate to tell you all....but expect to see more pictures on the ole' blog. ;)
I took pictures of my good friend's grandson. It was very impromptu, but all you need is a soft fuzzy blanket, evening light to make his eyes sparkle, and crazy woman with a camera!
Her next door neighbor had a litter of puppies and I grabbed my camera to shoot some of these little guys. (and girls!)
Who doesn't like a few good puppy shots?
And yes, these two are from the same litter. All pups look completely different from one another.
Thanks for stopping by and allowing me to share with you!
Off for a bike ride and to take more (yes MORE) photos with my son today!
He is taking a photography class this year and I am hoping it ignites a passion for pictures in him.
(Then maybe he won't whine so much when I take pics of him!)
Have a great day!
