I {heart} birthdays

Paper Makeup Stamps is turning 2 years old! And to celebrate the occasion, we are having a super fun VIP blog hop with the theme "the things we love". The entire design team invited special crafters to play along in this hop. To see everyone involved, please go back to the Paper Makeup Stamps company blog for a master list as well as to enter yourself to win a super fabulous prize!  


Today is my younger son's 11th birthday and I found this perfect sketch at Stamp With Fun for his card.  I have used our favorite colors, which he expects on all of his hand-made cards from me.  {wink}  Gus the Birthday Monster is the type that you just want to cuddle and not run and hide from, haha.

Next you want to hop on over to my special guest's blog {Nancy} and see the sweetest card ever that she's created for you!
