Thanks to all of you who expressed good wishes for Dad and his miracle. I still worry for him because at 90 years old, anything could happen. Not to say that nothing would happen to you at any age. It's so comforting for me to know that I have so many friends out there who shared their love and concern. You guys mean the world to me.
Today, my baby turns 15 years old. It's hard for me to believe how fast time flies. I can still remember the day he was born and because girls run in our family (I have 2 sisters, and they have 2 girls each), I thought I was having a girl...we didn't know what to expect with a boy, LOL!
On to my card! I'm sharing another card that we made at the class. We used square punches and cut them in half for the sailboat and also the 1 3/4" circle punch and cut it it half. The "water" was created with a sponge. We used the top note die and the lots of dots embossing folder to add texture to the not quite navy cardstock. A taffeta bow added the finishing touch. The sentiment came from the Nursery Necessities stamp set. Here's the inside...the foot came from a retired set, but I love this foot!
The kits are all done (thanks to some help from Joy!) except for me putting on the foam tape on the shaker card. I couldn't think of a better way to mail the foam tape strips with the kit except to put it on the card for you, so as soon as they are affixed, I will mail the kits. The photos should help you assemble the cards as they are all stamped and pieces are ready to go.
Thanks again for stopping by today!

Oh my goodness! Your baby boy is turning out to be a grown adult! I can't fathom what it'll be like when my kiddies hit the teen years . . . I have to shackle them down for sure! :) Great baby boy card and you can always count on Joy for help. She's a ball of energy! :)
