This is for Caleb who is turning 2 in a week. Caleb was born very prematurely at 1 pound 9 ounces - a "micro-preemie". He spent 145 days in the NICU. And he is now doing fabulously - he's still little - only 20 pounds. But he has been released from all early intervention therapies.One of his favorite characters is Mickey Mouse, and his parents are celebrating with a Mickey Mouse themed birthday party.
Isn't he the cutest thing? (I am prejudice). And his personality is amazing -- always smiling and happy. Although his mom reports that is he is becoming a "typical 2 year old" and beginning to really express his wishes, and not always in an easy manner . If you know any 2 year olds, you know what I mean!
I used the sketch from Retro Rubber (RRCB37)
The sentiment was a combination of Happy Birthday from PTI (over a year or more old) , the number from a Studio G set (2008) and the "nd" from a Stampendous set Fifteen Candles (also 2008)-- embossed with black diamond embossing powder.
I'm also putting this into the challenge at Through the Purple Haze where you need to add a number. They are celebrating their 100th challenge!! Congrats to them!
The challenge this week at Brown Sugar is "For the Boys". (BSCB-195) Caleb is all boy -- loves to play with things that move, turn and spin - to try to see how it works. I predict he will work with his hands one day or perhaps be a type of engineer.
Over at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge it is Anything Goes - try to use Stampendous Stamps
I had a great time making this card - and I was pleased at how quickly I was able to put this together. I am usually a very slow crafter.
The sun is shining - I'm of to enjoy a bit of it. Hope you are having a great day. Thanks for looking!
