Happy Monday and we’re back in Maryland from a fun weekend! Tomorrow is Will’s actual Birthday and I do hope that you will pop in because it will be an amazing BLOG CANDY for one lucky person….who ever gets it will be doing a big happy dance…and trust me, all day on Tuesday I will be thinking about the wonderful memories and years that Will has brought to my life! I adore being a Mom!

I know that there many, many times that you get stuck on masculine cards…well, I have one for you today and I will also give you the measurements because I do hope that you CASE it as it is a keeper. This is the first time I have blogged with this stamp set, Milestone Moments but trust me, it is one to look at….and take it seriously!

I know that it is super hard to find stamps that have “key” milestone moments and I love that so many bases are covered, just like the word “thirtieth” but also I adore the font in the “happy” etc….but the ICING ON THE CAKE is the fact that it is photopolymer, clearly my stamp of choice!

 

 

 

 

 

I have made cards like this in the past using (2) pieces of card stock at a certain size (3 1/2″ X 3 3/4″) and then the sentiment piece is (1 3/4″ X 4″ ) and then matted with (1 7/8″ X 4 1/8″)…are the sizes of the card today!

This layout is a classic and one that when you are trying to “over think” – do this! It will make you have easier day…. 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

After I did the stamping I thought that there was just too much white (now that’s unusual) so I took a sliver, actually a strip that is 1/8″ wide in the Navy and just added it as shown to break it up! Can you see…it is still so simple yet classic!

 

 

 

 

A great card could not be without a great envelope! This paper is a freebie from SAB and I adore Navy as to me – Navy can go with just about any card and when you add an accent color, it makes it even that more special and classic!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let’s have a great week! Can you believe that the calendar will be changing already – YIKES….March! Hang on….it is still February and tomorrow you will want to pop back to celebrate Will’s 30th birthday to have the chance to win some BLOG CANDY!!!!!

I just love being the “candy man” as when there are things in life to celebrate – I say “LET’S DO IT THE RIGHT WAY”
