Wednesday Greeting

Happy Wednesday!

As I have mentioned before, I leave the house at 5:45 a.m. for work.  I never see my kids in the morning and most of the time I am fine about that but sometimes I HATE it.  Last Friday was one of those days because it was Jack's birthday.  I hate that I can't give him a big birthday hug and kiss.  So what I do is I decorate the kitchen table with handmade things!  This is what Jack saw for his first birthday card.  I used a 12x12 sheet of kraft cardstock and I used my Silhouette to to cut out everything. I used the negative space backed the space using Jillibean Soup Staples 2.  I loved all the polka dots!.  I used my sewing machine and did some messy sewing and then stamped some balloons and attached them with some fun twine from The Stingery
Jack loved this!!  When I picked him up from school he said he loved it and he had already pinned it to his bulletin board in his room!

supplies
cardstock- bazzill
paper- jillibean soup

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will have a new layout to share tomorrow.  I will see you then!
Have a wonderful and crafty day!

I think the negative space is a cool idea. I've also seen it backed with rows of washi (so you could have two color stripes for one word--does that make sense)

Janet Zeppa said...

A wonderful idea!

Great card.
