Happy Birthday Andrew!

I can not believe I am the mother of a 30 year old son! I can still remember the day he was born.  I was not prepared for the overwhelming love I felt the moment I held him. He recently moved to my home state of Massachusetts for his job.  I am so proud of him and happy that he is embracing this new adventure. We traveled to visit him (and my family) for Easter and celebrated his milestone birthday.  Here’s the card I made.


Every year I  give him a package of E.L. Fudge cookies for his birthday. I craved them when I was pregnant. Do you know how many cookies come in a package?  The fact that I know this could account for the 50 pounds I gained during my pregnancy.  I joked that he was going to be born looking like the Keebler Elf.  The colors of this card reminded me of those cookies…chocolate and vanilla.  Yum!

My card base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.  The Designer Series Paper is from Urban Underground Specialty DSP and measures 2 1/4 x 3 3/4.  I added a layer of Basic Black 1/8″ larger.  The sentiment is from Milestone Moments and stamped in Delightful Dijon and Basic Black on a piece of 2 x 3 3/8 Very Vanilla cardstock.  The Basic Black layer is 2 1/8 x 3 1/2.  I added some linen thread and adhered the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added three White Perfect Accents which I colored with a Black Sharpie marker.
