Lego Birthday Card ~ Age Awareness

This card is for a special boy who is battling cancer. I tired (and failed) to copy and paste the link from my FB page here for those interested in his story... he wants cards for his birthday. If you are interested in sending a card, you can hop over to my FB page: The Paper Hen (link in the right hand column). 

I hope this looks like Legos. That is what it is supposed to be. I used 1 3/8" square punch and 1/2" circle punch to create this look. I used dimensionals to pop up the circles.

This stamp set, Age Awareness, is the new clear, photopolymer stamps from Stampin' Up.

Happy Birthday America!

Today I am thankful for the freedoms I have and the opportunities available in this country. Even though I often wonder about some of the choices made in our country, I still am thankful to be here where I can live in freedom. Freedom provided by the countless people who have fought, strived and died to make our country what it is. So today I tip my proverbial hat to America and to its good people...God Bless America.

My latest focus has been on starburst cards. I found a couple of nice little tutorials (linked below) for making these type of cards that have a lot of sophisticated appeal, but in reality are SO easy to create.
