PPChallenge #69 & PPA 117

Where did the year go....I can't believe that our little Austin is going to be a year old next week!

Austin is SO much fun, busy, eats anything he can get his hands on and NEVER stops ~

and now he is one!!!

 ~ we are celebrating his birthday on Sunday, I've got Christmas Stack'm cutting it pretty close ~ I'm pleased with my card, I feel that it reflects our little man! He loves bears, and so this was a no brainer...I knew the exact stamp set I'd be using and my card went along with two challenges!
PP#69 had a great sketch to follow ~ thanks girls!

and PPA117 was calling for ribbon! Two fabulous challenges for Austin's birthday card! So Happy Happy Day to our little man! Here's a shot of Austin's card (sorry for the bad picture)

~ and a peek of the inside ~

Sorry for the quick post ~ I'm hoping to come back after the weekend and give you the details for this card ~ if you do have ANY questions, please don't hesitate to drop me a line ~

If you live in Winnipeg or the vicinity and would like to host a party I would love to come and stamp with you and your friends!! Or, if space is an issue, come here and create with me at one of my many clubs or classes! Drop me a line for further info! I'd love to meet you! Enjoy your day!
