Happy birthday, nephew!

One of my nephews has a birthday this week. He'll be 12. It feels impossible, since I remember vividly holding my sister's hand while she was delivering him, surely no more than a few weeks ago. Her husband and I couldn't believe this tiny miracle had finally arrived!

Now, that tiny miracle wears bigger shoes than his dad and is about as tall :-). No more cartoon characters for this tween -- he needed a card that was contemporary, fun, but not at all childish.

I've been showing a lot of cards that use the pennant dies lately. Can you tell they're my go-to at the moment? I love how easy it is to create a nice crisp matte for a sentiment -- and how well they work for card of all kinds. Here, I've matched the arrow of the pennant with some arrow-fledging patterned paper for a coordinated look.

Now, to find the perfect gift for this not-quite-a-teen -- if only THOSE came in coordinated packages!



  • Pool Party base
  • Sahara Sand, cut to 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Sweet Sorbet DSP, cut to 5 1/8" x 3 7/8" (I just scootched up an eighth from my normal 1/4" matte -- this is from the new Spring Occasions catalog)
  • Scrap Sahara Sand and Whisper White for die cutting


  • Crisp Canteloupe
  • Pistachio Pudding
  • Pool Party
  • Staz-On Black

Stamp sets

  • Big Wish (Spring Occasions catalog)


  • Pennant dies
  • Candy buttons in black
  • Dimensionals
