Welcome to a surprise Birthday Blog Hop for Caleb, my Design Team buddy over at The Scrapbooking Queen's Castle. You can visit Caleb on his blog, and wish him a Happy Birthday if you want. I know he'd love that. His blog is KIDS FOR CARDS.
If you arrived here from JILLIAN, then you're right on track! If not, start at the beginning with Theresa - The Scrapbooking Queen.
I have some BLOG CANDY up for grabs! But first, here is the birthday card I made for Caleb:
Recipe: Card base cut at 4.5 by 11 and folded in half. Stampin Up Cherry Cobbler cardstock was cut at 4 1/4 by 5 1/4 for the background mat and embossed with the Diamond Cuttlebug embossing folder. The adorable CROWN was purchased at Michaels in the Embellishment section and it is made by Recollections. The strip for the sentiment was cut at 3/4 inch by five inches and layered on the background mat. The red diamond stones are from my stash. The sentiment, "Happy Birthday, Prince" is from the Prince's Birthday stamp set from The Scrapbooking Queen's ROYAL SHOPPE.
Caleb is The Prince of our Royal Court and he makes the greatest cards you have ever seen. I think Caleb is going to be a famous artist one day because he is so creative and he has a great eye for colors! Caleb makes great videos too.
Caleb, you are truly a prince to me. I love you, my friend, just the way you are.
For my Blog Candy, I am giving away, to one lucky winner, a K& Company "Color Basic" Designer Mat Pad. It has 18 sheets of double sided card stock and the sheets measure 4.75 by 6.75. It will be great for spring and summer cards!
All you have to do is become a follower on Caleb's blog and leave him a comment! Easy peasy! Caleb's Mom and I will select one lucky winner using random.org. You can visit Caleb's blog at KIDS FOR CARDS.
