National Vascular Birthmark Day

My Heart Similes Thinking of You

Today, May 15th, is the first ever National Vascular Birthmark Awareness Day.  Which of course, means that it's time to make a card for the occasion, but more importantly, let's put heart shaped "birthmarks" on our cheeks for Vascular Birthmark Awareness.  I'll share details about the today's card in just a bit, but first let me share our story.

National Vascular Birthmark Awareness Day

Our precious grandson, Levi, was born almost 3 years ago with a Port Wine Birthmark on the left side of his face, but that has not  changed his sunny disposition in the least.  Levi with his ready smile is a little bundle of energy and mischief.  And he always brings a smile to my heart.  Life is beautiful!

Levi, Julie, Lincoln

Here's Levi, Julie (his Mama) and Lincoln (his brother) celebrating National Vascular Birthmark Awareness Day together.  I suspect that Dad is behind the camera, so he's celebrating too.  Lincoln has always been a bit jealous that Levi has a birthmark, so he was delighted to have a birthmark for a day.  

Love You Lots

Today's card gives one last hurray for the fabulous Love you Lots and Suite Sayings Stamp sets.  Both sets are on the Retirement List so their days are numbered.  The Love You Lots stamp set is a hostess set, so it is only available to order on orders over $150.  The little frog was stamped on a piece of the Eastern Palace designer paper and fussy cut.

Not everything is retiring.  The Scribbly heart is was cut with a die from the Sunshine Wishes Dies and the Soft Sky Stitched Square was cut with the Stitched Shapes dies.

And the fun Lemon Lime Twist Envelope was fashioned with the Envelope Punch Board.  The Lemon Lime Envelope should be a real stand out in the mailbox.

You Are My Sunshine Quick & Simple Card

  Over the Rainbow Quick & Easy Card

Hello Friends,

Today's card is quick and simple to make.  Love the sweet little sunshine that looks as if it has been drawn by a child with crayons.  The sunshine stamp is a Retiring Stamp Set, Over the Rainbow.

You Are My Sunshine

Tips & Tricks

Keeping with the sunshine theme, I embossed my background with the Sparkle Textured Impressions Embossing Fold.  That's leaves lots of lovely white space with just a dab of texture.

Next up, stitches, string, lace, sequins and fun Washi Tape.  I cut around my sunshine with the Stitched Shapes Dies and added just a wee bit of glitz with one lone Frosted Sequin.  The Frosted Sequins are just 2 bucks on the Clearance Rack

 It would be hard to make a bad project with the Botanical Builder Dies.  Seriously, those flowers are always so pretty.  Today, they take on a classic look paired with the gorgeous Navy and White Floral Boutique Designer Series paper.  

I will really miss the playful Large Polka Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder too.  Polka Dots always make me smile.
