{SSSC153} Tucker is Turning 4!

Today's card is a custom order for my dear friend and wonderful Etsy customer, Lu! ♥  She needs a card for a very special little guy in her life who is turning 4 on March 8th.   She thought he would like something with cars, so I used this cute "honk honk beep beep" designer paper by The Paper Studio.  What do you think of the random black stitching?  ;)  And I've embellished with a custom printed tag and a button tied on with black and white baker's twine.  

The card is 5-1/4" square using buckaroo blue as the base.  The accent colors are pear pizzaz green and poppy parade red.  The number 4 was cut out using the Cricut and Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.
The inspiration for the layout came from today's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #153


{  I hope you like this sentiment Lu!  }

I like to decorate the envelope too. (see photo below)  The banner was creating using my new itty bitty Unity stamp set,  Life Documented Banner stamped in colors to match the card.  

The BEST thing is that I get to hand deliver this card to my friend in Las Vegas next week!!!  She's going to visit her family and I'm going to visit my daughter, son-in-law and precious grandbaby Emery!!!  I'm SO excited and just can't wait for all those {{{HUGS}}}!  ♥  

Speaking of Emery, it's been awhile since I shared a photo and I know you're anxious to see her again. ;)  Would you believe she's going to be 8 months old already?  I sure hope she remembers me!

Our precious little DIVA... ♥

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you're enjoying your weekend and doing something that makes you *smile*!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Pam! I appreciate you making this for my very special boy! It's just perfect for what I wanted.
You're so fabulously creative and perfect in what you make! I LOVE your work! I love the colors, they are perfect for my boy. The black stitching is really cool! He loves cars (anything with wheels) he will love this card. I love that it's personalized just for him. :) The saying inside the card is perfect too! I can't believe he's turning 4.
Your little DIVA is the cutest I've ever seen. I love her beautiful blue eyes! I'm sure you're excited to see her this week and she can't wait to see her Grammy! Perfect way to spend some vacation time! I hope to get to see her if it works out!
Thanks so much again for all the time and effort you took to make this card for me. Hand delivery? Who would of thought this could be?

This card is stunning! What sewing machine do you use?

Hello Pam, thanks for replying my question. I have been reading your blog this month. I was searching for something on online and made across a layout you created, then I checked your pinterest for the baby section. I just had a baby and wanted to be inspired to create baby pages, so your links has helped me a lot. About the machine, I think I will buy one and try it. I am not a sweing person like my mom but I have to give it a try. I just loved your sewing skills. Thanks for being such an inspiration. xoxo
