Happy birthday Nathan!! :-D

My little guy is 2!! It makes me all sad... he's growing up so fast!... Where did my baby go?... :-( 
I like to watch him sleep at night, take his tiny little hand in mine and whisper sweet words to him... He looks so small and peaceful then... <3
I wanted to make him a fun and special card, because he is my little sunshine, and just my luck SVGCuts released this adorable little Teddy in a hot air balloon (the "Crush on you" collection for Valentine's day, the original file is a little treat doorhanger!). Perfect timing! :-)

I had a lot of fun making this card  even though I had to "sabotage" my card because of the recipient!! I know at some point Nathan will get his hands on the card (which will be displayed in his room) and I don't know how much damage he will do... So I had to restrain from using my beloved foam tape and prop up the pennants and the bear nose etc... because the flatter the design, the harder for little hands to grab details and pull them off!... ;-)

I made the little bird by myself, I'm wondering how long before my little gremlin rips it apart... ;-) If I hadn't been in a rush I would have made the bear out of felt too...

The sun, number 2, and template for the big cloud are from SCAL's library. I hand cut the little cloud and just used basic triangles for the pennants.

I can't wait to see his face when I show it to him... :-)

That is such a beautiful card! Happy birthday to your little one! I know, kids grow up so fast, don't they? I miss my little one being not so little anymore. There's those felts in action again! I love how you are using them as subtle embellishments. Great work!!! Love the birdie and the pennants and the embossing, too!
