I Am One, another HTV shirt

Last week my youngest grandson, Felix, turned one.
 This is him. Isn't he a cutie pie? I know I'm a little biased, but it's hard not to be! Anyway, I made him a shirt to mark this momentous occasion and, like the one I made for his cousin Carter, I wanted it to be one he could wear more often than just on his birthday. The image and the font are from the Sesame Street Font cartridge.
While I'm at it, I'll go ahead and post the card I made for him too. The truck is from Boys Will be Boys. The star paper is from The Paper Studio and the blue paper is embossed with a folder from The Paper Studio.

Since my daughters were "kind" enough to have their kids just before and just after Christmas, I will now have a little break from the birthdays! Maybe I will actually get some Valentine's done.

Heat Transfer Vinyl Shirt

After seeing lots of birthday shirts for kids, I decided to make Carter a T-shirt for his 4th birthday. I wanted one  that he could wear more often than just on his birthday so didn't want it to say "birthday boy" or anything like that. Since his favorite footwear these days are the cowboy boots he got for Christmas, I decided on this:
The design is made with heat transfer vinyl and was super easy. I made it in about 30 minutes the morning of his party. The cowboy cut is from the Cricut County Fair cartridge and the rest is the font from the Cupcake cartridge. I already had the vinyl and T-shirt on hand.
Carter's party was a few days before his birthday. I brought the shirt and asked if he would put it on so I could take a picture of him in it. He told me "no, I can't, because I'm not actually four yet"! What could I say, I just put the shirt on his bed and took the pictures. He did wear it on his birthday though, so I guess he likes it!

Robot Birthday Card

My grandson Carter turned four today and I'm still a little bit in shock! He is growing up way too fast. His party was this past Saturday and he asked for a robot theme. This is the card I made him.
The robot image is from the Robotz Cricut cartridge and cut from shimmery grey paper. I added some small brads for buttons on his upper body. The gear is a stamp from Oriental Trading Co, heat embossed with opal silver lining by Clear Tops. The number four is a glitter Thickers sticker. It was originally white, but I colored it green with a marker. The background paper is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. I believe it is from the Robotz set. The ribbon on the top is some I've had forever and I put it on there because it is one of Carter's favorites. He has made several cards here with me and has used this ribbon on almost every one.
A week or so ago I joined in with a group of Circle members and pledged to use my stash for the next three months. The challenge is not to buy anything, except essentials, and use what we have. I'm happy to say everything on this card came from my stash!
