My sweet little nephew turns one next weekend and I have been wanting to make a shaped card for him, but couldn't make up my mind what "shape" it should be.  I discovered the Cutting Cafe the other day, a great place to buy svg files to cut on my cricut and there I found this sailboat.  I decided to use the colors from this weeks CR84FN41 which were perfect for a little boys card, steel blue, gray and yellow.  I  only recently discovered CR84FN and their color challenges and I am really enjoying the beautiful color combinations they use in their challenges.   Here's my little sailboat:
After I diecut the sailboat shapes on my cricut, I stamped patterns from Waltzingmouse stamps Off Beat Backgrounds and Pic-nic Patterns.  Both of these stamp sets are so great to create your own patterned papers.  I had a blast stamping that plaid background in all three of the colors.  There are so many different combinations you can create.  I added a little Spellbinder ribbon banner with Grant's name on it, thank goodness he has a short name!  I would like to give a special thanks to my sweet friend Jeanne Jachna of A Kept Life who was so sweet to send me these dies, for no other reason than she is a super generous person!  I have wanted them for some time and they aren't available at my LSS.  Thanks so much, Jeanne.  The last touch on this little card was a tiny ribbon flag and button.  Super quick and easy card for a very sweet little boy on his first birthday.

Marvelous. I love your creative vision. You've really worked magic with the WMS set. The boat is so darling. Such a kind shout out to your crafting friend too. But as sweet as you are, it doesn't surprise me one bit that you'd inspire such generosity in others. I shall look forward to the other loveliness you're sure to create.

This is just too cute. Who would have ever thought to make a card shaped like a sailboat. This is one for his scrapbook, to be saved, for sure. I love the little 'flag' you put at the top, and how you were able to create a multi colored plaid with background stamps.

How ADORABLE! I love personalized projects, and this one is perfect for a little boy!
