Maxwell for Al!

Well, it's Monday again, I hope everyone had a great weekend. I also hope your weather was warmer than ours in S.W. Ontario. For those of you who live around here, you know what I mean. I guess we must be very thankful that it's not cold enough for snow and it has been quite sunny, but our Pastor said yesterday that we have had 20 days in a row of below average temps, and he wouldn't lie, tee hee!!

Anyway, I used Kraftin' Kimmie's Maxwell again for this card, he is so cute. I made this with our dear son-in-law in mind (Kimmie's hubby). I have to confess that we have been so busy lately that I missed his birthday. I remembered it until a day or two before, then with Thanksgiving etc., it slipped my mind. I hope he forgives us, I think he will still love us anyway!!

Shhhh Kimmie, no telling until the card arrives!!!

I found some cute paper from my K & Company Wild Raspberry pad that I thought was O.K. for a guy. I used Cranberry Crisp to mat the DP on and used Sahara Sand for the base and to mat Maxwell on. I used Barely Banana for the sentiment, which is also from Kraftin' Kimmie and Cranberry Crisp for the larger oval. I finished off with some buttons and some hemp twine. I hope Al likes it even though it is late.

Have a blessed day folks, and I'll be back on Saturday with a card for Kimmie's 3rd. Challenge. I may even be back before if I can get some more cards done!! I'm gonna try.


  1. Hey there Nana D ! Maxwell looks as cute as a button! Love the dp and I have a bit of a soft spot for buttons. Tee hee hee ! Must be something in the cold air in South Western Ontario,.......I forgot my brother-in-laws birthday! Oops! I wonder if I have a "belated birthday" stamp? Take care, ;o) Tracy
