Happy Birthday Logan

Hi Everyone,
Today was the the 1st birthday party for Frank's great grandson, Logan. His actual 1st birthday was Wednesday, Jan. 18 and today we all celebrated with a big party, presents, balloons and food. Logan is so cute. He was born 7 weeks early but you'd never know it. Today he is well and growing like a weed.

So since the party was today, I just had to make a card to take.

The shoes are from Stampendous - Baby Shoes. The words and the balloons are in a set from Sparkle N Sprinkle - Set 406  Me and Mommy. I have very few baby stamps, but with the few baby stamps I had on hand I used them to make this card. 

Frank needed a card too, so I made another for him to take as well. I used this giraffe stamp, I've had it for years and I must say it is an all time favorite of mine. I remember when this stamp was introduced back in 2001, and, it is still available today.This guy is great!!! It's from Rubber Cottage and its RC149J Giraffe - Lg. The tree I used just reminds me of trees on the African plains, I felt it would enhance the giraffe stamp. It is an Art Impressions stamp Q-2281 Desert Tree. I like this stamp as well. I have so many stamps that I truly love, it's hard to get rid of them when you really love them. (I've had very few stamps that I've gotten rid of over all the years of my stamping.) 

The interesting thing about this card is that Logan's bedroom is decorated with giraffes and I had no idea.
How cool is that!! 

Well that is it for now, thanks for stopping in and I will see you soon.

I love the backgrounds that you incorporated into the Giraffe card Barbara. This is a great masculine card. TFS

Love the giraffe!!! The other card is cute too - I even have that paper you used on the border LOL - I used it for Charlie's scrapbook.

Cute, cute, cute Barbara! Love the jungle/savannah feel to the giraffe card. And the baby card is really sweet.

I love giraffes, too. I have several different giraffe stamps. I've never seen the one you used, though. What a lucky coincidence that Logan's room is done in giraffes. I like the baby shoes on the other card & the paper with all the animals.

I have been following you for just a little while. I just now noticed Coco!!! cute assitant! We have 2 cuties but they would rather eat gemstones...and sit smack dab in the middle of my workspace then actually assist!

Great cards!!! That giraffe looks like it is going to come right off the card and take life!

Your greats are so special, Barbara. Someone will be placing them in Loagn's baby book for his 1st birthday remembrance from Great Grandpa and Great Grandma. The baby shoes look fabulous! That giraff looks spectacular with the textures and tree in the background. What a fantastic card! Who wouldn't love receiving it. I think Rubber Cottage hit the jackpot with that image. Most of my friends seem to own it as well. Thank you for sharing your special "Logan" day.
