The "1" and the "st" are from PTI along with the cardstock and the patterned paper. The circle was cut from Nestabilities. The city scape, road, and dino are from Paper Smooches. The "Birthday" sentiment is also from Paper Smooches.
I also have a dinosaur hat I knitted for him, a stuffed triceratops, and one of my favorite movies as a kid, "The Land Before Time." I think he'll like his dino themed gift :)

The satin bow is PTI Hawaiian Shores and the rolled flowers were made for me by my stampin' friend, Gerry, out of PTI Canyon Clay and Aqua Mist felt. Aren't they so pretty??
The card base is PTI Aqua Mist, and all sentiments are from a mixture of 3 different PS Sentiment sets (my collection has grown a bit ;)
There's still time to play, so why don't you check it out, too? Thanks for stopping by!

The sentiment is also from PS, and the banner die is from PTI. The patterned paper is from K&Co. and the cardstock from PTI. The twine is two different colors from The Twinery.

Happy Easter, everyone! I hope that the Easter bunny filled your baskets full of crafty goodies...and a chocolate bunny for good measure :) I hope you are getting to spend time with families and enjoying delicious food. Here's a look at the Easter cards I created for my girlfriends...using Paper Smooches, of course :)
I designed and made 8 of these cards in an hour...a record for me! I now know that Clean and Simple is the way to go when creating multiples ;) I paper pieced the chick with some SU DSP and used Copics to color in the beak and feet.
The chick and sentiment are both from PS Chubby Chums, the patterned paper is all from SU DSP, the half & half die and cardstock are from PTI and the twine is from the Twinery. The corduroy button is from SU.
Here's a look at the group of them before I mailed them out :)

I used Paper Smooches Metropolis stamps on this card (cityscape, fireworks, cab, sentiment, road, traffic light) SU patterned paper, PTI ribbon, button, and cardstock.
There's still time to play along, so go check it out yourself, here. Thanks for stopping by!

This week's Make it Monday challenge was to use Computer Generated Sentiments on Diecuts. You should definitely watch the video, I don't know why I never thought of Erin's technique using the negative from the die for perfect cutting placement! I'll definitely be going back to that in the future. Here is the Easter card I created:
And the computer generated sentiment on the jar label die:
So I used Mega Mat Stack #3 and Layerz Mat Stack #3. I used Aqua Mist Gingham paper, Spring Moss, and Harvest Gold paper (and saddle stitched ribbon).
The jar is from the Friendship Jar set and the bunny is from the Spring Fillers set. The grass punch is from Martha Stewart and the pinking border die is from PTI.
