I love it when the mail carrier leaves a happy box on my doorstep. I got a new box of goodies in the mail on Friday from Paper Issues and I dove into it right away. I immediately pulled out the Game Day Chili collection from Jillibean Soup, played around a bit and made this masculine card.
I thought this might work well as an anniversary card for a guy or as a Valentine or love note. But as a mom of a young boy, I thought a card like this could also be used as a note of encouragement. I'm definitely my son's #1 fan and if he were having a bad day or a rough time, I'd like to remind him that dear ole mom is always in his corner. To me, he's a star. He's a champ. He's my homerun.
The Jillibean designers had a challenge in April to use buttons on a project. I didn't have any regular Jillibean buttons, but I did have some die cut ones from the Game Day line. So I layered a star die cut button on top of a blue button and stitched them onto the bottom corner of my card.
I don't know how many entries Jillibean Soup got in this challenge, but I feel pretty certain that my project had the least number of buttons....
