Carolina On My Mind

Good Morning!  Hope wherever you are it's beginning to warm up.  Here in central NC we are having a couple days of nice 70 degree sunny weather!  I'll take it!

No matter your weather, it's always a good time to check out the latest challenge Ella has created over at
 This week is a technique --- SHAPED CARDS

Of course, for this, I thumbed through my templates (I have a few) from The Cutting Cafe.  With March Madness upon us, my youngest son's 21st birthday in a month and his college graduation on Mother's Day, I decided to make him a special birthday card.  He's a Tar Heel, hence, the Carolina t-shirt card!  I started out thinking I'd die cut the letters and numbers, but my letter dies are kind of small.  So, I pulled out the ole scrapbook stickers.  I not only found alphabet and number stickers, I found some UNC stickers.  So I fussy cut one for the Ram mascot sticker.  The back of the shirt is just like the front.  Inside, I printed the UNC alma mater.  I should have taken photos of the back and inside.  If I get a chance later I will and repost them here.

For Following Challenges:

PINK Elephant Blessings!
