Happy 9th birthday Sam! It's hard to believe that exactly nine years ago this minute I was in labour with my firstborn! It was a slow day but it's been a crazy fast nine years!
I made this card for Sam using my new stamps from Gina K Designs: The Journey, designed by the very talented Asela Hopkins. The minute I saw this image I knew it had to be for Sam and I chose the sentiment for the same reason. Of course I love all my children dearly but there is a special something about my relationship with Sam, probably because he is my firstborn, or maybe it's a mother-son thing. I'm not sure but I thank God every day for the blessings Sam has brought to our lives.
I stamped the image in Stazon on watercolour paper, coloured it with Tombows and then masked it in order to sponge the background and stamp the steps. I stamped the sentiment and made an oval with my Nesties, then cut out a fancy tag to frame it.
