Cooperman- My favorite 7 year old!

Good afternoon y'all. Hope this finds you and yours doing well! I think most of us are feeling good finely! It seems everyone was battling something this month. This was a big Birthday month for us! Cooperman, my superman, turned 7. He is a spunky, smart and very energetic little boy. He definitely has his CeCe wrapped around his finger. We made a quick trip to see our daughter, Elizabeth, in North Carolina for her birthday the middle of the month and our 11 year old grandson Stephen had his birthday last week! Phew! I've been making birthday cards, not to mention Valentine stuff! Here is Cooperman's awesome card!

Image may contain: 4 people, people smiling, childThis is the outside view. the Designer Series Paper layer is on the outside of the envelope. The bottom of the card is embossed with the brick embossing folder. It's a box card. I love these.This one uses the very popular Magical Day Stamp set (145854) and Myths and Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper (145600).

Here is a closer view of the little knight. Isn't he the cutest thing ever!
Cooperman loved it! Of course he really loved the sweet little 2x2 inch acetate box that accompanied the card with the 7 dollars, 7 quarters, 7 dimes, 7 nickels and 7 pennies!
That's all I have for now. I'm late getting this out. Tomorrow is March 1st. Spring is really here already!  I hope you have a blessed day and have the opportunity to bless those around you. See ya later.
Love stamping in Dixie,

Hey y'all! It's been a tough few weeks around here. A lot of activity and too much not feeling well!!! A couple sick grand kids, a couple sick kids and Tombo and I fighting it with everything! So far I think I'm just fighting a cold! But I promise I am hitting it it with everything I've got. Most of all I seem to be sleeping a lot! This means I'm not accomplishing all the late night stuff I usually do! So you see why I am behind in posting, I am behind in projects, housework, laundry... Hopefully, I'm headed in the right direction now! I wanted to share a sweet project with y'all. I made this for a long time friends daughter, who is getting married in a few months. I never do wedding stuff and here I've had 2 in less than a month! Looks familiar I know.
I used the same stamp set (Petal Passion) and Memories and more card kit as I did on the last card I shared. I love it! This stamp set is awesome. The whole suite is awesome! The card is very different fold and the packaging is awesome!!!! Wait, I have used that word to many times. The packaging is Over the Top! Here is the card closed. The left flap slides under the oval embellishment to hold the card closed. It actually is a gift card holder. I used the DSP, the stamp set, the Memories and more kit,  and the  coordinating framelits. The little
embellishment that holds the gift card
with the sentiment sending you Lots + Lots of happy is from the Lots of Happy Card kit (146388) in the Occasions catalog. It is my all time favorite All inclusive kit! I promise! That little envelope held the gift card and it fit in the flap. The white piece behind it is a 3 x 4 card from the Memories and more kit that I was able to use to write a message. I have to say I was really pleased with how this turned out! Time to run, so I'll save the packaging until next time! Have a great day. Be a blessing to someone else and you will find yourself truly blessed!
Much love, Stamping in Dixie!
