Happy 1st Birthday - 2 Challenges

Hey, happy weekend!  I've been crafting most of the day.  I love doing it, but "whew"...I need a little down time now.  After I post, though :)
I'm playing along in 2 challenges tonight.
Card Patterns Sketch 164

 CAS-ual Fridays CFC 51 - They're celebrating their 1st birthday!

I created a framed photo gift for some friends of our family.  Their little one is turning 1 year old.  In addition to the gift I created this birthday card for sweet little "J".

He's just as cute, as he is sweet!  I had a great time creating his gift and this card!  The card is fairly clean and simple.  I used circle Spellbinder dies to cut out the photo and the patterned paper behind it.  I die-cut the number 1 out of card stock, then popped it up on foam tape after I had stamped the rest of the sentiment.  That's about it.  I'll be back with a another post tomorrow!

Thanks for taking a look at what I've been up to :)

What's in it?
card stock: chocolate chip, baja breeze (SU)
ink: early espresso (SU)
stamps: birthdays by the numbers (PTI)
dsp: parisian breeze (SU)
other: circle dies (Spellbinders), by the numbers (PTI), photo, scor-tape, foam tape

P.S. Do you want a peek at "J's" gift?  Well.  Okay.  ;-}

Eck!  It was soooo much fun to make...I just had to show you.  Bye now.
