10 minute Card and Carter's 4th Birthday!

 Happy Sunday!  Today I have a card for a new challenge to share, it's called the 10 minute craft dash!  10 minutes who can't find time to play along with a challenge like that!  Here is my card:

This card took me 7 minutes and 40 seconds.

 I used a poppy stamps Loreali Branch die along with the perched bird die by Memory box.  It's quite the CAS card but I really love it.  I think what took me the longest was adhered double sides tape to the branch!  I am out of liquid glue!  What a fun challenge, you should play along too!

Today is Carter's 4th Birthday!  Hard to believe that my little boy is 4 years old already.  It does feel like yesterday that we brought him home from the hospital!  Carter is very much a boy!  He is so sweet but also so energetic!  :>  He really adds a lot to our family!  He is deeply in love with his older sister, and lucky for him it's mutual!  He plays so well with her and protects her too!  Carter is very energetic is could spend his day running around if he could!  He is amazing at sports and what a throw and kick he has!  And does he ever love sports!  He loves to share love with all of us at random parts of the day.  He is very much my cuddly little boy and loves when it's snuggle time!  He's taller than most boys his own age or older and so skinny!  He loves to climb and jump and has given us a few scares already!  Carter loves to talk and tell us stories, it's always interesting!  I love Carter and am so happy that God blessed us with him.  Happy 4th Birthday my little boy!

I am planning a Super hero birthday party for him this upcoming week so look forward to party details soon!  Until than here are some cute photos of Carter from this past year:

I had to share this photo, Carter got into the dress up at his grandparents (since than she got boy dress up) and came out with this wig, we laughed and laughed!  It's Ariel's little sister lol!

Happy 4th Birthday my sweet boy!  :>

Happy Birthday to Carter! Love all the cute! And your card is stunning! So elegant!

Happy Birthday Carter! Love the card, too.
A SuperHero party sounds like fun. I love hearing about your little ones, mine are adults now. They were born just about a year apart and grew up so well together.
Enjoy every minute of it--it really goes far too fast.

A very happy birthday to Carter.... imagine... 4 years old. He is adorable. Such a boy now. I can't believe that your card only took under 10 mins. It is lovely CAS card.

Great card Anita! And the party looks wonderful! Hope that you are all recovered from it - kids parties are a lot of work - and that Ariel is feeling better!
