Just For You...A Special Reason

Happy Spring!
Well, it sure doesn't feel like spring here where I am but I know that the calendar says it is.  Harrumph!
That's okay....today is still a VERY special day.  Our grandson, Jason, turned two today.  He is absolutely a joy and we are so incredibly blessed that he is ours.  Just in case you need a little "cuteness" fix...

Okay...I thought I'd share a little "springy" card project with you today.  It uses the "Special Reason" stamp set and I LOVE these colors with it.  Below you'll find a step-by-step tutorial to create it with all of the supplies and cutting measurements.

Remember, If you need any supplies...or want to get in on the SaleABration goodness before it ends in just nine days...you can go to my Online Store and get what you need.
