A very special Birthday

Each year Christmas Eve brings so forth so many memories. Excitement as a child with the anticipation of Santa’s arrival, celebrations with family as we went to mass and came home to enjoy champagne appetizers and gift opening, and then the birth of our first son.

Our son’s birth was not anticipated as he came three months early. I can recall like it was yesterday leaving the hospital on Christmas night passing the beautiful decorations that lined the hospital drive – without him with us.   We had a priest come to the hospital to christen him on Christmas Day; and experienced our own Christmas miracle as Conor responded well to the jet ventilator. Today we celebrate his 26th birthday!


This fun shaker card features Honey Bee Designs Happy Birthday Stamp and coordinating Honey Cuts. My order came in this adorable buffalo plaid paper bag. I could not resist using it for this special birthday card. I just love the result. Thank you Honey Bee Stamps for the beautiful packaging.
