Birthday #11

Good Sunday morning to everyone. Hope you are enjoying your summer. Here in Chicago land we are enjoying some relief from hot and humid 90 degree weather. It's a balmy 82 today! Loving this weather so much as I don't want to think about winter just yet.

Last weekend we celebrated my Godson Aiden's 11th birthday with a Beach party theme. So of course I made his birthday card using the Bo Bunny Beach Therapy paper line and embellishments.

Sea shells I bought from Michaels

and this is the inside.
My sister came up with the beach theme since they had a new pool installed this spring.

can't have a beach party without a palm tree!

Ocean water (bottled water)

pool noodles (licorice)

 Now we are counting down the days to when my first grandbaby will enter this world! My DIL is due 8/26 but at her last checkup, the Dr. seems to think it will be a little sooner than that!

Thank you for stopping by and feel free to leave a comment! They're much appreciated~



  1. Awesome card, Nancy! What a fun birthday party! I know you must be really excited with the impending arrival of your grandchild soon.

  2. Great party theme! I sure could use a pool in my backyard!

    Sending best wishes to Jake and Joanna. Emily is 6 months along and the heat and swelling of her feet (from being on them all day) is making her miserable.

    I know you must be so anxious to hold that little guy in your arms. I know I am. May not give her back to Emily and Mike!! ;-D
