A Saint Patrick's Day Birthday...

I know this is kind of late, given it's the second weekend of April, but I just gave this to the birthday boy recently -- and I always hate ruining the surprise, in case his Mom reads my blog...

My nephew Jason's birthday is St. Patrick's day, and he thinks it's TOTALLY cool.  Quite frankly, I would too ;).  Anyway - this year he turned 6, and they had a really cool birthday party at the house, my sister-in-law made t-shirts for all the kids, for them to be part of the M.C.B.A which stood for "their last name that starts with M" - Cuccia Basketball Association.  My in-laws dressed up like referees, it was great.  Well, except for the minor snafu that they needed 300 lbs of sand to put in the base of the basketball net...but my oldest nephew Ian came to the rescue -- he went out and got what they needed for his little bro ;).

Anyway -- onto his card.  I know he's still young, but couldn't resist making him a VERY cool St. Patrick's day birthday card.  So I broke out my Celtic Heritage and Irish Blessings stamp sets, oh - and the Very Vintage Labels 3 stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps.  Here's what I came up with:
I just LOVE how those Labels 3 stamps dress up the nestability die cuts, don't you?!?!  I need to add to my collection!  If you haven't shopped there yet, you should check out Waltzingmouse Stamps, she's got lots of great things to choose from, and her latest additions include some designs for the guys -- I ♥ them, and can't wait for them to arrive!

Have a great weekend!  Thanks for stopping by :)
