I have recently started nannying for 2 boys.  The older one celebrated his birthday on Friday,  The younger one wanted to make a Taekwondo panda card.  We found a teddy wearing a robe on the Teddy Bear Parade cartridge.  The background paper is Paper Studio.  The solid blue is a shaped note card I bought from Marshalls.  All other papers are scraps.
This card was created and designed by a 9 year old boy.  He loves to craft.

My niece, Janessa, is having a baby boy in a few weeks.  She got a lot of cool baby items at her shower.  I thought I would give her a gift card or some money when  Gavin arrives.  BBTB2 is having a Gift box challenge.  For this box I used Wrap it Up.  I put Sook Wang double sided tape under the cutout and covered the sticky side with Crystal Glitter Ritz.  Then I used an orange Sharpie for the beak.  The bow on top and the floral label are MY CREATIVE TIME.  The onesie is a Stamps of Life die. The sentiment is Studio G.  Of course I had to embellish the bow with a Skittle from Doubleclick Connections
