TWO!

The little guy I babysat for from the time he was 3 months old is turning 2 in a few weeks and I get to see him this Friday!  "Mom" is going for her follow-up ultrasound and we'll see if he's going to have a brother or a sister! How fun!  The best part is that I'll get to spend a morning with him! He is so adorable!
And since he's learning to recognize and count his numbers, I wanted to include elements that he can read on the card!  I am constantly bragging to anyone who will listen how he can identify all the letters of the alphabet!

I know it's not the BEST card I've ever made, but I believe that we often loose track of who the recipient is.  I wanted to make a card that Noah would like.  
The papers are Martha Stewart; Dr. Seuss alpha's and images, Fiskars scallop; EK Success punch;  sentiment by TPC Studio; and buttons from Bazzill.

                                   My little guy - Noah.

I will be entering this card in the sketch challenge at Walting Mouse.

Aww...they grow so fast, don't they! Your card is adorable, and while he may not appreciate the craftiness that went into its creation, I'm sure his mother will be thrilled at your thoughtfulness.

Thanks for playing along with the Waltzingmouse Stamp Sketch Challenge!

Very cute card. I think it's totally adorable!!! The boy you sit is darling. Clever too! My little one (21-mo) started reading letters early too. She finally got all of her A-Z a few months ago and now halfway through the lowercase. She's now like Noah, going through the numbers. She can say 1-10 but can only recognize half of them. Kids are so so fun at this age and just like sponges!!
