A Full Well.....

Meet Maxwell Jasper. He fills my well of life, bringing joy to our family and adding a goofiness and sensitivity that was lacking before his birth. It is hard to believe that it has been 7 years since that moment! He started life with a big personality, weighing in at 9lbs! He has an amazing way of making others feel like he is an old friend who you never lost touch with. One who you can talk with about everything and always brings a smile to your face.

I find it completely appropriate that my original card for Max got picked up and will be published in the October CARDS! I really can't wait to see it in print and think of him! Since it was sent off, I needed to make another one. I took a completely different direction with this one and am excited to give it to him! Have a great Friday!
Recipe:
Stamps: NONE
Paper: kraft, dude collection dp (prima), basic black, whisper white
Ink: NONE
Accessories: black rickrack, nestabilties, sticky cut letters, fine cosmo
