It's Sappy and Sweet

And really kind of neat!

When a special someone has a Christmas Eve birthday, 
They may feel short changed with all the celebrations for the year, 
at one time.

To let him know just how special he is to us all, 
we created this really big card.  

I started with a 36" x 48" tri-fold cardboard display, some carpet tape and a glue stick.  Carpet tape is a very strong double stick tape that holds up well for this project. Now, shop til you drop for candy. I found a font I liked and printed out the words in big letters. It took about 5 pages to print.
Now the fun begins.

I saw something similar online a few years back,
 and made a few changes to it.
While it's hard to see in the photo, here is the little poem...

Getting older is nothing to (Snicker) about. Your joints may start to
(Crunch) and your (What cha ma call it) may not work like it did.
In fact you may have (Snow Caps) and (Butterfingers) and your mind may play (Twix) on you.  You may feel like an old (Crow), but you'll always be a (Hot Tamale) to us. We love your (Whopper) stories and would go to (Pieces) without you. No matter what, we wouldn't trade you for (100 Grand), cause your (Mounds) of fun to have around.
You may think we are (Nerds) for making this for you...
But really we are just a couple of (Goobers) who are (Nuts) about you 
and think you deserve a little (Extra) attention.

Now my thinking cap is on, and and I'm plotting some other fun
cards to make.  
My friends better watch out.

Til next time...
Keep on Stitchin'


  1. Very wonderful. We have an early January birthday in our family. Same thing, you know. Happy New Year. Kathie

  2. That is super cute and I am sure, greatly appreciated.

  3. Oooh! That is really cute and very creative. I bet he got a lot of enjoyment from that.

  4. I love your poem; you did a great job getting candy to fit into the lovely words. When my Mom turned 75 (Let's see...I think that must have been around 1996.) I made one of those up for her. She had it on the kitchen wall for ever so long. It's a great way to show someone special that you care. The tri-fold cardboard display was definitely a perfect way to do this. My poster board wasn't nearly strong enough. I'll remember that if I make one again. Have a wonderful 2017.

  5. Great idea!! Clever and cute and yummy!

  6. Such a unique idea!! Love it and may just use it in the future.

  7. What a fun card. Very impressive collection of goodies. Job well done.

  8. That's really fun!!! It makes all the difference when people take a little extra special time to recognize our birthdays separate from the holiday:)

  9. Fantastic and fun idea. It really is hard making sure the focus is on the birthday and now on Christmas. I think you have done really well.


Thanks for stopping by today. Your comments really do make me day!
