Superheroes Birthday Easel Card...This One's for my Beloved Son!

Hello, everyone!  A couple of days ago, we celebrated both mine and my son's Birthday with some friends.  We went on vacation on the actual days of our birthdays and I don't want my son to miss out on the fun he can have with his friends so, we scrambled to put this party together.  I was not going to make a card for my little boy but realized that I have given cards before to all his friends during their birthdays and it would not be fair if I don't make one for him, my dear little one.  I am sure he would have understood my situation but my biggest Cardmaking fan deserves a card from his Mommy.  Since he is into Superheroes nowadays, I've made him an Easel Card featuring few of his fave Superheroes.  

I used the BW images from Melonheadz collection and colored them individually with my ProMarker and Bic markers.   I started with an A7 Kraft base card (pre-cut), grey and black CS and a DP from my stash.  I used my Crop-A-dile to attach 6 eyelets and went online to put together a wonderful message to compliment my images.  The "too cool" sentiment located in the card and envelope was from Printworks. And finally, I stitched all over this card using regular and fancy stitches.  I love it and best of all, my little man love it too.  He even read the message of the card in front of his friends at the party when he was opening gifts.  Super!  I would like to hear what you think about this card by dropping me some comments. This Card is entered into the following Challenges:

1.    Make it Monday featuring "Anything Goes"
2.    Cutie Pie featuring "Use a Digi"
3.    Crafts and Me featuring "My Sentiments Exactly!"

Who does not like Superhero movies?  We all love the idea of men and women with super powers fighting against evil forces and saving the day.  Sad to say but most of the things we watch in the movies and TV are but fictionAs much as we want to see Superman flying all around us, The Hulk smashing the bad guys and Iron man blowing up nuclear and destructive weapons, they are not real.  But we have One real Superhero of all time! His name is JESUS!  He came, died, buried and resurrected for the sole purpose of saving humanity from not just present danger but for life eternal.   He is Omniscient (all-knowing), Omnipresent (everywhere-there's no place He's not) and the Bible declares He knows the very count of each of our hairs (Matthew 10:30).  Today, we are in grave danger as a nation and as a people.  Our choices will determine the kind of nation our children and our children's children will live on for the years to come.  I don't want to wake up one day and realize that our freedom was taken away from us and I didn't do anything to stop it.  So, empowered by my Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ, I will break the yokes of the enemy and expose the works of the devil in whichever way possible by proclaiming what Jesus has done for man's salvation, doing all my duties as a citizen of my country and pray for the welfare of this nation and the world.  We are made to be more than conquerors through Christ Jesus, our Lord (Romans 8:37)!  So arise, men and women of God! Go and fight the good fight of faith (1Timothy 6:12) in our daily lives, in our community, our state and our nation.  America and the nations of the world are worth fighting for!  I leave you with this verse today:

2 Chronicles 7:14   

"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

  3. This is SO cute, Jo Ann. I hope he loves it, and that he cherishes the fact that you made it for him. My husband doesn't usually get too involved in my "scrappy stuff", but he was looking over my shoulder the other day and saw some of your cards and commented that he really liked your cards. He thinks they stand out as "really special and different". He doesn't usually comment a whole lot, so I thought I would share that. He is a police officer (Mr. Tough Guy, you know), so he doesn't usually comment about this "girly" stuff. LOL
    You are such a blessing in my life, and I thank God for you. Hope your Birthday is wonderful, my friend. May He bless you for being such a blessing to me, and give you many more years of health and happiness serving and living for Him.
