The tale of Jenny and Jason…

23 years ago, our sweet Jason and his cousin Jenny were born 41 minutes apart on March 25…. AND they were born on their great-grandpa's birthday!!  So all 3 shared the same birthday for several years until great-grandpa "Boppie" Burns passed away.

The photo above was taken on Jenny and Jason's 1st birthday, March 25, 1992.  My sister-in-law and I sure look young!!  LOL This is my brother's wife, Tami with our kiddos and "Boppie".  It was amazing to have our babies only 41 minutes apart on the same day!  (but 400 miles apart).

Jason-squirrel-fence-birthday-card

Jason and I love to feed the squirrels and the birds in our backyard, so I snapped this photo of the squirrel on our fence and then I made a fence with the Hardwood Background stamp and put it over the photo! 🙂  See video tutorial here for making the fence.

I stamped just the outline of the "love ya" "Just Sayin' stamp, then stamped happy birthday inside the outline and die cut it with the word bubble framelit dies and my Big Shot.

 On the inside of his card I stamped one of the custom photopolymer stamps I ordered from Stampin' Up!, punched it with the 1-1/4" punch and then added one of the Essentials Wooden Elements arrows.

 Every year on his birthday I take a photo of Jason in front of our wisteria.. it ALWAYS blooms for his birthday 🙂

Oh and a funny side note…. Jason saw this photo in the scrapbook and wanted me to share it with you …. this was my ENTIRE stamp collection back in 1992!!  LOL
