The Raven...a birthday card from Sugar Creek Hollow & Mom!

This may seem a little odd to make a birthday card for a 12 year old boy out of Edgar Allen Poe's The Raven poem but my son will go nuts over this tomorrow!  He just started middle school and his 6th grade ELA teacher read this poem to the class.  He's been talking about it for a week now and doing research on Poe on line.  When I sat down to think about how I would make his card this year I instantly thought of how SUGAR CREEK HOLLOW'S Curly Crow would be perfect with this poem.  The Raven plaque is a vintage photo that I found on line and cropped.  I printed the poem on DP for the background.  Notice the really cool thing that you can do with the digital stamps you get from SCH...the crow on the front is the same crow that I have on the tree inside.  You can make them any size that you want!!  I really think he's going to love this because it's uniquely made for him.  Tomorrow my little guy turns 12.  The only problem is he's not so little anymore.  Every time I go to look for my sneakers or flip flops they're gone....and I have BIG feet.  Mom loves you Dominick!!!  Happy Birthday!!!

Don't forget to check back here tomorrow for the Christmas Blog Hop from SUGAR CREEK HOLLOW.  We will be having a secret phrase game and one lucky winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to the Sugar Creek Hollow shoppe.  There are so many beautiful new images available for the holiday season.  You'll be so inspired by what the design team has put together.  See you tomorrow!
