Happy 1st Birthday to Gavin!

I know I've posted for another Gavin I know (he turned 8 in April), but today was "little" Gavin's 1st birthday party!!  So for the little man, I made him this card below using the CM Stork's Delivery cartridge.  I failed to write down the image cut sizes on this one, sorry.  But I added some plain card stock as well as 'boyish' patterned paper to a simple white cardstock card and added the twine and a button!  (I really struggle with "boyish" stuff but I thought this turned out cute!)  :)

*Entered into the My Craft Spot - Monday Challenge
On the inside, I used the stamps I borrowed from Robin again and also added the "1" candle image from the Sweet Treats cartridge.

In addition to the card, I created him a banner since his mommy said they were just about to move into their new house!  She said this would be perfect for his new room!  Yay!
For this banner, I had many Cricut cuts so here's the list below:

Car (taxi altered) - from the Going Places cartridge - cut at 1.25"
Train - from the Playtime cartridge - cut at 1.75"
Cowboy Hat - from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge - cut at 2.25"
Tractor (altered) - from the Country Life cartridge - cut at 2"
Airplane - from the Everyday Pop-Up Cards cartridge - cut at 1.75"
And.... the banner pennants & layers were cut from the Country Life cartridge at 8.5".

Now here's some pics!  :)

 Some ribbon, jute, and some white gel pen accents finish this banner off just right! :)
