Crafty Creation "C" for Carson

Hi friends!
How are ya'll doing?
It's only Wednesday,
but it's already been a busy week here.
But, I'm never too busy 
for a crafty creation.
Right?!

This crafty creation is for my cousin's son, Carson.
He just celebrated his first birthday this past weekend.
Since I was at home sick all weekend,
we missed the festivities. :( 
When James found out we missed the party he said
"Well YOU might have been sick, but I wasn't!!!"
Needless to say Carson might forgive me
for being sick, but James won't.
Oh how that child loves a good party! 

Now on to the fun...
the gift.
I started with a "C" from Hob Lob.
I painted, modge podged, sanded, decorated,
antiqued and then modge podged some more.
Until this...
became this.

I just couldn't help myself 
and had to make a matching card.
Once everything was good and dry,
I used my Crop-a-dile to attach twine as a hanger.
Finally, a cute gift demands cute giftwrap. :)
Since I'm practical and crafty
his gift included a cute pair of camo shorts too.
So do tell,
do you wish your name was Carson
and this was your gift?!

I have been seeing these around while blog hopping. I love how you put his name down the side. Very cute...and the twine hanger. Nice job! I am waiting for these letters to go on sale. You know everything in Hobby Lobby goes on sale 1 week or another. Great gift idea!

Sarah, I can't thank you enough for the gift. It is proudly hanging in his room and the stripes matched the piping around his bedding PERFECTLY!!! I am so lucky to have been the recipient of this fabulous gift. I had to show it off that night at the ballpark and let me tell you it got RAVE reviews sister!

I am so jealous of how crafty you are! I am not...at all :( Maybe in my next life :) Super cute gift though! Where do you buy your wrapping paper? It is super cute as well!!
