This is a 5"x7" card base made from Recollections Kraft cardstock .  Next layer, a mat 4.75" x 6.75"cut from Recollections Ivory Cardstock.  Next layer is a polka dot paper cut from the stack at 4.5" x  6.5".  Three square mats 2 1/8" x  2 1/8" cut from Recollections Ivory cardstock.
Soccer ball squares cut from a page in the paper stack 1 7/8" x 1 7/8". Gel pen for stitching around the squares. Spellbinders small scalloped circle dies, I used the third largest die and cut Recollections Kraft cardstock. Spellbinders large classic circles, I used the third largest die and cut Recollections Ivory Cardstock. Spellbinders small classic circles, I used the fourth largest die, and cut matching paper from stack. The letter k was printed on the paper but you can cut any letter with your Cricut or Silhouette machine. I fussy cut the star from the stack.

My favorite Hot Chocolate mix

This is by far the best Hot Cocoa mix I have found, so I wanted to share. I buy it at Publix, my local grocery store. You make it with warm (hot) milk. It's kind of expensive, but it's cheaper than Starbucks or Panera Bread (more money for crafting supplies). ;)

Birthday Card for Son Jon

I wanted something that was masculine and something with an antique feel. I have some stamps from Glitz Designs that I bought from "My Craft Channel" last year. I don't use them much because I really don't prefer that look but it worked out well for this project. I used DCWV (Timeless Type) stack for the printed paper and Bazzill cardstock. The sentiment came from My Pink Stamper stamps, "Birthday Crazy".
The frame is from Cricut cartridge,"Elegant Edges" pg 51. I used the "oblong" layer button with a shift for the cream base at 4.25" and the "oblong frame" layer button at 4" for the brown frame. I used the "border" layer button with a shift for the sentiment strip. I cut one border strip of cream and one of brown, both at .75". I then trimmed the creme border with scissors just a tad on each the sides of the cream border so the brown would kind of frame the cream border. This is a 5"x 7" (A7) card.
