Feeling Old . . .

Well July and August are full of birthday so I'm being a busy, busy bee! and to top it all off there are some big birthdays, the firs one being Alex (my Godson) who turns a big 10 !!

After much thought and deliberating and siting at the dining table staring at a card blank, I had an epiphany and rmaged through my stamp collection for Amazing duo (again!) I thought that this maybe the last time I do a kiddie style card so I went to town.

I started off with a easel card, using DCWV All about Boys stack wanting the card to look like a comic book page. I added los of matting and layering so this card weighs pretty heavy (good job I hand delivered it). I found in my stash a Making Memories Clip so added that too, using a piece of Basic Grey basics note paper.

The easel is propped up with a punched strip of Martha Stewart Stars border and a polka dot ribbon.

The sentiments were made sing a mixture of Greeting Farm stamps and Doodlebug rub-ons, I was very crafty with these as I had used up several of the letters I needed so I re-crafted them using other letters i.e the 'd' is infact a 'p' and the 'y' is a 'j' with a 'u' on the top!


I saw these paper mache letters in Hobbycraft and thought it would make a nice little gift. I wanted to keep it pretty simple so it would grow with him so just a paint job with a Crown tester pot, a few pears, ribbon and his name. It's a bit more simple than I like but I'd spent that long on his card I was pushed for time!

Lastly a Gift Card using scraps from the card.

I added a strip of ribbon to the inside to keep the money in place.


Well thanks for looking, i'm hoping t be back with more cards.

In the mean time I'd like to enter my card into a couple of challenges : -
