Hello friends, I’m sorry for the lateness of my posts today but we all went out for the day yesterday to celebrate my son’s 17th birthday and I was too tired to do my posts last night. I cannot believe my baby is 17 – it is making me feel really old lol! He had a fairly low key birthday but had a good day never-the-less.
Onto this week’s stamp with fun challenge which is a lovely sketch by Andrea-Emmi41 and here it is:
and here is my card:
I made this card for my youngest son to give to his brother for his birthday. The Mario image is a bit of a joke as when I kept asking my son what type of birthday cake he wanted he would joke around and say a Mario brothers cake so when I found this image on one of the colouring pages I knew I just had to use it!! I really enjoyed using the sketch as I love the clean lines and layers – which is one of my faves things as you know. I didn’t add any embellishments just the sentiment and the circular age tag. I saw this font on another crafter’s blog called ‘junkos typewriter’ but I stupidly didn’t bookmark the page, I’m sure if you search for it you’ll find it too. I think it is brilliant for men/boys cards as it is so funky!! The fab papers are basic grey.
We are sponsored this week by In2stamps and the lucky winner will receive two stamps.
