Is everybody happy that it is Friday?! Yea!!! I have two of the grandkids over night tonight, so I will be very busy :-)
I did a card for the Little Scraps of Heaven sketch challenge :-) I did what I consider a Boy's birthday card and will probably give it to my grandson on his 7th birthday. OMG! He is my youngest grandchild and I can't believe he is this old!! My oldest one will be 18 in October :-0 Now that ages you! Okay, back to the card ... we were given this sketch to follow:
And this is my card:
To tell the truth, I was going to make an easel card, but I cut the pieces a little too big :-) I just love the "Goat Kids" file and I thought it would be fun to use the play on words ... outside and inside. I really had to get inventive to stamp my sentiments. I use the works 'just' and 'say' from an Inkadinkadoo stamp that said 'just saying hi'. And I used the same set on the inside for the decorative circle and 'happy birthday'. 'Goata, best and No Kidding' were using individual stamps in a set from the $1 bin at Michael's. Finally, I got "Your are the berry" from My Thoughts Exactly sets. WHEW! The adorable paper piecing was all made using scrap paper. The background is cardstock and a very boy paper from the "All About Boy" stack I got a while back...this was a great stack and not just for boy things :-) I added some olivy green ribbon from 3 Girl Jam, a couple of flowers from the stash, brads, inking and pinning. I won't say it was fast and easy, but I am happy with it! Hope you like it, too!!
I'm sure there are some "anything goes" or other challenges that I could enter, but I am running soooo far behind and I wanted to get it posted.
