Now, I have a masculine card to show you as usual on a Monday morning. A couple of weeks ago my youngest son asked me to make a birthday card for a school friend of his. I knew that the boy is an animal lover and this card was the result of me playing around with some items that were out on my desk.
This wonderful paper from the new Well Worn range reminded me of a brick wall - particularly when placed over a sky sponged in with Bashful Blue ink using my cloud template made of punched circles glued together. I thought it might be fun to have somebody peeking over the top!
The somebody in question is a bewildered looking cat made with the owl stamp from Fox and Friends. Doctoring the beak to make a nose and adding whiskers gives it a feline look! I gave him balloons to hold made from scraps of card stock punched into shape using my 1" circle punch (TIP: Use a post it note to hold the circle in place while punching.) The balloon knots and strings are added with markers and I added shine to the balloons with my white gel pen.
The happy birthday sentiment from Party This Way looked quite graffiti-ish to me so I stamped it on the wall using my stamp-a-majig for position. It's quite a random font so it was quite easy to add Elliott's name in the same style.
Supplies needed for the card:
Stamps: Fox and Friends, Party This Way
Ink: Basic Black, Early Espresso, Bashful Blue
Card stock: Whisper White, Scraps for the balloons
Other: Well Worn designer paper, markers, white gel pen, paper snips, stamp-a-majig

I hope you've had a great weekend. We got back from Tynemouth safely, having had a wonderful few days away. I'd only just got the laundry done when it was time to pack another suitcase - this time for my youngest boy who is off today on his school trip to an adventure centre. While I was giving advice about how to fit everything in, I told him we'd miss him while he was away. He agreed cheerfully that it would be pretty dull at home without him then told me kindly that he wouldn't have time to miss us at all as he'd be far too busy doing all the fun activities! I have no doubt that he'll be off this morning without a backward glance but I confess that I'll have an ever so slightly trembly bottom lip...
I hope those of you that celebrate halloween have fun tonight. Can you believe it'll be November tomorrow? Hmmm... I think some Christmas projects are definitely in order this week!
See you soon,
