Our little champion

 Happy Birthday Jake!

It's our son's birthday next weekend, Jake will be turning 7!!  I have spent nearly the entire weekend getting things ready for his 'MONSTER Birthday Bash', he is having a Halloween themed birthday party with his friends here at home.  We have lots of spiders, cobwebs and scary candy for the loot bags, there will also we some slimy green goo with floating eye balls as part of the obstacle course that Jake has designed.

I have also finished his card, I stayed away from the monster theme for this as Jake had already asked for a basketball card for his big day, he loves to shoots hoops in the back yard or go down to the local court with his Dad and brother to play some ball.

Materials Used; Altered TGF stamps, Handy Ian and Dylan with sentiment from TGF's Roll Call set, SU Basic Black & Pumpkin Pie card stock, Cuttlebug Bubble embossing folder, DP from Kaiser Craft Konstrukt and Making Memories, Kaiser Craft chipboard number, Making Memories Rub-On Alphabet, tape and brads from my stash pile.

Challenges Entered;

Club Anya WTW: Distressing

Happy Anniversary!

A Cheeky Anniversary!

This weekend we celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary, boy how time flies when your having fun!  Our friends beautiful garden wedding yesterday brought back so many memories and even a few happy tears and then we celebrated with a family meal at a lovely Italian restaurant.

This is the cheeky little card I made my wonderful DH for the occasion, with a little bit of Halloween as it is the month of Spooktober.  I used two of my TGF Hallo digi's with a little alteration,  the idea is that if he unwrapped the old 'mummy' he would still find a cheeky little devil hiding inside!

Materials Used; TGF Hallo She Devil , Spook Mummy & Sentiments from the Roll Call set, copic ciao markers, SU Basic Black card stock, Kaiser Craft DP, Creative Impression Rub-On, sticker and button from my stash pile.
