Happy Happy Birthday

Tuesday was my sons 11th birthday and so that was why I was up at midnight last night still trying to finish off his birthday card. I've had 11 years you would think I would realise his birthday was imminint but I still manage to leave it to the last minute every year.

So this time I just had to use Mo Mannings fab digi stamp with a couple of Xbox accents I downloaded off the net. I used my recently bought Make the Cut software for my cricut to cut the wording in a suitably xboxesque font. Luckily he thought the card was cool so all the late night effort was worthwhile

rosy posy

I love this little stamp from the new season Lili of the valley stamps .
She is just so cute! Thought I would try and cover a few challenges again but me being me spent far too long getting round to it so of course I am now too late for 3 of the 4 it was meant to cover.
So this time round it is only Cute Card Thursday challenge to include spots or dots that applies.The papers used as BG sugar rush (another fav at the moment. )The rosy stamp is coloured with promarkers (my photography is rubbish and the colours are a lot more vibrant in real life )Used MS doily lace punch, flowers from Wild Orchids site and a Craftwork cards sentiment. First time I've used Tim Holtz Black soot distress ink to edge the papers and I really like the result, not too harsh as I feared it might be.
Hope you like I have a feeling lots of peeps will be getting LOV images on their birthday cards this year!
