Hiya friends! How are you all doing? I thought I’d bop in here and share a cute little birthday card.
Zane started preschool two days a week this past fall and has had so much fun! His little personality has changed so much, and he’s made a few friends. That makes me so happy – I was worried since he’s been home with his parents and his grandma that he’d be a bit of a loner. No worries on that though! Z was invited to a birthday party, so I just had to make a card ;o) He had his party at the fire station and then went back to his house for cake and play. I pounced on the fireman theme and pulled out some Pink Cat Studio stamps that I bought when I was pregnant (4+ years ago). This is Dress Up Billy. I just knew that this little set would come in handy for so many things!
I used an old Sketch For You To Try – once I find a good layout, I’ll keep coming back to it! Plus, I was in a time pinch and just needed to knock his card out quickly. The papers are from the My Mind’s Eye collection Lime Twist Out of the Blue. His boots look a little sparkly in the card picture, but they’re not sparkly, just glossy. I covered them with a glaze pen after they were colored. The fireman accessory with this stamp set is an axe, but the mom is totally against weapons and I didn’t want to possibly offend her in any way, so I left it off.
When I ordered from PTI last month, I ordered the Friends til the End dies but received the alphabet dies. I decided to keep it rather than go through the hassle of returning it. Apparently, PTI has been having some customer service issues. Since I had this wonderful die, I just had to personalize the card! lol
All righty! Here’s a couple challenges I’m entering with this one:
The Pink Elephant #129: Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly: Anything Goes
Paper Sundaes #101: Something Old (stamp set) & Something New (Alphabet die)
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a super day! :) lyss
