Happy Monday to you!!! I hope that you had a fabulous weekend! Our weekend was SUPER fun and SUPER busy! I had a blast and want to thank each of you that I got to see this weekend and to spend time with! Thank you!
Friday night we had a family party for my nephew, Cohen! He turned three and we headed out to my sister-in-law's house for dinner and just a relaxing evening! I was so excited to help make the birthday cake for Cohen as well. He LOVES dump trucks so we decided to make a dump truck cake (and of course then I got to make a matching card!) The front windshield was a little wonky, but hey, I only make four cakes a year, right???
On Sunday, Nathan was invited to his buddy Griffin's fourth birthday! This party was SUCH A BLAST! It was fun watching a dozen kids ranging in ages from probably 3 to 8 or 9 playing hockey, lego and just being kids! They were making their own fun and having a fun! Knowing I had two parties for two "boy boys" this weekend, I made two of the same cards (and loved them...hope the boys did too:)
Now, the cards were a complete cased idea from Carrie Gaskin (Artistic Avenger). She had a colour challenge a few weeks back and I LOVED her layout and the colours she was using SO I totally stole the idea (and am giving her complete credit!) swapped out the stamp set (Carrie used Button Buddies) and voila! I am so happy with it! Here is the recipe(ish) for the card:
- Old Olive - 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4, 5 1/4 x 1 1/4, 5 1/4 x 1
- Poppy Parade - Two Tags Die (the tag is cut and shortened to fit on a card front)
- Island Indigo - 5 1/4 x 4
- Whisper White - 3/8 x 3, 2 3/4 x 2 1/4, scraps for the dump truck
- Ink - Basic Grey, Island Indigo, Old Olive, Pool Party, Poppy Parade
- Stamps - I Dig You, Dot to Dot
- Other - brads, Island Indigo Ribbon, Bakers Twine
