I’m a bit slow on my posts from Convention and the birthday party the week before. Life is sure busy…. I only feel like I’m ever so slightly catching up now on being away for Convention! Convention post to follow soon….. promise.
This is the Birthday card I made for my 5 year old….
I found this card online that was my inspiration http://rachelcapps.wordpress.com/2010/03/14/batman-belt-punch-art/
From that card I thought about the punches and oval Bigz Dies I had a was able to use my Word window punch a the smallest Oval shape to make this Bat…. I was a bit chuffed about it . I just folded the oval in half and made a few select punches and one little snip with my scissors for the ears. I’ve also used the retired Sanded background stamp on the Basic Grey card stock to give a metal look.
Below is the Indoor Camping party set up in our lounge room…. it’s a bit dark but that was the fun bit. Don’t panic, the ‘campfire’ is just a fan with some night lights wrapped in cellophane. Hot dogs were eaten, Games played and of course…..
CAKE EATEN!!! This is the Tent Cake I made with my three little boys coming out of the tent. Macauley is the one in the green hat, Finn is the one next to him and Archer is the little fella peeping out the side of the tent. The logs are chocolates with a candle in the middle to light.
And here is the Birthday Boy Macauley (and little brother Archer checking out the cake). The kids had a massive time and poor Chris and I sure enjoyed a glass of wine after all the party-goers had gone home and the cleaning up was done.
