Hello there! Today is special for me. It's finally October!!!! It celebrates my son's birthday, my anniversary, my favorite season and colors. All of this combined with a whole nonsense of allergies. It's a love/hate relationship.
Anyway, I made this card for my son's 9th birthday. Mind you, he doesn't actually get to keep it in his possession. More like . . . "see it" . . . "now give it back" - we're going to put it up high to keep it safe. (feel free to shake your head at me now)
I was inspired by the design of this card on Pinterest.
The bat and cupcake are from KaDoodle Bug Designs. I did not cut out the skull and crossbones that came with the file. I tend to shy away from such tiny cuts. I will use actual embellishments instead. Brads or small buttons instead of die cut buttons, little bows instead of die cut bows, etc etc.
I want to also give a very special thank you to my crafty friend Barbara with PaperPiecingMemoriesbyBabs. She knows why. I am such a HUGE fan of her work.
Thanks for stopping by today!!
|The typical "Happy Birthday" did not "feel" right for this card.|
So I went with Monster Mash. I thought it was fitting for a 9 year old.
