Another card made entirely from scraps - leftovers from the Tyres layout and a few other odds and sods from the scraps file.
It is based on card sketch #4 over at Sketch Support. I changed it slightly, by using 9 candles instead of 10, and adding the 9 in the top right hand corner. I added some stars I punched out with probably one of my oldest punches - I think I bought it while we were stationed in Gibraltar, about 10 years ago! - and added a few flat backed jewels.
Card blank: PaperMania
Patterned Papers: Jillibean Soup, Scenic Route
Number sticker: American Crafts
Sentiment: Craftwork Cards
Flat back jewels: PaperMania
The parcels are all wrapped, the cards are arriving in the post, and the new bike is hidden away in the shed. I have a cake for tomorrow night, after the slap up roast dinner he has requested (after being dissuaded from Mac'n'cheese...) and the boy is beyond excited that it is his birthday. As only nearly 9 year old boys can be. Me, on the other hand, still can't get my head round the fact that he is going to be 9... my baby can't be 9....
