Another Day, Another Birthday

Its a miracle, I've now posted something a few days in the row. The world must be coming to an end ha ha.

It appears that birthday season at school has started. I hope to heck that my kid does not get invited to every other kids birthday party, that she knows from school. First I don't want to go to 15 birthday parties, and I certainly don't want to buy presents for them all. But making cards, sure I'll do that.

She has a birthday party this afternoon for a little boy in her class. Now being the Mom of girls it is actually really difficult for me to come up with cards for little boys. I have very few non feminine stamps in my craft drawers, and I'm used to all things pink.

So I went hunting, and I found my very seldom used SU Wagon Full of Fun stamp set and went from there. I decided to make a wagon full of cupcakes. Pretty straight forward. The cupcakes ended up looking kind of weird in the middle the way they are stacked up but I still think it looks pretty cool. My daughter helped me pick out the colours for the cupcakes, and gave me the brilliant idea of using buttons for the wheels (ahhhh what a good little crafter)

I know the kid will not really give a crap that he's getting a homemade card, that took a lot of thought and actually a lot of work (cutting out nine little cupcakes was a bit of a pain), but it gave me something to do to get my creative juices flowing.

  1. So cute! I love all those cupcakes and the button wheels! I bet the little boy's mom will save it.
