Good morning crafty friends and a happy Easter to you all... Hope you are all enjoying the extra long weekend...

The boys have done their Easter egg hunt this morning and now have way too much chocolate to eat.. I May have to help them ;-)

Thanks for all your comments on yesterday's post, unfortunately we never made it to the beach as the weather wasn't as nice as we expected.. We decided on the zoo instead, had a great day out with the boys.. Really enjoying spending some quality family time together this holiday... Something we don't do enough of, downside of working for yourself and having no employees :-(

It's Ronnie's birthday on Wednesday, can't believe my baby will be 5, he is growing up so fast..
Anyway here is his card from mommy and daddy

As soon as I saw these images and papers over at Pink gem designs I knew I had to use them for Ronnie's card..
I die cut the bunting and used peel offs for his name.. Punched some stars and added faux stitching and a peel off number,.  Then finished the card with some of Ali's fantastic new Silhouette dinosaur ribbon from crafty ribbons...


Right I'm off to get some work done while hubby and Harley are at the skate park

Have a great Sunday

Camouflage invites

Hello again everyone 

Back with my second post for today, hope you've all had a nice Good Friday

I'm just popping by to show you some boys invites I have made, I also made a matching themed birthday card.  
The birthday boy is into the black ops type game so thought the  Kenny  K digi image would be perfect..

I used a6 size cars blanks for these with some loose DPs from my stash (sorry unsure of the name)
I stamped invitation onto some cream tags and attached some camouflage ribbon from my stash 

I coloured the kenny k image using my polychromos, embellished with burlap and buttons 


That's all from me for today,..

Back tomorrow with another card share
