A little birthday cheer

One of our dear friends celebrated his birthday on Wednesday and today we got to go out and have breakfast with him and his wife and brother. It was such a lovely day for breakfast on their patio! Well during the week I let Jas go out and find the perfect present - and late lastnight, I realised that he didn't get a card to go with it! Jas has never been one for cards - even I don't get them from him, so I thought I better whip one up. Here is what I came up with - with a little inspiration from "tracyscraplady4life" over at 2Peas


The recipient of this card is an avid golfer and when I saw (the original) card I knew I had to make it! It may be a little hard to see, but the golf ball has been embossed with dots just like a real golfball, then I gently coloured over it to help highlight the "dents". The ribbin is actually twill, and the sentiment is raised on 3D foam and had the edges inked. I stamped a line of party hats inside then added our little note.

Now are you ready for your heart to melt?!?! My sweet little Sophia had a moment of dress-ups on Friday. You see Amber was attending a disco at school and while her daddy was off picking her up - I was at home trying to neaten up her Aurora wig so that she could be transformed into Sharpay (from High School Musical). For a bit of fun and amusement I put it on Sophia - here are the resulting photos - she had a ball!

Isn't she just adorable!!!! And perfect for wigs cause she has no hair to hide or pin up (like her sister) The wig lasted all of about 2 minutes before she ripped it off laughing and pulling at the hair! Maybe I should try the red Ariel wig next?!.....
