Presents-a-Plenty!

Hey!

Happy Sunday! I hope you've all had a fabby weekend so far...I've been off on a lil' road trip to visit my guy's family to celebrate not one, but two birthdays with the most scrummy Italian meal out - I actually opted for a salad which isn't like me, but it was the yummiest salad I've ever had which included good helpings of apple, walnuts, gorgonzola and honey! Paired with a crisp, dry white wine I was in summer dining Heaven!

Anyways enough about food, both birthdays were guy ones so cue the masculine card panic LOL! Well I've kinda cheated and his youngest brother will be getting this card that I thought was kinda cool, hip and OK for a 19 year old; I realise that I need to actually do something with the stash of cards I create rather than keep thinking that I need to make a new card for every new occasion that arises!

So today, I'm not here to share cards for those occasions because there's yet another guy birthday in our family today!!! My nephew, Charlie will be celebrating his first birthday - seems like only yesterday he was born, doesn't time fly by!

So as I sat down to make his card (I had no suitable cards in my stash for this occasion!) I checked the mail first to find some stampy love had been delivered from Practicing Creativity Designs! Oh, as soon as I tore the padded envie open, I just had to ink this sweet set up and make Charlie's card with it:

Now because I'm on a lil' kick with kinesthetic cards, I figured I'd have a little fun; just pull that white ribbon tab will ya?!

Presents-a-Plenty!!!

Card Recipe
Stamps: Practicing Creativity Designs - The Whole Cycle/PTI - Star Prints/Hero Arts
Ink: Memento Black/PTI Fresh Snow
Cardstock: PTI Spring Rain/Ripe Avocado/Stamper's Select White
Accessories: Promarkers/Nestabilities/Cuttlebug/PTI Fresh Snow Twill Ribbon/Dovecraft Chalks


Yup, I know you're used to it by now but it still makes me smile :D

Now because I used a method of transport on this card I'm finally catching up with the Papertrey Peeps Challenges too! This one should hopefully qualify for Challenge #9 I'm so behind but catching up so ever so slowly! Hope those Peeps will forgive me!

Catch ya later!
