Stressed and Challenged!!!

I am feeling a little stressed as Aaron has 3 friends over for a sleep over.  There are currently 5 lads laid out on my lounge floor, eating chocolate, watching a DVD but talking to each other like they are miles can they all talk sooo loudly when they are not too far from each other (I don't live in a mansion!)  In all honestly, they have been great really, can't complain!

I had been hoping to get a bit of crafting done tonight but that hasn't gone to plan but I won't complain about it!  I am going to try with the Simply Stampin challenge again this week.

It's a colour challenge and wasn't sure what to do but came up with something.  It's my Dads birthday next week so I made this for the boys to give him.

I've used a new stamp set called Blue Ribbon.  I did mean to cut the 'Happy Birthday' with a circle die but didn't look at it first so didn't realise that it was a star shape but quite liked it so I left it.  I have stamped the sentiment onto pool party card with versamark and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I did the same with the stars. The bottom is cut using the adorning accents edgelits and embossing folders.
I then decided to add 'Gramps' to make the card more personal.....

Anyway, hopefully I won't have a really late night, I'm yawning already though so the boys better not keep me up too late!!!!

Thanks for stopping by,
Take care

  1. Great use of the challenge colours. I love the three little ribbons sticking out at the side. I am sure 'Gramps' will love it.
