A bit on the riotous side...

This is a birthday card I recently made for my little boy. It is a bit on the riotous side, and I nearly wasn't going to put it up here, but it has kinda grown on me:

The cardstock I have used here is Tangerine Tango, Basic Black and Brushed Silver. I have stamped the rocket image in Black Stazon on watercolour paper and coloured it with an aquapainter and classic ink (in Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point and Baja Blue).

The black ribbon is from the Valet Ribbon Originals pack. The sentiment is from the Think Happy Thoughts set and has been punched out using the 1 1/4" circle punch and mounted on a metal edge tag.

I also wanted to show you a couple of shots from our Mother's day bushwalk today:

Who knew tomatoes could be so much fun?

We found this lovely grassy meadow...and what better thing to do, but have a little snooze!

...or a run, take you pick ;-).

Hope you had a lovely weekend.

Thanks again for visiting.

I'm glad you put it on Sam...I think it's fantastic....and having two boys of my own I find their cards the hardest to make!

Love that last shot of your beautiful little boy...just gorgeous!Xx
