Happy Birthday, Friend

Once your kids start school there is a definite increase in birthday party invites! I think I may need to keep a stock of boy and girl toys from Costco on hand and start having a bunch of cards made ahead of time!

Amie was invited to the 4 Cats Art Studio for a little boy's party. They have very cool parties there, but you definitely have to wear clothes that are ok to have paint splatters on. We wore the same clothes from the last party there - and now yellow joins the pink and purple splatters from the last visit! We actually framed the splatter art poster from last time and hung it up on the wall.

Of course, having 3 girls means I have more pink, flowery paper and embellishments on hand than boy stuff, but I pulled out some shiny silver and blue cardstock and used some stickers from the Rocket Age 12x12 shape stickers page by October Afternoon. I embossed a 'Make A Wish' sentiment with Silver Tinsel embossing powder on a hand cut banner and followed a sketch from this week's challenge at the Scrapbookers Paradise blog and Amie was all set!

  1. What a wonderful card for a boy, Karla! And may I say that Amie's artwork is fabulous! Thanks for playing along with the Drunken Stampers 16 Candles challenge!

  2. Awesome card!! Thanks for playing along with the Drunken stampers for the sixteen candles challenge this week!

  3. Your card is really cute! Perfect for a young little man :) Love the splatter art too - looks like it would be a lot of fun to create! Thanks so much for Playing in Paradise. Hope to see you again soon.

    Hugs, Dawn

  4. I only have boys, and I swear I collect girly stuff in self-defense, lol! I think this is a perfect boy card - well, really, who doesn't like robots?? And how cool that I get to thank you for playing along with 2 of my teams - so glad to have you in Paradise AND with the Drunken *hiccup* Stampers :)

  5. I didn't get a chance to comment last week, but this is such an adorable card! I love how you interpreted the sketch. A party where you get to make Splatter Art sounds like heaven to me ... getting it out of the clothes ... not so much. LOL Very smart to wear the same clothes ... she is going to end up with a funky outfit!! Thanks so much for Playing in Paradise with us!
