I tempted fate didn't I!! Had all the carpets cleaned upstairs after Sam's mishap last Friday and what did he do? Yes, you've guessed it, he threw up over the landing carpet on Monday!! I didn't know whether to laugh or cry! Anyway, everything is sorted now....kept Sam off school yesterday just to make sure he was OK and he's fine and the carpet has been cleaned for a second time!!
Didn't get chance to do much crafting yesterday and then it suddenly dawned on me that it's Sam's birthday a week Friday and I hadn't even attempted to make his party invitations! Started them last night when the boys had gone to bed and finished at just gone Midnight......I didn't have to make very many but they weren't turning out how I wanted them to. In the end gave up and settled for this which I'm not happy with. Trouble is, I haven't got time to make new ones so they will have to do.
Sam's party is being held at Monkey World so wanted a monkey theme to the invitations. Firstly, I used a tutorial from Claudia for this pocket card. The main image is Camilla the Gorilla from High Hopes and I really don't think I've done her justice! Have coloured her very quickly with Brushables and realised afterwards that gorillas are grey aren't they? Got the idea of her sat with a balloon from a card Katharina recently did. The cardstock is Bazzill, paper is Daisy Bucket, ribbon is Bazzill, bag of peanuts stamp is High Hopes and party invitation stamp is from the set "So Inviting" by MFT. Balloon is a pre-cut embellishment from my stash and the word "party" was printed with my Dymo. Tag for insert was made with SU punch with eyelets from my stash.
Hope to do better next time!
