Welcome Baby Luke

Hi guys and gals,

A few weeks ago one of my dear friends I met through my mums group gave birth to baby number 2, another little (Ok maybe not so little he was 4.5kg) boy. When he was born I made him a card but its taken me a while to get it up on here. But when I saw this weeks challenge at Just Add Ink I thought it would suit perfectly. This weeks challenge is "Just Add Colouring In." I made this card with limited supplies on night shift and didn't have watercolouring paper with me so am not as happy with the colouring in as I would have been with watercolouring paper, That stuff is the bomb! Aside from that I am really happy with how the card turned out, except for my dodgy bow which I royally screwed up at 3 am when tiredness set in. I really hope you like it though...

Riley's 2nd Birthday Invitations

On Sunday my little girl turned 2. I cannot believe that she is 2 already, It seems like only yesterday I was experiencing an awful pregnancy. She has brought us so much joy and I really enjoyed throwing her a birthday party. For her birthday we decided on a cookie monster theme cos she loves Sesame Street and she loves cookies. So I made her the cutest invites, the idea was cased from the lovely Clare McIllhatton. They were so super easy and great for replicating. Here they are...

And here is the cookie pulled out of the middle. On the back of the cookie were all the invite information. CUTE CUTE CUTE!

Stamp Set: Circle Circus
Ink: Early Espresso, Real Red
Cardstock: Real Red, Pacific Point, Whisper White, Creamy Caramel
Accessoires: 1/2" circle punch, Scallop circle punch, 1 1/2" circle punch, Circle die for big shot, Big Shot, Early Espresso Marker

Because my camera is still on the fritz I haven't got too many photos of the party to share I do however have a few shots of the cake and cutest cupcakes ever that me and a few helping friends made for the party. I'm so proud at how it all turned out. When I get a copy of the better photos I'll share them, These were the ones taken on my friends camera phone.

Cookie Monster Cake... Cooooooookieeeee!

The cutest ever cookie monster cupcakes, Full of sugar and yumminess!
