Happy Birthday Jake

Hi there

I know - two posts in a row!  The last 5 weeks or so have been rather hectic in our house to say the least BUT hopefully things are going to get back to normal soon.  Our rental is almost ready to let and we have finally got a date for Phil's operation - Thursday 22 May :).

Today's card is one I made for our neighbours son who turned four on Monday.  He and his little brother are the ones I babysit on a Monday night.  Jake is rather cute and calls us Uncle Phil and Auntie Paula.  He comes up the drive to visit us - you know it's him as there's a LOUD banging on the door :)  Jake is into lego at the moment so that made it easy for the design of the card - some form of lego blocks.  I've made a few lego cards but wanted a different style and found this idea on the net - thanks Tina.

I raised my 'dots' with dimensionals - great way to use up the outer edge of your dimensional sheets.  It's a bit hard to see in the picture but the black mat has been run through the Bigshot with the Decorative Dots embossing folder.

And of course this needed some form of box for chocolates - so I carried the lego theme across

And here's the whole gift

Card Stock - Basic Black, Whisper White, Real Red, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green
