Happy Birthday Me Hearty!!

Thank you for being patient with me this month... Sometimes it feels like time is flying by and others it feels like it's crawling. I was very lucky and had Mum with us for a few days which was a HUGE help with the packing. I tell you what though, I'm getting sick of the sight of boxes!! Fingers crossed this move is the right step and we don't have to move again for a while....

Last week Luana was a bit of a social butterfly and had 2 birthday parties on the one day. For the little boy (she calls him and his sibling her 'brothers') I put together this cute card (if I do say so myself!!) as he had a pirate themed birthday this year:

I made this cute little pirate all by myself!!! No blog hopping for inspiration this time! His head, body and bandanna are the 1 3/8" circle punch, with the bandanna ends being a petal of the 5 petal flower punch cut down and a crop-o-dile circle for the knot. His arms and hands are the word window punch. His good eye is another crop-o-dile circle and his mouth and eyepatch are the corner of a scallop square. The '7' is trimmed down from the On Board Simon (retired) one and edged with a Brilliant Blue marker. The halo behind it was made with the two circle punches. Matey's Map jumbo wheel (retired) provided just the right touch for the background.

Luana's friend thought it was 'awesome' too which is the main thing!

Must be off to pack yet another box - it feels like it will never end!!
