Robot Birthday

Hello, and welcome!

Is there anybody there?
I really do hope so, but wouldn't blame you if you weren't..........does this mean I'm talkin' to meself?....haaaaa!  Wouldn't be the first time!

There has been an awful lot of other stuff going on in my life, but it's time to put it all on a shelf, and maybe it will sort itself out.........fingers crossed.

I had to apologise to my Teamies at Card Crafter's Circle........I just had no opportunity to make a Design Team card for this week's challenge, which is WEDDINGS, but they were very gracious and kind, as always.......and they made some absolutely gorgeous creations, so don't forget to drop in on the challenge blog and take a peek......this week's sponsor is   
and the randomly chosen winner will receive 2 sheets (8 images) from Linnie's fabulous range!

Well, I'm finally finding the time to show you a little, simple card I made for Finlay's 6th birthday (grandson #6), this week.  He is a gifted crafter....he makes scrapbooks, cards, and is a marvel at paper engineering!
His Mum, (Gillian, daughter #2), themed his party to Junk Modelling.....tons of cardboard, empty yogurt pots, egg cartons, glue, etc., and the kiddles had a whale of a time building weird and wonderful creations......I had a bit of a dabble, meself...just to be sociable...haaaa!

Gillian baked Finlay the most fantastic robot cake.....sorry, no pics...forgot me camera, duuh!.......and I carried on the theme with this little offering......

I started with an orange card base and layered a piece of  white, then blue card, and stamped random stars onto another piece of white card, and edged with orange ink.  I then embossed the stamped piece with a Cuttlebug folder, (wheels and cogs), and stamped a birthday greeting near the bottom of the card front.......

I love this ikkle fella.......he's a freebie from Melonhedz........and I really enjoyed colouring him up with my trusty Promarkers.....pure joy....haahaa!  He's popped onto foamies, for a bit of dimension.......

Didn't have any orange corrugated card, so scored this scrap.........a little wooden star was covered with a scrap of blue starry paper,  then a peel-off number to finish.
Finlay thought it was cute!

I'm hoping to be back with another boy card, very soon!
