And the card I made was this...I can't seem to get any decent photos lately - this doesn't look anywhere near as good as it does in real life. The colours I used are Sahara Sand, Real Red, Bashful Blue, Ballet Blue and YoYo Yellow and the stamp set was my old faithful Simply Said.
I may have to invest in one of those little tents for my photos. Can anyone recommend?
Oh and thank you all for the suggestions for trying to find a Scooby Doo cake. I couldn't find one anywhere so Jake settled for Ben Ten. The party was a great success - even I enjoyed myself! As well as Jake's b'day on Monday it was my hubs b'day on Wednesday so it's been a busy week of celebrations.
There's been no crafting for me this week but I have lots of thank you notes and a 70th Birthday card to make over the weekend so hopefully I'll have something to show you next week.
Have a great weekend!

.... and this is the front... I haven't taken a picture of the back but basically it's the same as above with a blank panel to write a birthday message on. I've 3D'd the hedgehogs again and it was quite bulky when I finished. There was no way it would if fit into an envelope so I made a matching box with a silver elastic belly band with embelishment to go round the middle.It was fairly time consuming to make but it does look lovely. The colours are Pink Passion and Gable Green which go really well with these Doodlebug papers I picked up at the Newbury Show.
Busy day for me today - Jake finishes school at lunchtime and then it's all go for the party preparations on Sunday. We have a birthday cake to find so if anyone knows where I could get an 'off the shelf' Scooby Doo cake from (UK) I'd be very grateful!
Tfl & see ya soon!

...I love this one even if it does look like a blatant case off Bev Rochester..lol We did stop and see Bev whilst at the show and she showed us how to make the flowers with the charms. Hence why this card may look so familiar to you. :) My dangly charm is a bit long so I know for next time to do it a fair bit shorter but hey ho...not the end of the world eh.By the way the hedgehogs have been cut out and 3D'd onto this card. Not sure it shows up that well but if I can fiddle with another pic I have, and it's not too dark I'll edit this post to show you. Before I go, I also wanted to thank you all for the get well wishes when Jake was poorly. He was up and down with a temperature for 3 days in the end and he's only now getting back to his normal self. It was nothing serious though, just a nasty bug but it's always such a worry when they go downhill so quick. It's his 5th birthday next Monday, we're having his friends round for a Scooby Doo party on Sunday including a bouncy castle. It's going to be bedlum so wish me luck! Tfl and see ya soon! Jo :)
