Boy Birthday Card and Minecraft Cake

Jack turned 8 recently so I broke out my Little Letters thinlits to make him a birthday card.

A quick and simple one in bright happy colours for my bright happy boy. 

Handy tip:  I laid a piece of washi tape over my letters once I'd spelt the words out.  Made it easy to pick them up and place them on my cardstock before running it through the Big Shot.

See the writing down the bottom left and top right.  I did that with my new Alphabet Rotary Stamp.  Love it.  There's 13 rotating 'bits' for you to create your own word or phrase.  It has the alphabet plus some other characters and spaces.  I'm thinking "WHATEVER" might be a handy phrase for Hannah's upcoming 12th birthday card - ha ha.  Seems to be a frequently uttered response lately.  ;-)

Hannah made him a card using MDS - our digital creating software.  She's getting to be a real whiz with it and did this one all by herself.  I just helped with printing.

This year we made Jack a Minecraft birthday cake.  John and Hannah made their delicious brownie recipe. 

I was in charge of cutting, assembly and decorating.   (With some help from Jack's minecraft figurines.)

It was a hit with the birthday boy.

Have a fabulous weekend everyone! 

Cheers, Sue

 

In a creating mood?  Here's some of the things I used for today's card:

Both cards are really great. I could use some lessons from Hannah on the MDS. Love the minecraft cake Sue. Hard to believe Hannah is nearly 12 and racing toward the dreaded 13!!! Good luck with the next couple of years.

Great cards and cake. Happy Birthday Jack.
Um - "whatever" - more of that type of thing to come I'm afraid but it does stop after a while.
