Next weekend my baby is turning Five! FIVE!!!
(okay.....let's not talk about how fast the time has gone by or else I'll just start crying)
Nathan chose a Pirate party theme for his Fifth Birthday and we have had so much fun planning his party together. We created his invitations to look like old treasure maps, burned the edges, rolled them up, sealed them with melted wax and mailed them in bottles. They turned out AMAZING!! :)
Such a special birthday calls for a very special card and I have to tell you that I LOVE the way this came out!! Awhile back I found four of the cuuuutest pirate stamps from Nellie Snellen. I couldn't decide which of the images I liked best so I bought them ALL!! LOL The image I've used on my card is called Treasure and is Nathan's favorite. :) I distressed and inked some fabulous Echo Park paper (Times & Season) for that old treasure map look, but the finished touch turned out to be the yummy Burgundy/Ivory Striped Grosgrain Ribbon from the Ribbon Carousel that I tied into a simple knot and frayed the edges. LOVE IT!!! xoxo
This weeks sketch has a spin....non-traditional Valentines. I think this card also makes a PERFECT valentine! I hope you will find some time to check out what the other Sugar Babies have done with this weeks sketch and then play along with us.
