A Birthday Card For A Very Special Boy!

No news on Arthur I'm afraid, thank you so much for all your kind messages though, I really really appreciate them all. As you can see Olive has joined the "FIND ARTHUR" campaign trail and is merrily creasing all my leaflets! She is normally an independent little cat but is missing her brother so is staying right by my side!
I had to find my mojo today as it is my Nephews birthday tomorrow and he would be expecting a handmade card from Auntie. I used this sketch from the Sketch Saturday Challenge:
and an ever trusty Penny Black image from my friend Treacle!

As you can see Kyle is 4 tomorrow, I have used foam "Thickers" for his name and American Craft rub ons for the "4" and Doodlebug rub ons for the "today". The rest of the products are all Doodlebug. Apart from the arrow which was cut using a QK Revolution die.

The card holds an in joke for Kyle & I .......I often play silly games with Kyle and he loves Aunties "rude" words.....these really aren't all that rude but he loves it if we are being naughty! One of the little songs I sing him is one that we used to sing at school, it goes "Ma's out, Pa's out, lets talk rude.......Pee po belly bum drawers!" So when I saw this little cat in his boxers (they could actually be shorts but they look like boxers to me!) I thought perfect so I have added the "Rude" words and added a little arrow to his drawers.......

I hope he likes it, he will be more interested in his presents really......but who wouldn't be at 4!

I will keep you all updated with any news on little Arthur, we are all truly lost without him.


  1. Wonderful card for Kyle. He will love it.
    I love your Auntie Nephew story sounds like he has a brilliant Auntie.
