WOYWW #185

DSCF1661 It's more a case of What Was on Your Workdesk today.  I had made this birthday card for our youngest Grandson's birthday but forgot to take a photo of it after I had made it and it was still on the workdesk.  It was a fun card to make using one of the papers which will be available in January and some bright coloured SU cardstock.  The stamp set is SU's Make a Monster and great for young children, the beauty of this set is you can make the monsters as freaky as you like - I kept them fairly simple as I didn't want Logan to be afraid of them.  The banner stamp is from the retired Party this Way SU stamp set along with some retired alphabet stamps.  The colours I have used are Tangerine Tango, Summer Starfruit, Indigo Island, Rich Razzleberry and Pool Party.  Don't forget to check out some of the other WOYWW desks thanks to Julia at Stamping Ground.

DSCF1655DSCF1643It doesn't seem possible that Logan is two already.  It's also hard to believe that his mum actually made this fantastic birthday cake (our daughter has never really been very domesticated) but what a difference being a mother has made!  She did have a little assistance from MIL but only on quantities to make the cake.  Logan thought it was fantastic too.

It's also MIL's birthday today and later we will be going down to her house later and celebrating with a chinese takeaway so it's party time all day today.

This was a totally fun visit, Linda. Love the card, love the cake (WOW) and love that adorable little red-haired boy!!

(I think you meant to say that your daughter wasn't very domestic. Otherwise, one thinks she might be a wild undomesticated animal. Then again, perhaps that IS what you meant! LOL!)

All the best to you for a Happy Christmas and very merry new year!!
