My Son is 4!

It was my son's 4th Birthday today so I thought I would show you the card I made. I used some non SU items on this card because he is a mad Spiderman fan. I made the wall using Brilliant Blue CS that was scored to look like bricks with my Cutter and scoring blade and then sponged on some Brilliant Blue ink and Basic black ink with my sponge daubers. The "Happy Birthday to You!" is from the SU Rub-Ons pack "A Perfect Day" and I have to say they are the easiest Rub-Ons I have ever used. Keep a look out for a fantastic Rub-On Special coming soon. I have used Basic Black CS for the road and the card base is Real Red. His name has been written with my Basic Black Marker.

We wrapped his present in brown paper and my husband drew a cool web on the top and I made a cute little spider out of SU punches. I saw this idea on this blog here by Jenni Oliver. I changed it slightly because I wanted my spider to have 8 legs. It uses the scallop circle, photo corner, 1/2 inch circle and the 1/4 inch circle punches. I used two black scallop circles and attached the legs in between them so they wouldn't fall off.

I have been making so many cards in the last couple of weeks but haven't put them on my blog so hopefully over the next few days I will be posting them on here, so stay tuned.
