make 'em laugh.
I don't usually post on the weekends, but I wanted to create a little something fun before I go on official birthday burn-out (is it even possible to be on burnout for something that hasn't happened yet?)
Sofia's sewing party is in 6 days... and so far:
banners and decor.... created.
favors boxes... made and filled.
altered t-shirts for the girls... done.
embroidery hoop craft.... ready.
Things are under control for her party, but I have a week of house-cleaning, cooking, and baking to look forward to. And, somewhere in there, I have to start crafting for Thomas' monster party (which is scheduled for the next Saturday... ) oh man.
So, instead of party-crafting, I did the obvious I'm-a-little-stressed thing and I created this card to add to the lawn fawn "make 'em laugh" pool, using the newest retro-sketch:
Someone go flip him over again!
Right? Right???? (is this mic on? *tap, tap*)
A few card details: I omitted the ice pack from the turtle's head (from "on the mend") and drew in a little bit of what was missing from his shell with a memento black marker. The grass strip is from "gnome sweet gnome" and I computer-generated the greeting.
Happy Sunday, and see you tomorrow!

You certainly have me laughing. I just realized that I have 3 months until Johsua's 1st birthday and I am already feeling the pressure. You will have to share your secrets ;)ReplyDelete
This is a very funny card. And cute. Don't stress too much about the party. Just enjoy them while they are young. It goes so quickly. I'm sure both parties will be really fun for all the kids.ReplyDelete
