Hoppy Birthday - boy's birthday card

Good Morning!
It looks like it's going to be another beautiful day here again today :)
It was lovely yesterday being able to hang clothes on the washing line to dry
instead of putting them in the tumble dryer!

My card today is for a friend of Caleb's who is having a party next week.
It's not like me to be organised this early is it?  lol

Card size 6"x6"
The image is from digistamp boutique and I coloured him with Copics
Skin - E00, E11, E20......Hair - E50, E31, E33, E29, E49
T-shirt - Y11, Y15, Y21......Shorts - B12, B93, B95
Frog - G03, G06, G14.....Ground - C3, C5, C7
The papers are from a Basic Grey paper pad - Cupcake collection.

I thought he looked like he could balance a frog on his head
so I added the little frog which is one of the extras you get in the stamp set!

 The sentiment is printed and cut in a speech bubble shape with the Cameo
and then raised with foam pads.
I added the age 8 to his t-shirt with WordArt.
Phoebe is recovering and will hopefully be back to school tomorrow
but yesterday she had me in stitches.
Because it was hard for her to eat with a sore throat,
I gave her (what I thought) a long list of yummy choices for her lunch.....
she listened carefully and at the end looked at me woefully and said......
is that all you've got?

Well......(as a last resort) there's tomato soup and bread for dipping...
.....I'll have that please!

They always want what I'd prefer they didn't

Thank you for visiting me today!
See you tomorrow
Take care :D

Gorgeous card Sarah, perfect for an 8 year old boy. I love how you combined the images and the speech bubbles are so much fun.

Great cards on your blog - I love your CAS style (something which I struggle with). Have a great day and enjoy the sunshine. Hugs, Denise x

Balancing a frog on your head is just the sort of thing you do when you're an 8 year old boy! Very cute and I like his t shirt. Poor Phoebe - is she no better? Vicky x
