Emergency Birthday

There we all were plodding about in our PJ's way past mid-morning having a lovely lazy Saturday when I suddenly remembered my Isaac is meant to be going to a 6th birthday party this afternoon! OMG! I toyed with not reminding him about it but then guilt kicked in and I figured that it will do him good to see some more of his classmates before they go back to school. However, because I only just remembered the party, I obviously hadn't prepared anything for it, so Thank God for Magnolia! I have only used their stamps on 'adult' cards up to now, but of course, they're perfect for children. I escaped to my room for half an hour and this is what I emerged with....
One of the very first things I ever bought when I began crafting (or should that be when I first discovered QVC!!! LOL!) was a set of Fiskars templates and to this day they have sat on my shelves unused - till now that is! I used the largest heart shape to cut the hearts out and a notch & die tool to do the scalloping around the background heart. The slider is my brand new Cuttlebug die which arrived only this morning (I am absolutely mad about a lot of the Cuttlebug products) and the corners and 'hinges' were freebie stickers with Issue 30 of Scrapbook Inspirations.
Thanks for dropping in! ;o)
