Cakey Watt, What?


Morning, morning, morning! Well it's nearly the weekend, which is a nice to start to the day, don't you think?

This is a little card I made the other afternoon for My Mum's Craft Shop. I had a little free time whilst the boys were at the park, but I must've been pining for them, because when I was rifling through my stash trying to decide what to make, all the lush girly stuff was thrown to one side! And instead, Cakey Watt, caught my eye.


When I was looking at him all I could think of was someone shouting 'How Old?' So that was the sentiment sorted. (I used an old (Hero Arts) alphabet stamp set I have knocking around for that. In (the benefit of) hindsight I shoudda done it on the pooter so I coudda (woudda) included a question mark, but never mind!) That led me onto to this number paper and you'll know by now I love to stalk the aisles at the local DIY store for suitable (but expensive) little extras! I have to go to different stores each time so they don't think I'm a complete loon for buying so many washers and nuts!

So that was me sorted until, several hours later, two hungry, dirty boys descended on The Bat Cave and peace, was shattered, but I think we all had a good time!

Recipe

Papers: Out of the Blue, Lime Twist; MME
Image: Cakey Watt; Christy Croll for Stamping Bella
Sentiment: Friendship Ticket Stamps; Whimsy Stamps
