Pirate and monster themed boys birthday cards


Hello Blogland, hope you've had an enjoyable weekend.

I seem to be on a roll lately with making boys birthday cards.  I've two to share with you today.

This first Pirate themed card was made using Scruffy Little Kittens 'Archie' stamp and coloured with Copics and Spectrum Noir pens.  The pirate themed papers and stickers are from a kit by Sandylion that I've had for some years now but are coming in very handy lately.


This card is made again using a stamp by Scruffy Little Kitten 'Freddie', coloured with Copics and Spectrum Noir pens, Spellbinders and Sizzix dies for the sentiments and stars.

Thanks for popping by my lil oasis.

Prom Table Seating Plan and table numbers


Helloooo my fellow Bloggers and to to any new visitors of my lil paperlicious oasis.  
Apologies for being away these past few months, life always has a habit of getting in the way when I would much rather spend my spare time crafting and creating.

Our high school Prom was last week and I was asked the day before if I could help with making a seating plan.  I had just the evening to come up with a table seating plan, Oh Boy! talk about last minute rush, so this is what I came up with.     




I must also apologise for replying late to e-mails, I've discovered that quite a few had gone into my spam/junk folder, which I rarely check.  Thanks for getting in touch and I  hope I've replied to you all.

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
