I'm back with my second post of the day. It's supposed to be my Inky Impressions post but there's no Inky Impressions card from me today!! I started off full of good intentions that I would post this week (its not my week but I really liked the challenge and wanted to do it).
Inky impressions are being sponsored by Kenny K this week and that was another good reason to join in! I saw this Kenny K special 4th of July digi and knew it was perfect for my nephews 21st birthday card, that was a few weeks ago so I decided to keep it for this challenge. I made the box to match and tied it up with red white and blue twine and I had put a little money pouch underneath the easel to give him money for his birthday. When I gave him the box at his party (he was keeping all of his presents to open when he got home) - he was really puzzled as to what was in the box - bet he didn't expect a sassy little girl!!
I really pushed the boat out with this one and got the 4th of July papers from Raspberry Road as well (at least I think that's what it was- it was weeks ago and I can only half remember - they're definitely Raspberry road!!)
I had a great idea for my Inky card too - but it never got any further than that - my Grandson Jacob was christened at the weekend and we had a party for 60 people afterwards in our house and I'm afraid my inky card got lost in the preparations! Here is Jacob his with his Mammy and Daddy - my daughter Alison and son in law Steven. As you can see Jacobs a bit of a bruiser and he's really long- he's only 6 months old but is now into 12-18 months size clothes - he's got legs like tree trunks -his Mammy had legs like those when she was a baby - thankfully they slimmed down when she got bigger!!)
Anyway - back to the card
