My baby boy Sam turned 4 years old yesterday, it doesn't seem that long ago since he was a baby. We have had 5 days of birthday celebrations for him with various friends and family members, so he has been pretty spoiled. He asked me to make him a construction cake for daycare on Wednesday, and this is the cake I made him.It has some matchbox construction vehicles and a whole lot of crunchie rubble all over it, with tiny teddy biscuits scattered around as workers. Everyone at daycare loved it - except the poor teachers who had to clean up the mess after the kids had eaten it!
Sam has been monster truck mad for a while now, so I decided to try and make him a monster truck birthday card. This is what I came up with ...
I used the ute from loads of love and coloured it the same as one of his favourite trucks, Sudden Impact. I used the wheels from the truck in my by land stamp set and then added some extra bars down to them and on the tray of the ute. I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with my new star punch.
I decorated the inside like this...
He was so excited that I had made him a monster truck card, and I was very excited when he actually recognised that it was supposed to be Sudden Impact! Obviously my drawing skills aren't as bad as I thought they were!
I have a birthday card for one of Jess' friends to share with you next time, but until then...
Keep on creating.
