Today is my youngest's 10th birthday so now both of my boys are in double figures :) He is currently working his way through an Avengers Lego set so we have at least bought ourselves a few hours of peace and quiet!!
I hope that my US blog friends have been enjoying this 4th July weekend. I have a celebration card to share with you:
I used some very old firework stamps and combined them with a sentiment from Mama Elephant. I will enter the card in to the current red, white and blue challenge over at Less Is More and at CASology where the cue card is Pop. I will also link up at the current CAS challenge at Happy Little Stampers which is stamping along with Virginia's View challenge too :)
Before I go I will share the birthday card that I made for Jack:
I coloured a rocket stamp from Inky Doodles and popped it up over some starry patterned paper. The rocket is popped up using some folded cardstock to give it more movement and dimension. The sentiment is from Papertrey. I will link up at AAA Cards where the theme is starry night.
Thank you for your visit and comments - they are all very much appreciated!
Awwww both of these are sooooo adorable! Especially that rocket card! I'm sure he lived it. And the fireworks are the perfect patriotic design!ReplyDelete
Fabulous CAS card and I love the rocket card too.ReplyDelete

These are both fabulous, Sarah! A perfect take on the cue word for the first card and I love the dimension of the second card. Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!ReplyDelete
Beautifully stamped, Sarah! Thanks so much for playing Virginia’s View “100% Stamped” Challenge! Hope to see your lovely work soon again!ReplyDelete
Those fireworks are fabulous, Sarah ... such brilliant explosions of colour ... and what a fun card for your son ... the dimension of the rocket against that starry sky is fantastic! Anita :)ReplyDelete

Awesome birthday card! Beautiful CAS 4th of July card, Sarah!ReplyDelete
Two fantastic cards Sarah!! Love the design of your stamped mix of fireworks in red and blue ... so perfectly done. And Jack's rocket ship card is adorable!! Love that you've added some movement with folded card stock ... I'm sure he loved that too! :) Thanks for playing along at Happy Little Stampers. xxReplyDelete
Crisp, clean and as fabulous cards as every Sarah. Love the shapes and design of the red, white and blue one but equally love the cute astronaut and perfect for those little 'space' boys. Thanks so much for linking up and playing along at AAA Cards & Less is More.ReplyDelete
I really love the design of your celebrate card, even though I popped in here to comment on the rocket card, which is just adorably sweet. The starry paper is perfect and the popped up rocket is just a great finishing touch. Fantastic cards!ReplyDelete
Your celebration card looks fab, great firework display!
Jack's card is brilliant though, really fun and yet still so CAS, love it (my younger son is also a Jack!)
Thanks for joining us this week
Less is More
Both in double digits, I have another two years before that happens. They grow up way too fast!!! Love all those fireworks, such crisp stamping and brilliant in the red/white and blue. I bet he loved his rocket ship card, its so adorable but not too young either. Max loves Lego too (and so does his Mum....hence she has bought way too much over the years.....naughty me.....).ReplyDelete
Two wonderful cards. I am sure your boy was 'over the moon' with it! Sorry I could;t resist! Hugs Bev xReplyDelete
Really lovely cards! Adore the first one xReplyDelete
Very pretty cardReplyDelete
Love that popped up spaceship with it's cute little astronaut. Looks great over that starry DP. Wonderful take on the challenge. Thanks so much for linking up and playing with us at AAA Cards!ReplyDelete
Two fabulous cards, Sarah! Lovely stamping and placement on your celebration card and that rocket is cool! Thank you for sharing at Happy Little Stampers.ReplyDelete
Your rocket looks fab, great dimension. And the cluster of fireworks is fab, such great placement.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing at Less is More and Happy Little Stampers.
Your little rocket ship is cute and so adorable and the perfect setting for a starry sky. So glad you could join us at AAA Cards.ReplyDelete
Love both your cards Sarah and the rocket ship is so darn cute! xxReplyDelete
