Dinosaur birthday!!!!

Well its sunday again!!!!! I just don't know where my week has gone !!!
I went t a partylite candle party, the candles smelt soooo good. I didn't get any though as I only had a few pennies so I chose a giraffe safari tealight holder. When it is lit you pop it intoa domed holder and when the candle flickers it looks like the giraffeis walking. Mo will love it.
Then yesterday it was Mo's friends party in a big ondoor play area, he had a fabulous time and was pooped out by the end of the party. His little friend Molly loves dinosaurs and minibeasts and things like that. I had been talking to her mum so knew she would be having a dinosaur cake so I decided to crack out my basic grey archaic paper.

My basic grey archaic collection is one of those paper packs that I have and lovingly stroke the packet every once in a while because I like it soooooo much!!!!! but it was just right for Molly so I opened the packet and put it to use!!!
I cut my cardstock so it was 5.5" x 5.5" and inked the edges brown. I made a base mat with the checked paper and popped a circle cut with my george cart and squished through my cuttlebug with the tiny bubbles folder and inked it with the brown too.
I cut a 1" strip from the sqaure patterned paper and tied a bit of brown organza ribbon around it. I threaded some through one of my matching basic grey archaic buttons and used a big glue dot to stick it to the card. I used some of the alphabet stickers from the pack to spell out molly on the circle and then popped out the little dinosaur sticker. I popped him onto some cardstock left over from the card first and then cut around him to make him a bit stronger. I popped some foam squares on the back of him to pop him out a bit. Mo loved it!!!!

Right, I must get on as I have a bit of laundry to sort out before I can go out to my garage and have a play!!! I have a little book to finish and a wedding card to do as well as a challenge card which I am very excited about!!!!
