Amazing Birthday Colour Me Playful PP201

I loved having some time to create this morning. I need to build my stash of masculine cards, with three sons celebrating birthdays between now and beginning of October. The colours at the challenge this week for colour me..! look to be perfectly playful for my card using Amazing Birthday stamp set. You'll find it in the new Stampin' Up Catalogue, and it was a Make & Take stamp set for us at Stampin' Up! South Pacific Convention.

The sketch at the Paper Players looks like you should use patterned paer for the centre strip and I bet it looks just great that way too, but I was sure this would also team beautifully with this pennant style greeting stamp. I could have used one of the circular greetings which come in Amazing Birthday, but decided on Love Ya from Just Sayin' . Maybe I will add Sam's name to this too. My pennants at the top are from Tape It, I used that stamp set for Aaron's card too. It's not a new set, but I'm seeing it with fresh eyes at the moment.

I've been hanging out for the end of the week (my working week anyway) because I am so exhausted from moving offices at work. We do begin our school holidays in Victoria this Friday too, but at some stage over the holidays, our team will need to go in to work to finish off - after the moving men have tackled the heavy cupboards and filing cabinets. Us 'girls' handled the moving of four desks on a trolley, assisted by my dear hubby.Plus there was a myriad of smaller items to lug across the whole school, so it was probably more exercise for me than I'm used to!!!
