Ryan's card

I just had to do something this afternoon to take my mind off my pain! I am sure I must have kidney stones again by the way it feels!! Hope not though!

My little grandson is having his second birthday soon so a good opportunity to make a card using my new All In the Family SU set! Ryan is crazy on anything with wheels so had to have a tractor there LOL.

I didn't go to too much trouble with his card as I know he will be way more interested in the real things he is getting - I have a little port for him with Thomas the Tank Engine on it for his overnighters!!

This is a stand up card which can be folded flat for posting - such a great idea and so simple to make. Again I used my trusty Scor-Pal which can be ordered here to make the score lines perfectly. Everything lined up so easily so it is a great invention.

All supplies from Stampin' Up! except for the tractor which came from Lucys Stamps and the balloons are punched from a Carl punch.

Card: Brilliant Blue, Real Red, Green Galore and Tempting Turquoise

Ink: Watercolour Crayons, black journaler pen, markers

Stamps: All In The Family, It's Your Birthday and a retired stamp from the set Perfect Plaids

Stampin' Around Wheel - Hot to Dot
