Larry Boy Birthday card (plus cake and party stufff)

Yesterday was my littlest dude's 4th birthday party, and he wanted it to be a Larry Boy theme... which basically meant I had to do it all from scratch, because Larry Boy party stuff doesn't exist. I'll show you the card first since that's what this blog is about, but I'll share everything else I made too :)

Now, before I show you the card, I have to confess, this is the first time I've CASEd (Copy And Share Everything). I didn't case the whole card, but I knew to make LarryBoy, I'd have to piece him together, and not only is Punch Art NOT my forte, but I also don't have a lot of the more simple punches to work with yet. So I googled and found ONE card with a Punch Art Larry Boy, and I used the example to both punch and freehand my own version, so I didn't have to spend hours trying to design my own. I also gave him a shadow, which I thought would be funny if it looked like a pickle ;)

I also made a VERY simple banner (I was just a wee bit time crunched this week, and the party was pretty last minute), a goody bag with caramel apples, decorated as the Bad Apple, and a cake, with Larry Boy made out of Skittles...

Anyways, now that things have calmed down, (and I have lots of new Stampin' Up! stuff heading my way), expect to see more posting of my own cards and stuff again... hopefully our transition to our new, Grade 1, full-day, early morning schedule doesn't disrupt my life too much ;)
