Happy Birthday Lucas

It's Lucas who is the birthday boy today and he is four. I asked him what cake he wanted and he said Luigi's head. So I searched the Internet and settle for a cake which looked very easy to do. Then when I asked him again he said a ghost then shortly after a star. To double check what he wanted I asked him again on Wednesday 'what cake would you like', a star nanny he said. So here it is:

I tried to included some characters from Super Mario - Luigi being his favourite. I'm hoping he likes it.

Running Up That Hill

No card tonight, I've been busy making some books and trying to sort out some card orders instead. So what did you think of the closing ceremony of the Olympics - I thought it was great and how brilliant it was that they featured a song from Kate Bush. I am a big fan of hers so I thought I would post of that tune!

The Book Birdhouse

I've been wanting to make one of these for ages but couldn't find out how but finally last night after much searching I found it! Like the Book Christmas Trees these are too made from old books. I've punched a brown circle to give the impression of the opening to the birdhouse and stamped a little bird coloured with Promarkers. I've slightly coloured the roof in brown ink then use sparkle Mod Podge.On the roof I've punched out two MS butterfly and layered up and added gems for the body. I've threaded some ribbon through the middle and secured with an eyelet and a knot at the bottom and left a loop for the top with a little bead threaded through.
