Popcorn Fun


This is a birthday card for my eldest Son, his birthday is not until the end of September, but I expect that to be a busy month and want to get it ready. Especially after the good news today that having achieved 3 A's at A level, he will be going to Uni just as he planned. So it may even be the first Birthday he celebrates away from home !
He loves popcorn and when we used to go to the cinema he would scoff a huge box of it all to himself ! These little guys seem to be having a great time outdoors with their pot of corn!
This is a House Mouse stamp, coloured with promarkers and mounted onto popcorn paper (in my stash for years !) and the other papers from Prima 'My Little Guy'. The twine is from Tim Holtz, popcorn die cuts (Quickutz), robins nest dew drops and sentiments all from Whimsy.

The sketch for this card is from Sketch N Stash.
I will enter this card into challenges at;
