Robot Birthday

I do believe Spring has arrived. Most of snow is gone except in the woods-even the huge pile that was in our front yard. I need to get my hummingbird and oriole feeders out today.

I recently attended a weekend craft retreat and my goal was to work on cards for Operation Write Home. This is one of the cards I made. I will enter it in the following challenges: Cute Card Thursday #371 - Use a sentiment; Operation Write Home-Our Daily Bread May challenge - Embossing; Addicted to Stamps - #142 Make Your Mark (color image); Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes; and Cheery Lynn #182- Anything Goes.


I love this Robot image from Close to My Heart set 'Robot Family'. He is so cute! Makes a great kids birthday card. He is stamped on Gina K Pure Luxury White cardstock with Momento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic Markers. I cut him out with Spellbinders Deckled Long Rectangles, as is the mat. The gears are from Cheery Lynn and cut out of some funky paper my friend gave me-it's sort of thick and very textured. Make great gears. The background mat is embossed with Sizzix Tim Holtz Riveted Metal embossing folder. Words are from Tattered Lace 'Everyday Words' dies. I attached the gears with red brads (probably from Michael's).

  6. Your robot is quite the charmer with that cute little smile; he'd definitely bring a smile to my nephew's face. The gears along the side are such a sweet added touch. Thank you for sharing your creativity in the ATSM gallery!
