I am super duper late for this Teaparty but there is no way I would miss it. The teaparty a couple weeks ago was for Tyler - a little boy facing hard hard battles. He loves strawberry milkshakes. I know this card looks nothing like a card made for a little boy but it took on a life of its own. I am going to include some little boy stuff in the package like a potato gun and some toy bugs. So I will hopefully redeem myself.
My punched/die cut border on the bottom came straight from the desk of Bobbiesgirl (she did an incrediably fun thing and sent me some fun odds and ends from her crafting space - thanks Carol!!!). She makes some super delish stuff and you should check out her gallery:
