Happy weekend to you all whatever you are up to.
I had a couple of commissioned cards to make for a little boy who loves his Lego so I set about making my own set of Lego bricks...
I cut the blocks from bright cardstock and set about punching out the circles with a small Xcut punch.
A long time later, lol, I had them all edged with matching distress marker and foam pads on the back ready to make in to the blocks. After they were fixed on to the card I highlighted the shine on the blocks with a white gel pen. It turned out quite realistic I think.
(Top Tip Tuesday Challenge Tip) :Then I had the idea of making another card which I could sell at an upcoming event without knowing the age and cut out some black numbers, mounted them on foam pads and popped them onto some leftover backing sheet of an old foam pad packet. Now this card can be suitable for either a '4', '5', '6', '7', '8' or '9' year old. The customer can easily add the correct age for the Birthday boy when the time comes.

Enjoy your weekend! September starts on Monday, I can barely believe it. I had better get stuck in to making some more Christmas cards, my box is not nearly full enough yet.
See you soon,
