For Caleb...

I made this card for one of my dearest friends' son, Caleb, who turned five this past November.  I always struggle to make masculine and kids cards but I am pretty happy with how this one turned out.

I used Stampendous "Hot Botz" to build the robot.  The set is really versatile... all the parts ore separate so you can pick and choose how you want your robot to look.  The sentiment was from another set (sorry but I don't remember which one).   It was also used on the inside of the card which says "Happy Beep Beep Birthday". The only thing I wish I would have changed is to use silver paper and a diamond plate embossing folder for the white layer...

I hope to get back to doing more blogging soon... I am finally getting somewhat healthy again and am now just trying to get my house cleaned after being sick for almost two months.
