Birthday Card for Michael And Some Party Pictures

Hi everyone. I’m here with another card, one I made for my little brother Michael who turned 1 year on the 29th of January.

I sometimes struggle to make masculine cards, since I can’t find much boy embellishments and I don’t work easily with buttons.
But I liked this card a lot!!

I have used an old stamp I have forgotten about.
And used it for this card.

I stuck a 1,2,3 on pop-ups in the middle of the card.

I wrote “Gelukkige 1ste Verjaardag Michael!” in Afrikaans, which means Happy 1st Birthday Michael.
I would also like to take part in the following challenges:
Aly's Sunday Challenge  - For the guys
Let's Ink It Up - Anything Goes
Crafty Emma - Bold & Bright
Alphabet Challenge  - "M" is for men
Polkadoodle -  party time
Totally Papercrafts - for the kiddies
AiFactory  - for the boys

He had a Pirate party and here are some pictures:

On the morning of his birthday, opening his presents.

He got balls, a big one a three little ones.
Look at his little face!

He also got two hard cover books.

We made little treasure boxes, and put sweets inside including chocolate money!
We decorated the boxes with gold sprayed noodles.
And here is the cake..................

We made a Pirate boat!

From the back.

From the side 

And CJ’s (my eldest brother) anchor!

The party table

All the Pirates! 
(Michael didn’t want to wear his pirate dress-up stuff!)

Check out CJ and Josua’s faces!
They drew the mustache with a black pen.

Even Andrew and David had their pirate faces on!

Daniel only whore his bandana.

And some of the girls where dressed as princesses!

Blowing the candle!

I hope you liked the pictures and my card!

Have a blessed day

  1. Your card is fabulous!!! I agree that cards for males are much harder to make. But you did a terrific job on this one.

    Michael is adorable in his birthday pictures. I so enjoy seeing the nice things that your family does together. It looks like everyone had fun.

    The cake was a work of art! It looks so yummy, but yet too awesome to eat. :) I love the little treasure chest boxes. They turned out really well.
