Sketches in Thyme #69 'Birthday Boy'


SiT have got a super sketch this week, really simple so you can keep it 'clean' or embellish away!

My take is of my SIL on his 29th birthday. He doesn't normally make a big deal of his birthday but now that he is part of our family he will have to get used to a fuss being made WE LOVE BIRTHDAYS!!!

White cardstock has been misted with blue and green chalk mist. I cut the number 2 and 9 borders on the cricut to use as a stencil and then cut another 2 border in Teresa Collins acetate. The white card was punched with a Martha Stewart Cane Edge Punch and matted onto black card.

Chipboard numbers painted with Jenny Bowlin Cough Candy, Basic Grey rub on, Tim Holtz holder , October Afternoon sticker, metal letter from stash, chipboard star Teresa Collins

a closer look of the misted borders

Stars cut using the Cricut and Coredinations Black Magic. Some embossed with Sizzix star folder and some sanded.
Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day :0)
