Robot Birthday Card

Happy Monday!  Can you tell it's not a typical Monday over here?  It's a long weekend Monday!  Ater a super fun weekend in the sun we stayed home today and enjoyed a home day!  I've been able to get quite creative!  Not something I've done during the day in forever with summer and busy kids, I usually craft at night!  With hubby home it's been easy to craft!  And do laundry!  Yesterday the kids and I went to the beach with my parents.  We went to a pretty far beach an hour drive but so worth it, Grand Beach has been voted as one of the top 10 beaches in the world, it's the white sand!  Super hot what a day for the beach!  Chad stayed home as he had enough of the sun the day before.  It was nice to come home from the beach to a clean house!  YAY!

I've decided to challenge myself to play with new stamps and other crafty things that I haven't even taken out of the package yet!  And when I saw that part of this month's Hero Arts contest is cards for kids I knew I wanted to play with my Robot Trio set.  I can't believe I haven't yet!  I also want to try to use more patterned paper, as I keep buying them and not really using them!  I love My Mind's Eye Lime Twist pack but have hardly used it, and I think of it as a summery set! 

I colored the robot with pencils and added some glossy accents on the balloon and stickles on the cupcake!  I stamped the robot first and than masked it with a post it note and than stamped it with the graph background by HA.  By the way whenever I type the word Robot, I am always typing roboto!  I wonder what 80's song is in my head? 

Apparently today (August 1st) is National girlfriends day!  I didn't know it before when I planned it but tonight I went out with a bunch of my girlfriends.  We went out for some Thai and it was sooooo good!  I think Thai is my new favorite cuisine!  The flavor!  We shared a bunch of dishes so it was the best experience, so much yummy food!  Than we went out to the best gelati place in the city and I had chcolatorra (really good) and pinapple!  As good as the food was the conversation and being with my friends really was the best part!

All in all this long weekend really was a great long weekend.  I am glad we stayed in the city and had fun!  An I am off.  Chad and I have been watching the Mentalist and really enjoying catching up with that show!  :>

I can't believe you never used the robot stamps... and with Carter! :P The robot looks so happy with his first inking and I love pairing that sentiment with it. Here's to many more super robot cards!
