I hope you had a lovely Valentine’s Day.
We celebrated Alexa’s 4th birthday with an apple themed party in the morning, a relaxing afternoon (including a nap for this tired Mumma!) and then a tapas and cards date night for me & Mr Papercraft.
As it turns out, Mr P & I weren’t the only ones celebrating Valentine’s Day in our house. Alexa was surprised with a truly gorgeous bunch of flowers from her bestie, Cooper. Young love!
The photo inspiration from Just Add Ink this week gave me the perfect opportunity to make a card for Alexa to give Coops in return.
What does polka Dots, pink hearts & ‘coffee’ for kids in love translate to? Babychinos & marshmallows!
The coffee cups are from the Perfect Blend stamp set. For this card, I used the digital download rather than the actual stamp, which allowed me to resize the cups to create two babychino size versions that fit beautifully on the card front.
If you’re the parent of a youngster, chances are you’ve been for babychinos. If not – you’re missing out on a tiny cup filled with warm, frothy milk and sprinkled with chocolate, with marshmallows on the side. They didn’t have babychinos when I was little! Today’s kids are totally spoilt!!!
By using MDS, I was also able to create a custom sentiment – “we go together like babychinos & marshmallows” – in my favourite fonts.
Thanks to Coops & his mum for making Alexa feel like the most special girl in the playground! Kelly x
