Happy Henry

As you know I am on holiday at the moment so this post is scheduled so that you won't get bored while I'm away.
I made this wall plaque for my DT project for over on the Die cut Dreams challenge blog where this week Vikki choose the theme "Male" Theme this week and you still have until Sunday at noon to get on over there and enter.
Also over at Corrosive challenge the theme is Kids Birthday and I thought this would be perfect for my youngest son Woody's birthday which is coming up soon.
And at Simon says challenge the theme this week is Stitching, while at Stamptacular sunday challenge this week they want "Anything but a card".
The DP I used to die cut the cupcake is from BG Wisteria pad I also used the same papers to punch the flowers before distressing them.
The stamp I have used is "Celebrating Henry"one I have been waiting to come back into stock for sometime over at the Whiff of Joy site and when I was over there ordering my Christmas Henry stamps last week I was over the moon to find it was back in stock......and even more over the moon when all my new WoJ stamps flew thought my letter box on Saturday morning before I went on holiday, oh you have got to get the Christmas Henry mouse ones they are just so lovely.

I have distressed the edge of the circle with Tim Holtz inks then I stitched the edges with my sewing machine. I also used the distress inks to colour the Henry image it was a nice change from using my copics & promarkers.
And the sentiment stamp is from SU.
