Mixels join FMS 170 & Seize the Birthday

How much fun to create a birthday card for Isaac ~ I can't believe our little man will be six next week ~ This is Isaac on the roof top of the condo that we are currently living in ~ the view in the background  is the beautiful French Quarters and The Forks Market in our city ~ we love our new neighbourhood and have embraced our new life style ~ our new condo is down the road about four blocks closer to this beautiful view!

Here we are with our seven!!! So much love to share with these wonderful children ~ Six boys ~ One girl

I followed this wonderful sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #170 and since this is a birthday card, it also works with the challenge from Seize The Birthday ~ join in the fun...there is still time to play

Isaac loves the Mixels...a silly fun toy made by Lego..and so, you may not understand this card, but Isaac will be head over heels with his card...and...his gifts....shhhh!!!! Not a word, promise :-)

If you live in Winnipeg or the vicinity and would like to host a party I would love to come and stamp with you and your friends!! Or, if space is an issue, come here and create with me at one of my many clubs or classes! Drop me a line for further info! I'd love to meet you! Enjoy your day! Please pop in on'll find a link to some knitting that I've created. Drop me a line if you have any questions!


  1. Sweet card Denise. I like that background. Isaac will love it. 6 yrs already?! Wow - such a sweetheart.

  2. Isn't this just the best part of cardmaking - making a card that will mean a lot to the recipient!! The creature is charming and I love the fun backdrop. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  3. This is the perfect personalised card! I'd never heard of Mixels as my boys have grown up and moved away from Lego, but I can imagine how fun it must be from the adorable image! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  4. Your card is awesome and love that it is something personal that your Grandson will love! I must say that the photo of you and your grandkids warms my heart. How blessed you are with such a beautiful group of children. You can see the love in this photo! Thanks for sharing your card and a bit of your life with us. So glad you joined us at Seize the Birthday Denise!

  5. So cute. Love your design. i bet Isaac will love it too. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Seize the Birthday.
