Wall-E Punch Art

So it's Toby's 5th birthday tomorrow. Here's the card I made for him very surreptitiously last night. Cardstock colours used are Creamy Caramel, More Mustard, Going Gray, Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White. Ink is Close to Cocoa, Chocolate chip, Certainly Celery and Green Galore. Punches I've used are Word Window, Small Oval, 1 & 3/8" Square (or bottom of the Tag as the box is a little shortened), Star (to notch the small oval for Wall-E's eyes), Spiral and Wide Oval. I've used a regular hole-punch or the retired 1/8" circle punch for the eyes. I've also crimped a piece of Going Gray before punching. Can you guess which stamp I used to create Eve's little plant? Post your answer in the comment section!

Failing eyesight...

So its started... I've now procured reading glasses. Hoping they don't make me look too much like my Mum, and REALLY hoping I don't look like my brother!

Of course, Caitlyn needed to be in on the whole photo thing. After I stopped her from doing rabbit ears behind me, it was not too bad. She's poised in mid kiss in this one.
So, what do you think? More distinguished?? ;)
