My Grandson

Good morning from a dry and slightly sunny Edinburgh, no cards from me this week, been very busy with my gorgeous grandson, for those of you who remember, all these years ago when he was first born..well he is now a big 4 yrs was his birthday yesterday, and oh my how time flies, he is such a joy to be around, yeah I'm biased but he truly is..we had him up to our football on sunday and quite a few people remarked not just how gorgeous he was but how well spoken he is...Iam so proud of him...but the poor wee mite took ill on monday so his birthday celebrations were too much for him daughter is taking him to the docs today..he is having a garden party on saturday with some of his friends from nursery, so I hope he is much better by then....thanks for listening to me rambling on but I'm a very proud granny...hope to get some cards done by the end of the week.....take care...Lorsxx

1st Birthday

Good morning,
I have just finished work, so while I'm waiting for the painkiller's to kick in I thought I'd post my latest card...I was asked by a friend to make this card for her nephew....I do enjoy making these type of cards, I always imagine their little faces lighting up when they open them...I used a square card blank, added some blue plain paper, then used the matching stripey paper for along the bottom..the image was a download I bought a while ago, not quite sure where from though...added a corner die cut from my stash as well as buttons and bow...the sentiment was from a craftwork card goody bag....I'm off to browse some blogs now....

Hello and a very early good morning to you all, I was asked to make this card for a friend, I simply used a square card blank, paper from craftwork cards goody bag, marianne corner die, ribbon from stash, photo from my computer and flowers with black pearls, However before the card was handed over I added a memory box die to it, just behind the pic....I love using the marianne die, I personally think it really helps to make stunning cards....Iam entering this card into the following challenges;
