Happy Birthday Dec

Hello everyone. It's sunny...yay...and warm too...double yay!!! My cherry tree is bursting with blossom, the grass is growing like billyo (and what a bummer...my lawnmower is in hospital!!) but so are the weeds!! Doesn't it make you feel better though to see a bit of sunshine, I know I certainly do.

Anyway, it has been a week since my last visit so I thought I would share the card I made for Declan who enjoyed a Birthday earlier in the month.


He is too old for Thomas the Tank Engine these days (although I am reliably informed that his cake resembled aforesaid engine!!) so good old DSB came to the rescue with Harry and Beer. Coloured with Promarkers and matted on to a Lovely Studio digital paper. I found a Son stamp in my stash, it was a free one, I think and the Happy Birthday is from Clearly Besotted.


I will leave you with a picture of  Declan and Mollie, taken in the snow last month!!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend xx

Fab card for your son! The photo of him and his daughter is lovely although I'm not sure Mollie is impressed with the snow :D.
My hubby bought our youngest, who was going to be 25, a Peter Rabbit card with you are 2 on it and said you can change this can't you? So I had to die cut a 5 in a similar blue to the 2 add dashes of colour and glitter to match then I realised it said two further down so I had to cover that then blow me there was a tiny 2 on a flag inside so had to write a very tiny 5 next to it. It would actually been easier if I had made him a card! These men!! Debra x
