Birthday Card

I hope you are all having a lovely evening, isn't it good that it is Friday. I have had such a busy week that I haven't even had a chance to do any crafting. I thought as kids grew up it would get easier but instead of having more time I seem to have less . Oh well, I won't have many more years to do it so I will make the most of it now while he does still need me to run him around everywhere. I can't believe how grown up he seems to be getting.

Tonight I finally found some time to get a birthday card done for our little Grandson who celebrates his 1st Birthday next week. I had to get it done tonight as I need to get it posted soon otherwise it will not arrive in time, especially if the strikes go ahead.

I have used papers from Nana's Nursery collection by DCWV, and yellow cardstock from my stash. I welded Oscar's name to the 1 using a friends Basecamp Cricut cartridge (thanks Sue). The beautiful image I have used can be found on Sheet 43 over here at Cute Daisy May which I have coloured with my Promarkers. Hope you like it.

Thank you for visiting and have a great weekend.

PS. I have also been playing around in Photoshop to try and show my cards off a bit better with a personalised signature.


  1. Hi Max, Thanks for all your lovely comments. I am shocked!!!. I can't believe your a Grandma. You don't look old enough. The card is lovely. I sure his mum and dad will keep all his cards so that he can look at them when he is older.
    I have been trying to find a way of putting my signature on my pics too. Come across some sites so will give it a go. Sorry about your boiler!!
    Love Sarah XXX
