First Birthdays all around.....

Some of you will already know that our gorgeous first grandson celebrated his 1st birthday on 3rd May so we had a lovely wee party in our house for him - their flat is just a tad too wee for too many visitors.  Just take a look at Kai .....mucky but happy after his party! It was lovely to have my Mam (Kai and Stanley's greatgranny) and my brother down to help us have fun.

His wee friend Ava celebrates her 1st birthday next week so I have made a card for Lynne to give to her on her special day.

Using the ever so cute Martha from Digistamp Boutique, I used my Prisma pencils to colour the image; backing paper was freebie in Simply Cards and Papercraft some time ago; Cricut cut 'Ava' and '1 today' and distressed with Tattered Rose TH Distress Ink; added ribbon and gems.
Hope you like......

I will enter this into Digistamp Boutique May competition to see if I have any luck winning some new images to inspire me.

I haven't the energy to look for more challenges tonight as I have  a very sore throat - saw a pharmacist in a national store ( similar to shoes ha ha) and he was most unhelpful - I am on quite a lot of other meds for HBP and my stomach problems and they are supposed to ask who the medicine is for and are they on other meds - well he didn't even ask who it was for but luckily Lynne is up on her meds and was able to advice me what I could take to ease the pain.  Think I need to see GP as been hanging around for nearly three weeks now :(

Many thanks for looking and happy crafting guys!
