Happy Birthday Andrew

At long last the sun has come out and just in time for an afternoon BBQ for our grandson's 1st Birthday. I can't believe how fast the past year has flown by, he's such a joy. The photo below is at his christening 2 weeks ago with our daughter (his Mummy). The romper suit that he is wearing is the one that our son wore at his christening 29 years ago, I'm so glad that it fitted him.

As well as yesterday's card which FIL gave to him I also made our own and the one my son gave to him too. It's hard sometimes when you have to make cards for the same person but from different senders. For ours I used Crafter's Companion's Adoreables CD for the backing paper and the scene and then a couple of stamps from Jayne Nesterenko, which were coloured with promarkers.

The bottom card is from his Uncle and was made again using Crafter's Companion, Bebunni CD.
The topper has been decoupaged and matched to one of the backing papers. I then used the Scan n cut for the wording on the top card and the Cricut explore for the bottom one.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Hi Sue, Your grandson is adorable! What a happy and healthy looking little guy. Your next two cards for him are also beautiful, yes it must be difficult to make 3 for the same child. Take care Shirleyxx
