Big Boy Birthday....

Well last week my eldest son took another step towards being a teenager. Despite his age he is still quite young, that's the good thing about Tas, kids can enjoy being kids for longer than in many other places.

Of course his birthday list was totally unrealistic but I think he was happy in the end! The hardest cards I have to make are for family and close friends, I think it is because the expectation is too high and I crumble under the pressure. I am sad to admit that all the boys have cards from me missing for their birthdays - outrageous eh?!

Anyway, this year I did make him a card and as usual I am not very happy with it but he loves it. I didn't make it too grown up as he still likes little fluffy animals and all things cute!

I love the new Build-a-Roo set in our catalogue - very cute, there are all sorts of things you can put in her pouch and I am guessing any of the Loads of Love accessories will do just as well with her as well!

This card is C5 size (A4 folded in half!)

Stamps:Build a Roo, Jumbo Outline Alphabet
Card Stock: Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Summer Sun
