Hi All ...... I'm here again with another card that i made for my grand-son Drew's 3rd birthday .  Where does time to ?? !!! ..It just seems like yesterday that he was born !  As you get older you may slow down but time speeds up at a terrific rate , it feels as if all i've done is blink my eyes and 50 yrs have shot past !! I find it frightening ... but we cant stop the hands of 'old father time ' can we ??!!

I used a white card for the base , and then layered it first with navy card and then pale blue .  Around the pale blue layered i added a dark blue ribbon .  I then edged the card in silver zig zag peel offs .

 I used another digital stamp , this time i used one from 'Mo's Digital Pencil Shop ' called 'Taking a Break' .... there are some beautiful stamps on here and i shall be going back for more !   I picked this as Drew's mum , my daughter Ruth , bought a Great Dane around this time last year ... he's called Milo and is as draft and a brush !! ..Well Drew and Milo are like best buddies , they follow each other around , Drew will quite often fall asleep on Milo ...... so when i saw this i just had to use it ...   I used 'Cosmic Shimmer Paints ' again and added a bit of Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Glue in places ....added some flowers , not to much as he is a boy so u cant go to OTT with a boy's card .  Down in the corner i used some other peel-offs ..the outline of box's of presents i coloured these in with Glitter Pens ...added some peel off stars and a couple of other things and Bobs your Uncle all done ... This is the first time i've done a Easel Card so i am very pleased with the result .

This is Milo  ....
What a big boy he his !!! ...My son is 6 ft 4 in so you can see the height !!                  

Well thats all from me today ... hope life is treating you kind ...take care and hugs to you all xxxxxx
