Happy Birthday Freddie!!

It's my nephew's birthday today.....well actually Freddie is my Gt Nephew but I don't mention that too often as it makes me feel old!! Anyway when I had my new papers/card out from My Mind's Eye, I thought they would be ideal for this card. I have also made an effort to start using all the uninked stamps I have and these are two of them. I seem to have so many I have bought and never used that I thought it was about time I stopped buying anymore and started using them!



Both images are Magnolia, which has been coloured using a mixture of Prismas, Sansodor and Marvy, and the sentiment is Autumn Leaves (I think!). DP is My Mind's Eye and c.s. is Bazzill. Used my SU slot punch to make the holes for the ribbon which was from my stash. Finally, added a little Glamour Dust to his wings and to the leaves on the branch.

This card was relatively quick and simple.....I say relatively as the longest part was cutting out the swing....very fiddly!!

Have just found out that another of my Nieces is expecting a girl!! She's already got three boys and we haven't had a baby girl in the family for nine years!! I can't wait to buy all those pretty pink and frilly clothes!!

Hope you're all having a good weekend.....off to Asda now for the shopping. I drove right past yesterday as the queues to get into the car park were horrendous but I've got no choice today as the cupboards are bare and I've got to get some food for our dinner today....Tony is cooking us a roast dinner and his gravy is to die for...yummy!! It's nice to have a cook back in the house!
