My little baby is 10

This was a bit of a last-minute card as we were away just before Tom's birthday but I think it's come out quite well - it's loosely based on the brilliant Helen's 9 squarre cards.  Everything football related is strictly 'blue&white' in my son;s eyes so I cut 1 inch scallopped squares in white and 1.25" in blue on my cricut (storybook cartridge).  The puffy stickers were from accessorize.  Ribbon from stash.  Sentiment hand-written.

Yum yum yum  and yes, it did taste as good as it looks!

More bunting

I'm persevering with my attempt to give a homemade gift for everyones birthday this year and have only slipped once so far (but I haven't forgotten that project - they will get it eventually!)

My latest effort was for darling Kitty who is now 2.

The colours hopefully match her bedroom - altho that is based from memory - fingers crossed everyone!

The lettering and animals are cut on my cricut using the zooballoo cartridge.  I couldn't quite decide what to do to the background of the paper but plumped for stamping in the end - mainly because I wasn't convinced that anyone would recognise the 'Y' as a 'Yak'. ;-)

The stars in each corner were a compromise solution as my stoopid crop-a-dile refuses to set eyelets.  I figured they would be less likely to tear over the holes if the sticker was there as a reinforcer and stars were all I had in (very) roughly the right colour.

Kitty's Mum has texted today to say it will go beautifully and she is planning to laminate each pennant so it lasts "forever".
