Who else feels like they need anything but Christmas!

Hi all

I'm running late today a combination of, birthdays, holidays  and life in general!

so perhaps the theme of our challenge this week at 

Fab'n'Funky Challenges 

 fits very well

Chosen by our lovely Helen our theme is indeed

Anything but Christmas!

it's my grandson Jacob's 6th birthday today and we all went out for family tea. at a local  independent Italian restaurant.  I find the Italian restaurants are really accommodating to kids, they are so welcoming and nothing is too much bother  - very family orientated,  they brought him ice cream with a candle and he was thrilled to bits that the whole restaurant sang happy birthday to him. We had a lovely time and we were home by 7 o'clock - well it is a school night!

here is the card I made for him using a cute image from our sponsor this week
perfect for a little boy's birthday

Frame it - balloon boy - available here

Our sponsor this week is the fabulous 

if ever I.m stuck for a fun image to colour I know I'll always find one there

Here's Jacob looking very handsome and  pleased with himself with his birthday ice cream
how did he get to be six already- I have no idea!

This is what I did....
