I'm running late today a combination of, birthdays, holidays and life in general!
so perhaps the theme of our challenge this week at
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....
