My son's birthday today

This is the first time ever I've not seen him on his birthday & he's 36 today, can't believe it.
I'm thinking as he can't see it I might just put a baby pic up, so off to find something cute.
This was taken at 18months, he always love having his photo taken, not now though, have to pin him down or he makes funny faces. There's a later one on my sidebar.
Happy Birthday Christopher
love Mum xx

New Baby Card

What a quandry with this one, I inked up my new Magnolia baby & then thought maybe not a good idea as she has angel wings & new baby early, the other was mother & baby WOJ & she can't carry her around yet, if your following my train of thought , just a wee bit superstitious, so went for my old faithfull PB & kept it simple.

Ive used PB Baby Hammock, coloured with promarkers
Pink Bazzil cardstock
DP Bo Bunny & craft creations
Marianne & spellbinders die
Sizzix alphabet & Stampin up oval punch
flowers from craft box.

Going to see her today so will hopefully get a better photo.
Many thanks for any comments,

This is another last minute card, when will I ever be able to find time to relax & enjoy,
I'm away all day tomorrow & wanted to get at least one challenge card done.

This is for PBSC
I've used PB Lazy Days, coloured with promarkers
DP I think is Basic Grey
Spellbinders dies
Judith sentiment which I never get enough opportunities to use, this is me, but unfortunately I have to do them,
Charms are from the works

This may have to be my son's birthday card,  as I'm all out of inspiration at the moment.
He does have two allotments ( which we share) so the gardening theme is appropriate.
He's away tomorrow till Monday so I may come up with something else. Birthday Saturday so he won't open it anyway till he gets back.
He's off to London it's his cousins birthday today & a friends tomorrow so they're having a lads weekend.
It's also my SIL's today so Happy Birthday if you see this, as I said before our family seems to prefer the last week in February to be born.
The new wee one seems to be doing ok at the moment.
Many thanks for any comments, Please check out myTim Holtz blog candy & remember to wear red tomorrow.

Baby Arrived Early

My niece had her baby at 1. 19 am, 3lbs 12 oz, Ruby Angela, she just missed my late mothers birthday, she has arrived a few weeks early but seems to be doing well.
I'll add the photo as soon as I figure out how to get it off my phone.
I've been knitting for her but will need to go find a prem baby pattern as it's going to be a while before the other things fit

Another Need it for Tomorrow card

My son's boss asked for an anniversary card today, I never do orders as it stresses me out, I usually just give them away, but on a mission to raise £50 for BHF & have cleared out my box & in one day got £41.50, so really pleased.. see my blog candy for reason.
Anyhow most of them were bought by ladies in my son's office so couldn't really say no, I hope it's OK for her, it's for a diamond wedding. I had to do it today as he's off on holiday on Thursday & away for his birthday on Saturday  ( first time ever I'll not see him on his birthday) & I was going to do his birthday card today.
It's looking like I'll need to do a baby card tomorrow, my niece went into labour today 6weeks early, this was my mum's birthday too, so far no news.
February is a very popular month in our family & 5 all in the same week.
Hi Dianne if your reading this, enjoy yours on Friday.
Oh nearly forgot I was posting a card,
I've used a very nice pearlescent hammered card, my last sheet.
A metallic/ pearlescent card

On the Edge..

This is a quick & simple card maine reason being I have a raging sore throat just now & my son needed a card to post tomorrow, as it has to go to Switzerland I've kept it free from embellishments & used my new Tim Holtz die, I got one for me & one for my blog candy (have a look on my sidebar).
Thanks to Sam for the inspiration for it, I think the edging just gives it something special.
I have also used my new PB Birthday Balloons, coloured with promarkers.
The card I got at a craft show about 3years ago
Many thanks for any comments
