Make a Wish

Hello sweet friends ...
How are you?
I am on the mend ... I was able to cook our Christmas dinner and it was such a lovely day ... 
I am taking things easy as I know I am not back to full health yet ... This is the second bout of flu I've had in as many months ... But it seems that in 2013 I qualify for the flu jab ... so here's hoping I wont catch it again for a while ...

Tomorrow is a special day ... my beautiful son reaches 30 ... I can hardly believe it ... seems only yesterday he was a little boy ..  full of life and constantly on the go ... I've watched him change from a blond little bundle of energy ... to a tall dark handsome young man and every memory is etched on my heart ... 
This is the card I made for him....


I stamped a Happy Birthday sentiment in Versamark and embossed it using clear embossing powder onto black paper ... backed it with paper from PaperMania ...


I rolled some little candles with some scrap paper and added string for the wicks ... The sentiment is computer generated and the bow I cut by hand ... 


You know he loves his cats ... Gipsy and our new addition Ginger ... so I had to add these little guys to the inside


The weather here is so very dull and drab ... miserable is probably the right word ... I am so looking forward to Spring ...

Have yourselves a wonderful day ... Thanks so much for all your lovely comments

Till soon

~ Ros ~

Happy Birthday to your son. He is going to love it. I am glad to hear you are on the mends. Take care my friend.

What a great card for your son....He'll love it. I know exactly how you feel, as my son turned 30 last year....where did all the years go? Did you know that you can get flu-jabs at any Pharmacy for £10, worth every penny. My lad is a Pharmacist, so he did mine this year ;-)
Hope you have a fab day celebrating, when you're feeling 100% xx
