Birthday Boy

Hello and good morning!

I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas and Santa brought you lots of goodies... The severe weather in Texas and the floods in the UK caused a lot of grief I know, and my heart goes out to all who have suffered...

I still have a few Christmas cards to share but today is a special day ... It's Mike's  birthday, my son is 33 years old today - I can hardly believe it!
This is the card I made for him


I used some Christmas stamps to make this ... They were in the sale and I ordered them ages ago but they didn't arrive in time for Christmas 


Still, I think these little guys are fine for a winter birthday and I had to add the black cat because our black cat Gypsy adores Mike


I used the Gansai Tambi paints for my BG ... They really are lovely to use - even for a non artist like me and the music strip was cut on my Cameo

We had a really quiet Christmas and I relaxed a lot over the past few days so It's taken me awhile to get back into card making and blogging...

Wishing you all a lovely day... Take care

Beautiful birthday card, Ros, and Happy Birthday to your son! My son, Andrew, will be 33 on the 1st! We were pregnant at the same time!!! The house was full for the past week...just now catching up. Some leaving today, one more leaving tomorrow! It was nice, but will be nice to have my house back! Enjoy your Tuesday!

Absolutely gorgeous winter BD card, Ros--bet your son loves it! I was just given that cute stamp set & you've inspired me to use it! Probably should have bought the Gambi instead of the Zig markers or maybe I just need more practice--haha! Wishing you & your family a wonderful 2016--Big hugs, Greta

Love the colors - and the cute birds! He must have loved it! As for the music strip from you Cameo... I'm now a proud owner of a Cameo as well but I still have to figure out how to use it!!

That stamp set is so cute. I think it's sold out almost everywhere. Our Christmas was very quiet too. Happy birthday to your Mike! Hugs!

Great card - fabulous background and love the combination of elements you have used, I can almost see the cat's tail twitching as it contemplates whether to pounce for those birdies. How do our sons manage to grow up so quickly, where does the time go?
