Birthday Boy

Hello there... 
How are you, did you enjoy your Christmas?

We had a lovely Christmas day, having spent days visiting friends and family, dropping off gifts etc., It was lovely to just enjoy the peace and quiet of home with my husband, son and kitties.
Unfortunately Mikey was and still is suffering from a heavy cold but he managed to eat a little dinner and then went off to bed.
The cats have been enjoying the under rug heater I bought and have slept most of the time sprawled out on the rug... Peace is bliss!

DH went off to the match yesterday so I made a couple of birthday cards...Mikey celebrates his birthday on the 29th of this month and my friends' daughter on the 31st.
Today I'm sharing Mikey's card with you

 When my friend Stella came over from the Netherlands this year, she brought me some Watercolour Confection paints and they are gorgeous! I used them for this card along with some Art Deco gold acrylic paint

The colours in the palette are so rich and this is painted on ordinary cardstock. I also did a little foiling for the letters and the stars - Just using double sided tape as I don't have a machine.

I can't believe where the years have gone and how quickly my little boy suddenly became a man. When he was little I would come home from work to letters he'd written me telling me how much he loved me and how thankful he was for all I did... Often they would be illustrated with "He Man" or one of the Ninja Turtles Lol! I still have everyone - I'm so blessed to have him.

Have a lovely day my friends
