well another day and another challenge, today i am showing my take on the "class" by maria on scrumystash cafe!! has taken me all week , as just had so little time to craft this week!! as you can see a very summery photo , chosen by lewis!! (yes he loves this , as you can see he is in my tummy ~and he finds it funny) so not my choice of photo!! have used papermania christmas paper, glittery hand made paper from my stash, see D`s stamps, hero arts journal stamp, thick chipboard "hope" from my brenda pinnick set and sizzix alphabet!! finished with glitter!!
the photo shows aaron being father xmas, last family avent before lewis was born two months later at the end of february!!! (then there was four!!)

would just like to say a very big thankyou to vickimay (justcosscards) and jo (onlyjoking) for these fantastic cards they sent aaron for his birthday!! they are stunning!!!
aaron loved vicki`s , (helped by her daughter) as she has made him dr who!! "my best card ever" , so from aaron that is praise indeed!!! think i`ll need to step up my game next year!! LOL
also jo`s card is so cool, similar colours and love the image!!
thankyou both so much!!

and last but not least my mother-in -law made aaron this card, for her grandson!! fab colours with great imagination!!

with all those thankyous, i also need to give a big thankyou to fran (franmade) for these fab images , beautiful card and stamp (hope the cheque doesn`t bounce!!) LOL
fran had this card on her blog , and i said how i had missed out on them saturday morning (saw them friday night, but thought i`d wait until sat morning to buy)~they had all sold out ~ learnt one hard lesson!! so fran kindly said she would stamp them for me!! (what a kind friend), but also sent the card and her spare stamp ~ so need to use her now!!

gosh quite worn out now!! so thankyou all again , and for all your kind wishes for aaron on his birthday ~ the boys love indiana jones film - one for all the boys young and old!! pizza hut was good afterwards ~but not for aaron , he was so sick last night!! not really a good end to a perfect birthday!!
hope you all have a great day, ful of fun byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee xx

Love the scrapbook page, like the sewing, was that by hand or machine. Think you could bring the machine Thursday I'll get you doing a few costumes lol.
Aaron did have some great cards. I left a comment on Jo's blog yesterday, loved the stamp Jo used. And I love you MIL card.
big hugs Vicki oxo's

Amazed at how quickly you produce these scrapbook pages and they're fantastic...wish I could work as fast! So glad Aaron enjoyed his birthday...shame about him not feeling so well last night, hope he's better today. Nice to see your MILs work..tell her it's wonderful!

nessy said...

thankyou for your comments ~ yes i sat and hand stitched on that thick card!!! (don`t have a machine)LOL ~thing is unlike fabric, you have to keep going once you have put the needle through, thats why the circles are not really circles ~ guess you didn`t notice!!??
