birthdays are....

well today i am showing the birthday card i made for my brother-in-law who has his birthday on friday. used the wonderful sketch over on friday sketchers and followed the theme over on one stop craft challenge ~buttons and/or bows. used buttons but hey not bows (however there are bows on the lanterns in the image)
used this fab magnolia edwin stamp (not used before), school desk, lanterns and birthday cake. see d`s wording, papermania ribbon, birthday words cuttlebug embossing folder, quickutz photo corners ~mens paper not sure who by (k&co or dove craft ~i guess)


lastly i am trying to keep up with my awards/tags ~ here is the lemonade award from kristin ~thankyou so much for thinking of me ~i will not be passing it on to 5 bloggers (so please take it if you don`t have it already) ~as i have been up most of the night with lewis being sick (yes every where) and this morning ~seems he maybe over it as no sickness this afternoon~just very warm (paul has taken a few hours off work to sit with him, while i do this post ) hope lewis/myself get some sleep tonight .
will visit when i can, byeeeeeeeeeee for now!!
