My little boy is getting bigger!

Just a quick post cos I think my other half is feeling neglected :-)

My not-so-little boy, George, is going to be 5 next weekend! Goodness me.... It only feels like we've had him 5 minutes, never mind 5 years! Time really flies....

This Lili of the Valley image was coloured using my promarkers in George's favourite colours. Of course really he should be wearing an Aston Villa kit but I just don't have the colours :-)

The papers are from Crafts Too and I've cut the circles using nesties and the stars using quickutz dies. The letter tiles are a recent acquisition from ebay :-) The top panel is embossed using Sizzix wild dashes Texturz plate.

Only one challenge for this one cos I don't have time to scout around:
Pollycraft Monday Challenge - Special birthday

Gotta go.... Have a fab evening!

Love 'n' hugs,

Hi Mel, Aww this is so cute, I'm sure George will love it. Love the image and fab papers. The letters and stars really finish it off.

Fab card Mel, love the image and letter tiles :o) Isn't it scary how they're suddenly not babies anymore? Dex starts nursery in April and I keep getting all emotional about it! (while also looking forward to all that peaceful crafting time!) Lisa x

Gorgeous card Mel, sooooo cute.
It's scary how fast they grow, I can't believe my babies are 22 & 18, obviously I was an incredibly young mum lol.
I've a claret and blue fan club here too, Jode has her sights set on marrying Ashley Young lol
