My little boy........ turns 21...

How amazing is that?
I am the luckiest Mum in the world. I have a fantastic son.
It has been an honour for me to be a part of his journey so far.
It has been the most wonderful journey getting to watch him grow from that tiny little baby in my arms to the fantastic man he has become.
I am really proud of him.
Happy 21st birthday Kris!! I hope all you dreams come true.
I'll be back on after the weekend with some pictures to show you (I can't show you them just now as he hasn't had his card yet! lol)
It will be a fun packed weekend.....

Another of Chris's stamp samples....

I am loving these stamps, here is another card that I made using them.
I created a shadow box with this stamp. I think it works really well.
So many of these stamps could be used for so many things!
They are available for you to buy now!
You will find the link to Chris's site below or on my side bar.
Be back soon with some more samples.
I hope your having a great weekend whatever you are doing....... if you are looking for a crafty challenge, pop on over to the Elle challenge to see what we have all be up to... Come and join in the fun!

My special little man

Dylan is one of my rescue springers....
He is the softest lump that you will ever meet.
Every day both he and Daisy love to run through the woods to see what they can find....
On one walk this week, Dylan worked really hard at finding this.....
This ball become his pride and joy. He looked after the ball really well and loved playing with it all day. He was so careful with it all day.
Then at night time there was a loud pop and the ball hissed down to nothing....
This was what he thought of that one!!!
Another task for the dyson!!! Oh how I love my dyson....
Daisy never sits long enough for a piccy but I'll try and get one soon.

Clean and simple

This card is made using the birdsong papers - another of the collections from Do Crafts out at the mo.
I just wanted to keep this one clean and simple to show that card making in a hurry is very easy if you have some nice papers.
