Happy 21st Birthday Ben

Today was my son Ben’s 21st Birthday!  I can’t believe where all those years have gone.  I’m such a proud Mum of all Ben has achieved in his 21 years, from being a great tennis player winning so many seasons in his local league from the age of 6yrs….. to today with his carpentry apprenticeship.

He is my only child – so you could say he gets spoilt…. but I know he appreciates all I do for him.

This is my card

He will be celebrating with his friends next weekend when we have his 21st party.  But he had a small gathering today at home with some close friends, so I made him a giant cupcake!

and here he is getting a birthday kiss from the girls…..lol

Love you my darling son! xxxx

Until later, happy stampin’

Twins turn 6

Oh my gosh I have made lots of cards recently for my friends/family’s children & don’t seem to have posted them….. oops!

It was my wonderful friend & hairdresser Kim’s twins – Joseph & Luke birthday nearly 2 weeks ago now.  They are just adorable boys & I love the way they greet me when I visit.  Joseph is just such a chatterbox & Luke is just such a loveable boy although he is leaving that shyness behind more & more.  They’ve even been media celebrities a couple of times….. just priceless!!!

These are the cards I made them:

Luke loves red

Joseph loves blue

Belated Happy Birthday Joseph & Luke!! xx

Stamp: I Dig You

Until later, happy stampin’
