2 years old

Good Afternoon everyone......thanks for popping by. Back as promised in my last post with a card that I made for a 2 year old...keen on trucks and diggers and the like!

and the inside

I used papers from my stash and snippets of bazzil cardstock. The number 2 is  Papermania stamp, stamped on the bazzil and then cut out.The sentiments are computer generated, and I cut out bits from the paper to add as embellishments.
The design was base on a card that I saw on Pinterest and adapted to suit my if yours was the original card...sorry I couldn't seem to source it's origin, but I thank you for the inspiration.

Well another wet and miserable day here in west Yorkshire....summer seems to have disapeared!
Still got some washing waiting until the sun shines......till then I am pleased to say I am up to date with the ironing! able to spend a little me time catching up with blogland.

Hope you have a good weekend whatever you may be up to. Thanks again for stopping by and I love it if you let me know  that you have.
