Happy 1st Birthday

Hello my lovelies so sorry I'm late today in between sorting out the van which got towed to the garage today & then finally getting a courtesy car delivered to us this afternoon.
Anyway it is my grandaughter's 1st Birthday today Happy Birthday Payton darling......
I cant believe she is a year old already, it doesn't seem so long ago I was telling you about her birth......how time flies by........ Anyway I thought I would show you the birthday card & me & gramps that I made........although at this point it doesnt have the sentiment......
I have used one of my favourite Elisabeth Bell stamp, I so love this little girl & when I look at her I see Payton as she gets that little bit older ;0)

Sorry again for the poop pics..........its killing me :0( I have used lace & seam binding from my stash.

This is 'Sweet Cheeks' by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD & I coloured her in copics. I coloured her with dark hair as we think she will be like her daddy, blonde from the start leading to very dark.
E13, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R22, R20
E29, E27 E25, E21
R85, R83, R81, RV10, RV000
Shading done with prisma pencils & also added Pearl Dots around the image.

Paper I used is Magnolia Apples & Cherries '50's Icecream' & Once Upon A Time 'Pink Starlit', I've had these for soooooo long. I've also inked the edges. I made a double bow with seam binding & attached a  Scalloped Pearl to the centre. Added a chipboard numer 1 & added a few flowers, tried to keep them to a min ;0)

Here is the real sweet thing of the day.............
Payton on her new bike what her mammy & daddy got her, they put it in the car so we could see her on it. We should have gone theirs today but we have no way of getting Natalie over there :0(
This is her daddy bring her up the drive-way, isn't that bike darn cute, they arrived the same time as our courtesy car lol. Thats Craig sorting out the paperwork with the bloke who delivered it. Its not the one with the boot open although I would rather drive that one, thats Ben's car. 

So we now have transport for pooping to shops etc we just cant go out as a family cus Natalie cant travel in it. Never mind though its only until next week.

Well thats it from me I will be round to see you all later, I did some last night but then something happened to my blog & blogger took it off until I verified it today. Its never done that before.
Anyway thank you so much for stopping by it means the world. See you all laters my lovelies mmwah
Tatty bye xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
