Happy Birthday To My Son Ben

Hello everyone how are you all? I'm soooooooo sorry for been MIA but before xmas was just so hectic I didnt even have time finish cards let alone blog. I hope you all had a wonderful xmas & hope you were all surrounded with lots of love & laughter. I had a house full, well bungalow lol & I got rather spoilt...............actually everyone got spoilt tbh lol. I've done no crafting & just been enjoying time with my family........

Anyway's today is my eldest sons birthday, Happy Birthday Ben. Yep 23 years ago today I was in hospital because my son decided to come very early...........it should have been February. So here are the only cards I've made since xmas.
 I also have to say I got the inspiration from Pinterest months ago for these..........
There is no colouring on any of these & no papers at all..........just card & buttons ;0)

My sons nickname is 'Cookie' after Cookie Monster, he even has it in his facebook name lol, so of course I had to make him a Cookie Monster card. This card is from Natalie to her big bro!!

I made the bitten cookie with tan card & dark brown card for the choccy chips.

We all love the Minions from Despicable Me dont we...........well we all do anyway lol. We even took Natalie Smyth's toy store yesterday to get her a talking light up Minion............its so cool & funny lol.

I added 2 teeth to his smile & then attached a tag to them which I added a sentiment to...........

This is off Bens younger brother Jake, the sentiment reads 'You are a Bro in a Minion' & I also added Bens age to his dungarees pocket '0) 
The faux stitching I did with a black Memento pen.

I added buttons to his dungarees & buttons to his eyes. I wanted his eyes to look odd, so one button is smaller than the other & I also scratched the surface of the smaller button, which is what the white is.

I was actually quite pleased with myself for these, especially the Minion one although there are some things I will do different if I make another one. The Cookie card was really easy to do & it only took me an hour, will be quicker next time now I've made one before & know what to use to get the different shapes.

Ben absolutely loved these & they gave him a laugh today so they were well worth time spent on them. I've got more crafting to do as its Paytons birthday in 2 days time & I've got Jakes & Natalie's cards for her to do. 

Right I'm off to do some hopping while my grandkiddies are fast asleep..........if they stay that way lol. Will be round soon or tonight peeps
Thank you soooooo much for stopping by & for all your wonderful comments you all totally rock.
