Birthday Boy

I made this for my Grandson who will be 4 on 29h November.
It's a bit different from my usual style and I enjoyed the challenge.

I used components from a set I got from Donna over at Donna's Den of Crafts.
They were perfect for my 4 year old grandson. I am always racking my brain, (what bit I have), for boys cards and these elements are just the job I reckon!
The paper is a single sheet I got at Monk's Den craft shop in Ashby-de-la-Zouch a couple of weeks ago.
I'll have to keep an eye out for more 'coz I like it.

The '4' was cut with my Sizzix alphabet. The circles were punched out.
The CS is Bazzil as usual!

I'm quite pleased with this card. It didn't take me ages like they usually do, which was a bonus.
Well, that's all from me today. I've been with Mum all morning at a Wiltshire Farm Foods tasting session in the complex where she lives.
I thought it worth attending as Mum needs something like this. She isn't eating properly since she moved in.
She had to change to an electric cooker as there is no gas there. At 90 years old, it's a bit much for her to take on board and consequently, isn't cooking herself a proper meal now.
Anyway, she likes these ready meals and they are being delivered tomorrow. I ordered her 2 week's worth to see how she gets on with them. I got home at about 2pm and after doing some shopping and watching my son put a flat pack wardrobe together, the day has vanished!
OKAY, I've bored you enough, I'm off.
Thanks for stopping by and I WILL catch up with you very soon!
