Birthday Challenge Take 4

Good Morning to all my lovely followers !!
 
Today is week 4 of our 'Birthdays' challenge - lots of lovely entries - I have perused them all but now need to stop by and comment - please bear with me.
 
My card today is using the beautiful 'Through the Ages - 60' digital image.....I added a beautiful ribbon from May Arts and paper from Pink Petticoat - all came together nicely I think.

Punch Art.....

Hello all !!!
 
Not doing a great deal of crafting at the moment - think my mojo has gone on vacation again.
 
I had a request for a card for a 5 year old who is very fond of Angry Birds - I honestly didn't know where to begin so went off to Google images and this is what I came up with.
 
I've never played with punches other than what they should be used for.
I hope Liam likes it.
 
 
 
 
I would like to enter the following challenges:
 
 
Thank you for stopping by

Today my baby is 12 .....

Good morning - and what a scorcher today is going to be.
 
Twelve years ago today at 12:26 Eleanor was safely delivered into the world - she is such a beautiful girl both inside and out - but I certainly wouldn't like to get on the wrong side of her !!!
She is 20 months younger than Lewis but there is only 1 academic year between them and she has been known to sort out people who haven't been too nice to him !!

 
This was taken last night and is the dress she will be wearing in two weeks for my Nephew's wedding - stunnalicious.
 
 
Here is the card that I made from John and I - she likes her bling so I added lots to the card !!
 


 
 
Eleanor is having 5 girlfriends tonight for a sleepover and we are having a
BBQ with the girls parents from 4pm......Eleanor wanted a bouncy castle - so we have arranged one as a surprise.....and wait until you see her cake - I will post back tomorrow with a picture.
 
Have a great weekend !!
 
Hugs

Good Morning !!
 
A new challenge here at LCI but beforehand I must thank everyone for all the beautiful entries for the 'Flowers and Ribbon' challenge - do check to see if you are one of our lucky winners.
 
As we are all busy with Summer and holiday preparations, children breaking up from school we are going to make our next challenge for a month - but don't worry we will be back with reminders
 in between........
 
For this challenge we have been lucky enough to be given a new release
'Through the Ages 6-10' I'm sure you will all love this one.
 
Our lovely Sue has chosen this challenge as today 'her life begins' !!
 
'Birthdays'
 
Without any further waffling from me - here is my card.
I have used 'Age 6' which will be available in the LCI store today
I decided to make my card in primary colours - something I don't normally use but
 thought it suited this card.

Happy 1st Birthday......


Monday morning again and 1st July - where is the time going ????
John and Lewis had a fantabulous weekend at Silverstone - had glorious weather - think Lewis is planning Abu Dhabi next year !!!
Eleanor and I had a lovely weekend - a little retail therapy - a tear jerking movie last night and to a friend's BBQ tonight.....all round very happy.
 
My friend volunteers for a charity that looks after mums who just need that helping hand - whether it be post natal depression, single mums, mums with no close family -  basically anyone. The family that she is looking after at the moment is a mum who has had triplets.....ALL boys !!!
 
Here is my first card using 'Billie is One'  -
