A very Happy Birthday to your little man, Nic! He's the same age as my little man and he too tells his Mum and Dad that he loves us everyday - enjoy it whilst it lasts as when they get to teenagers, they barely speak to you! Hope he has a wonderful day, having fun with his friend and eating lots of cake!
Fab card! Love the fresh colours, pretty papers and stitched detail! (Must get my machine out and try again, my last attempt was a knotted mess!) Hugs, Lisa x
