I hope your little man gets bigger! I'm sure he'd enjoy a diet of cake!!

This is a fantastic card! I love the papers and image, but the icing on the cake is that fabulous green brad!

Absolutely gorgeous, love it coops! Lyns xx

Sheila said...

Lovely card Nic. Such a wee cutie on there and such bonny papers too! I am sure your wee man is fine - as long as he can run rings around you guys and get up to mischief there is nothing coming over him. But that doesn't mean you can't give him lots of goodies to eat (just so long as you treat yourself too!!). Have a fab weekend Nic, Sheila:)X

karen said...

Gorgeous card - the wings look stunning, and this little image is totally my favourite :) The bow with the brad looks brilliant!

Awww, lots of cakes - thats too cute :) I expect he will grow up to eat like a horse before long, boys tend to do that, but in the meantime enjoy spoiling him :)

I too try to catch up with commenting. Due to my rubbish internet, I cant keep on top everyday, but I try to find a good few hours when the internet is playing nicely, and its great to catch up and see lots of news stuff on my favourite blogs! :)

Have a great weekend

Beautiful card Nic with perfect colouring - one of my fav LOTV images.
I was also bullied for being thin as a child - and now I'm.... well, lets just say 'weighty'! Pschologically, I SHOULD eat that next Mars bar.... hehe well that's what I keep telling myself...

Hi Nic,

Love the paper combos on this one, spring may be on the way after all! As always, your colouring is great! (I think I'm going to have to invest in some Promarkers one of these days-I know, where have I been?) Fab card!

cardmaking bird said...

Beautiful card, Nic! Love the mix of papers you've used and the detail in the fairy is stunning. Thanks for the email about your tute's btw - I've been trying to follow them but not doing too well (nothing to do with your insructions, I'm just poo!!)
Don't worry too much about your little man - if you want any help finding calorie laden food, let me know cos I've had huge problems being underweight since I've been ill, but at my last check up, I finally had a BMI of 19!!! (It's only taken 4 years!)
Anyone, now I'm rambling LOL!! But lastly, don't stop rambling cos I love hearing about YOU not just your cards!! That's how we all get to know people through blogland!! Hugs, Marie xx

meeshka said...

What a pretty li'l card, Coops! Love, love, love the way you coloured the stamp up! And wow! All those lovely layers! I'd love to receive a card like this... truly, I would!

Don't worry too much about the little man, he'll fill out as he gets older. I was the same and like you, I got bullied for being skinny, but kids will pick on other kids for just about anything, just gotta laugh it off. My daughter is just like I was too, so I tell her to make jokes about herself if anyone says anything so that it looks like it isn't getting to her... it does work :)

Thank-you for popping by my blog and commenting, it really cheers me up to see such lovely comments :)

Lovely card Nic, superb colouring and I love the papers.

Vicky said...

I wouldnt worry about your little man being skinny it haps to loads of kids my youngest grew up skinny & never got bullied he is not skinny now mind lol. I've got 2 nephews who live in stoke who are both small & skinny for their age & have never got bullied for it actually its different for lads cus they wear baggier jeans & trackies & if they are small girls tend to find them cute lol. I was always skinny finally after having my 5th child I filled out a bit & am now in a 10 where it used to be a lot skinnier lol. As long as he is healthy hun be happy. My youngest actually made a nickname for himself cus he used to be chubby he called himself 'Fatman Scoop' so cus he made fun of himself kids got bored it didnt bother him. I used to call him my little fatman lol.
Sorry for the long comment your card is gorg I love the image.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

Great card Nic and I just love the mixture of papers.
You have coloured the image beautifully.

Sarpreet said...

Such a gorgeous card - love the image.

xGemmax said...

Stunning coops, gorgeous colours you have used and such a sweet little image :o)

Doctor should make their minds up one minute kids are too fat or too thin, they are never happy!
My 13 yr old is 5ft 6 and really skinny but eats for england so it just goes to show some kids are meant to be slim opinion is as long as they are eating a nice healthy balanced diet and not causing any health problems, they should leave them alone!

Hugs and xxx
