Grandson's Birthday!

Morning blogging buddies.

I'm here in the den quite early today, I've decided to have a lazy day, well I say lazy, I have cleaned, washed, hung out, done some ironing, re-arranged a couple of kitchen cupboards and prepared lunch and dinner so hardly lazy! but I do intend spending the rest of the day in my 'den'

I must be in re-arranging mode today as that's exactly what I'm going to do in the den, the drawers and cupboards could do with a bit of a sort out, so there will be things going in the bin left right and centre, which knowing me I'll probably regret in due course, I'm a devil for chucking stuff out!

So onto crafting....

This is a card I've made for my grandson's birthday. I got the idea from an article I saw ages ago at Trimcraft where you can get a template very similar, but as I can never do anything the easy way, I designed my own template, I wanted it to be much bigger and to put my own slant on it, so this is what I ended up with, I added my usual matching envy to finish it off. 

As usual, recipe below, hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Absolutely fabulous card Jacee! The shape is fantastic as is the whole card design. What a lucky little boy to have a grandparent (didn't know if you're a nana, gran, grandma etc and grandmother sounds so antiquated) so talented to make him a card like this. I hope he has a wonderful birthday. Debra x
