29 Again?

I had fun making a card for one of my work colleagues.  Her birthday was Sunday and I gave her this one on Friday.

I got an order in from Simon Says stamp during the week and it included a couple of Art Impressions stamps.  This one made me laugh.  Val was only turning 34 but I though the sentiment (from StampNation's Young at Heart collection) went perfectly with these ladies.  I coloured with Copic makers.  Val really loved it and appreciated the thought.
Entering into the challenge at Great Impressions...  Ladies Night...
and Virginia's View Friendship Linky Party 

I also got asked to make a card for a three old.

As I had to make it quickly, I used some pre-printed Wee Stamps decoupage sheets.  There are three layers on this one.  I found a three on a Bugaboo image and printed and cut out.   Finished with a Happy Birthday stamp.

I'm sitting on tenterhooks at the moment.   Our daughter is due to give birth any day now.  We are just waiting with our phones fully charged waiting for the call to say our grandchild has been born.  They have not found out the gender so it will be an exciting time when it happens.  I hate that we are so far away (she lives in Perth Australia - a 7 hour flight to get there) but we are booked to go over on the 14th of May to see the baby.  Can't wait!

Thanks for stopping by today.
