Ruby`s 4th Birthday

Hello Blog Friends,

I`m sure I must have mentioned that it was Ruby`s 4th birthday last tuesday (31st July). It really doesn`t seem like 5 minutes since I watched her being born and with everything that she`s been through these last few months, it seems like an extra special birthday. She received lots of presents, ofcourse, and some fabulous new clothes. As she already has more toys than Toys R Us we got her some books. I like to encourage all the kids to read as much as possible and Ruby does love her books.
Anyway, I made her a card and Angie asked if I`d make one from her too so I`m sharing them both today.

 First up is the one I made for Angie to send.
Image is Wee Suzi from Wee Stamps coloured with Promarkers and Spectrum Noir pens, cut out with a nestie oval die and matted onto a nestie beaded oval.
DP is by Pink Petticoat 
The butterflys are MS punch
Ribbon from stash
For the card from Alan and myself I used a digi stamp from Mo digital pencil.
coloured with markers and added a bit of glamour dust.
The DP is actually Me to You Christmas paper but as it`s not obviously christmassy I thought it worked well with the colours on the image.
I made 3 glitter stars using a nested stars die by X Cut and made the wand by using 2 dies and adding some clear gems. There is a stick that took me ages to make by rolling some pink tissue paper with a skewer but I`ve almost hidden it behind the image.
The glitter no 4 is from a pack from Poundland.

I`ve scheduled this post so I hope it works, my last one didn`t for some reason. Fingers crossed :)
Enjoy the rest of your day.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
