Birthday Midweek Reminder

Hi all...hope you've had a great day. I know I'm a bit late with my reminder (again) but it's still Tuesday right lol.

I treated myself to a fab die MFT a few weeks's the mini chicken wire and it's fabtastic! There are so many ways to use it but I decided to go for the easy option first ... placing some pp behind it. I think it turned out pretty darn cute iidssm (if I do say so myself) lol

This time I've used Cupcake Cutie Blowing Out The Candle which I've printed and coloured with my Copics. I paper pieced the wrapper, added Fluffy Stuff for frosting sprinkled with glitter before fluffing with my heat gun. I stamped the sentiment from my Paper Smooches Birthday Sampler sentiment set and stuck it to the card with foam pads before adding the button with my glue gun.

I added Glossy Accents to the flame then sprinkled it with glitter

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

One weekend a month Ben's mom is going to be looking after Coen (They live 3 hours away). Moira says it's to give me a break but I look at it as a chance for her to spend time with Coen. She came down for her shift this passed weekend arriving Wednesday night. I picked Moira and Coen up on Thursday and we went to Rouken Glen for lunch and a nice walk and that was the last time I saw him until yesterday!!! Boy oh boy did I miss him lol. 

Coen & Moira

I took this picture on yesterday (Monday). I think if Coen could speak he would be saying....Grandma, I'm just too tired to smile lolololol

This is my favourite for a long while. I have a smoothie for breakfast which consists of spinach and banana and a combination of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, mango and pineapple. You don't need to's really yummy and you can see from the picture Coen loves it too. When I made it the last time he was here he watched me put it together, blend it then got really animated until I have him some lol.

That's it for now...I gotta get back to work. Been working on that project I might have mentioned the last time ;-D

Thanks for stopping by

Catch ya later x
