Mo's birthday card!

Good morning peeps!!!
Well this time 6 years ago I was in labour, ouch!!!!! at 5:46pm my gorgeous little mo came out to meet us! I won't bore you with all the trauma we had because he is such a happy little man and relatively healthy now!!!! ( ....says lou after spending most of yesterday evening trying to eliminate the temperature of doom he had!!!) He is so very special, and I am so thankful to have him.
So its little mo's birthday!!! and here is his card. He really likes the octonauts an on my yummy create a critter cart there was a pirate octopus that looked just perfect for the job!!

I cut him in blue bazill bling paper and inked his edges a squidge to help him stand out.He is sooooo cute!! I gave him some little rosy cheeks with chalk.
I decided on a little stepper type card. When my BF Fi and I went to a craft shop a couple of weeks ago for their opening the lovely nancy from C&C was making stepper cards with a tent of acetate over them and they were lovely so I decided to have a go at making one!!

And here's a close up of my cute little crabs holding the 6! I played with placing the 6 a little so they looked like they were running off with his 6! awwwww, they are cute!!!
The sand is embossed gold vellum with distressed stripes to make it look sandy!!!!
All the little extras are from create a critter too, including the sentiment, it is such a fabulous cart! I can see lots of little critter cards coming in the next few days!!!
So the birthday boy is off to the theatre with school today to watch the pantomime, he is excited but nervous all at the same time!! bless him!!
Must go and make him a little 6 badge for his school jumper now!
Thank you for popping in for a peek.
Huge hugs
