My gorgeous hubby's birthday!

 Papers and present- Happy Happy Birthday from Funky Hand.
Morning Peeps!!
Its my amazing husband's birthday today and I thought I would share the card I made for him last night (...yes, I know it was leaving it a bit fine but mr mojo is only coming in bursts at the minute!)
Luckily I had a little idea bubbling in my little fuzzy head so I picked a few papers from the Just for Men colourway on my Happy Happy Birthday papercraft factory from Funky Hand and got busy!!

I even paper pieced my little mini tilda stamp! I stamped her in memento rich cocoa on some of the patterned paper and a scrap of my normal colouring paper then cut out the bits I wanted to piece onto her like her bow, dress and socks.
I made the pressie all patterned by popping it onto the spotty paper I wanted before I printed it out in the workspace, I love that workspace!! I coloured in the bow and popped it out on some foam. Tilda is popped out too.
And now.... the little guys make for Daddy!!!
Mo wanted to make a "card and present in one please Mummy" and he knew exactly what he wanted to do which was fab!!!
He chose the Craft The Year Away papercraft factory and the "wordbook making bit" for his. I love the way he describes what he wants, it makes me giggle :)
He wouldn't let me help other than to push the big bite down to make the holes!! ( he isn't keen on the big bite as he squished his hand under the handle once!!) He cut them out all by himself and only needed me to line them up for him to get them all the right length.
I love that he added those little MS punched butterflies. He said  " I need to use his punch from clare's shop" .....I don't mind the fact that that was about the only thing I bought from Clare's a couple of weeks ago for me.... :) and he glued them on "all flyey floaty" cute!!
Then he added some pictures of him and daddy doing things they love to do together. 
This page is daddy in goal and mo kicking the football. I adore that he added those little swooshy lines from the ball going fast!!! I also love that Mo is not afraid to write down his feelings, I think that is so important for little boys to be able to do that.
This page is daddy and mo one of their bike rides. Mo has a little tag bike that goes on Scott's bike when we go to clumber or out for long bike rides.
This is daddy and mo washing the car!!!
And then Mo had to try out my new SU pennant punch to make a flag!! he had seen it in my SU catalogue and thought it would be fab for a best daddy flag!! attached to a cocktail stick!!
Mo has a lot more mojo than me at the minute!!! but this wordbook present is just so adorable and special for daddy. I love that there are wobblies in his cutting and sticking because it is all done by him. He loved tying the knots in the string through the holes as he always struggles a bit with knots and got these ones first time, clever chap.
So thats us for today!!! Mo is off to school and super excited as we are picking his best friend, Sophia, up from nursery on our way home for a play. She lives next door and he adores her!! he thinks she is cute and loves looking after her!! Scott and I are off together today and we might go out for a birthday lunch at damon's, yummo!!!
Huge hugs and thank you's for bearing with me on a proud mummy post!!!!

    I wanted to ask you about this, I remember the gorgeous SMILE one that you did ways back. Do the Funkyland CD's send the info to a cutting machine? Not sure how it works?
