baby boys first birthday..

Stamp- LOTV Baby Boy.
Morning peeps!!
well I have to admit mum's surgery and other bits if life took a big whack of my little Lou crafty mojo this week but I had a gorgeous birthday card to finish and enter into the new LOTV monthly challenge so when I got home from work last night I got it done ( then crashed out in bed at 7pm and didn't get up until 5am this morning.....!!!)

I absolutely adore this stamp. I got it a while ago and have only just gotten round to giving him some inkies!!! but seriously awwwwwww!! and just right for that special first birthday milestone too!!!

The papers are from my papermania set Portabella road. It is just gorgeous and being as freddie was born in jubilee year I thought they would be super to use. He is coloured up with promarkers with a few little gel pen dotties here and there!!

And while I am here!! My mum was discharged from the hospital yesterday afternoon! Now I have to admit I am both pleased and terrified that she has been let home. Pleased because I know she was struggling to sleep and misses home terribly but terrified because it took them a long time to get her off oxygen and she really wasn't with it. I spoke to her at 6pm last night and she was just getting some fresh pj's on ready for bed so hopefully she has had a restful night. Thank you so much for all your thoughts and prayers for her, I know they carried her safely.

Right got to go, need to go to the post office and pick up a parcel I missed yesterday while I was at work!!

huge hugs Lou xxxx
