Birthday Boy!!

Hi everyone

Welcome to another post, would you believe my little boy turned 5 this week and now he's five this is what we got told "he doesn't moan anymore, is bigger now and can do anything now he is five and bigger!!!  Love him xx  He is one lucky little boy as he received so many beautiful messages, cards and gifts, we have spent the remainder of the week making up Lego, although I must say he is very good and will sit follow the instructions and make up whatever it is, unless it is aged 8-12 then he had a little difficulty and so did mummy!!!!  Daddy to the rescue....  I made and decorated lots of cupcakes as he did not have a big party just small gatherings of kinder friends, mother's group friends and grown ups.  Here is a picture of my grown up little boy!
Charlie the Morning of his 5th Birthday

Completed 4WD Lego Kit that Nanny & Grandad Den Sent from UK.

Charlie's Cupcake
It currently seems to be one party after another we have been to two today and have plenty more over the next few weeks.  So for me it is lots of card making and gift wrapping. The birthday card I made for Charlie was using Bizzy Becs - Boyz will be boyz Collection Cool Cody, coloured using copics the papers were Kaisercraft Technologic Collection and the cogs were woodchip from Scrapmatts the number 5 I cut out using my Cricut machine..
I would like to enter this card into the Mad for Markers Challenge - Masculine Colours
Copics used: E000, 00, 11, 13, 30, 31, 33, 35 B000, 00, 12, 18, 28 R20, 11, 17, 27, V01, YR00, YG91, 93, 95, 99 

This week I also managed to complete a frame each for the boys bedrooms which I have been meaning to do for a long time: I cut their names out with my Cricut onto Metalic card attached different coloured card behind each letter added the punched out circles and put them in the frames!! Unfortunately, the photos do not do the frames justice, but here you go...

Would you believe have also started knitting again this week all very simple scarf's the ruffle one that look very effective and am going to sell them so will post photos next time.
This is it for now, hope you all have a wonderful week, thank you for stopping by. 
Many thanks.
