As today is my daughter's Birthday .... I would just like to say...
Happy Birthday babes!!
I really love this image and it reminds me so much of my daughter, so .... thought it was perfect to use on a birthday card for her. She is not keen on many of the images that I use on my cards. She likes images that are 'real' so this challenge is very appropriate. As she wants money as her main Birthday present, this is a Gift Card, so have put a pocket inside for money.

Paper is 'Ever After' by Gennifer Bursett from Design House Digital.
I can't believe that it is 27 years ago today that my 'baby' was born!!! LOL - it seems like only yesterday....
I thought you might like to see some photos of her. She was premature as I had pre-eclampsia and had to have an emergency Caesarian. Luckily she was quite a good weight 4lb 4oz and was only in the unit for about five weeks - I don't know how mums' cope when they have 'Bag of Sugar' babies weighing only 2lb's!!!
You can see how tiny her little toes were! as for me? well I was on a lot of medication!! LOL
We had to dress her in doll's clothes
Aww... bless... I love this photo - it looks like she is praying...
Hope you liked my photos and a little journey down memory lane .... we have no babies in our family at the moment so it is nice to get the photos out every once in a while.... :-)
I was a very lucky bunny and won the Candy Draw over at Bev's earlier this week and the prize was some gorgeous Label Stamps and Gems. So I would like to say a Big Thank You to Bev!!
My daughter has to go into work today as her draft thesis is due in - can you believe on her birthday!!! she will be back this afternoon though so I can give her pressies. Then later she will be going out with her boyfriend. I'm hoping for a girlie night in with her next week. One pressie I am giving her is a film that was on her wish list - but I really want to see it again too... so thought we could watch it together... nudge, nudge, hint, hint.... LOL
Our boiler isn't working at the moment and so no heat and no hot water. We are having to wash up by boiling kettles. We're hoping to get someone to look at it asap but I just hope they can fix it. A new boiler would be really expensive. Hey ho - these things are sent to try us. I won't be going too mad with the shopping sprees then!!! LOL
