Tomorrow is a special day, my ‘baby’ is 3. I still can’t believe that I had a baby on April Fool’s Day but never mind, I guess someone has to have it as a birthday. I hope she appreciates how awesome her date of birth is, 1.4.14 is like a maths whizz’s dream come true. (She does like numbers actually, as in she’s aware if her brother gets more than her!)
Anyway, I did my usual trick of thinking there’d be a fairy to make her card. Low and behold, the night before her birthday I had to get out the craft stash and make one myself. I chose a decoupage kit I’ve had for years, as she likes animals, cake and strawberries so I decided it would be just the job! I also couldn’t be bothered (naughty mummy) to get the Cricut machine out to cut out a single number 3 so I turned a self adhesive letter ‘w’ on it’s side. No one ever needs to know that it’s not really a 3!
I adore the strawberry glitter paper from the decoupage pad and paired with a gingham paper I think it looks even sweeter. A little spotty ribbon and a love heart diamanté on the dog’s nose made simple finishing touches. All made whilst the tea cooked, multi tasking at its best!
I can’t wait for the morning when she opens her card and presents, we have a special day out planned which we are all very excited about. Hopefully there’ll be lots of photos and a blog post to follow.
