How old???

I'm back again with my second post of the day! This week at Sweet Stampin' we're challenging you to add a number to your card, in honour of our lovely Susan who will be celebrating a BIG birthday tomorrow!! Now my card is not for Susan, she needs a MUCH bigger number than this on her card :D! This is for my youngest granddaughter who will be two in May....don't know where those 2 years disappeared to! The image is a Mo Manning stamp, one of the first I ever bought! This little cutie looks just like Emily and the cat looks like their poor long-suffering Che....! The letters are made using templates, inked around the edges. Balloons and number are die cuts. I chose bright bold colours to appeal to a small child.
This week our challenge is sponsored by stix2. who are offering a lovely prize to our lucky random winner. To visit the challenge blog click here. To visit Susan's blog, to wish her a happy birthday, please click here!
Thanks for visiting today, have a lovely weekend!
