Sunshine and rainbows

 Good morning,  this fortnight's challenge at Fab'n' Funky starts today. Pat is hosting and she's chosen the fun theme of 'For a child'- a chance to use cute images and bright bold colours. I made this card for my youngest granddaughter- her birthday isn't until July...but she has big plans already!!!! At her nursery they make a big fuss of a 'birthday child' and she can't wait for her turn. It's going to come as a nasty surprise  that it's her big sister's birthday before hers! It's hard to believe that my 'little' granddaughters will be 9 and 4 this year- and the 'big' ones will be 14 and 16- they've all grown up so fast....

I chose this sweet image from the Paper Shelter because it looks like Charlotte, who loves her bike...although hers has two wheels, not three, and she'd be wearing a safety helmet. She's coloured with markers, fussy cut and popped up on foam. The background is another digi from Sweet November - I coloured the rainbow and sky with markers and paper pieced the fields. I chose this background as my son has always called Charlotte his rainbow baby and small children love bright rainbow colours.

My fabulous team have created some beautiful cards for this challenge, so do hop over for a visit, I hope you'll be inspired to play along this time.

Thanks for visiting

Yes, they do grow fast Chris, ours have all finished Uni now, so scary when you look back at time. I am sure your youngest will love this, it's so girly and they love colours.

It certainly is scary how quick they grow up Chris, which also means we are getting older lol. I love your card and I am certain sure Charlotte will just adore it!
