For the Boys

June is a pretty busy month for birthdays in our family and on Sunday 14th it's the turn of my nephew and my son to celebrate their special day.
I'm still working on our card for Niall ... GULP! ... it's not easy trying to work when he's hovering around and sticky-beaking into my space ... but I finished this one for Naomi to give to him. The image was in a folder on my PC and I added the text in PSP (Paint Shop Pro) before printing it onto plain white paper and double matting onto coloured card. The stripy paper is from a Paper Cellar pad.
Hopefully he will disappear to bed soon so's I can wrap his prezzies and finish his card from hubby and I ... if not then it'll probably mean a night shift for me.

This die cut decoupage car was completed on Friday and posted to my nephew so hopefully it arrived today ... nothing startling but fingers crossed he likes it.
Hope you are all enjoying a wonderful weekend ... wherever you are and whatever you are doing.
