Our little boy (not so little anymore) Ruben, turned 8 today. Technically speaking he wasn't born yet, as he was born at 2.32 a.m. in Portland, Oregon, which would be 8.32 p.m. Melbourne time. Well, at least my waters had broken by that time, so we knew it (we didn't know it was a boy yet) was on its way.
Apologies for the rubbish photo, but Ruben is always a tough one to photograph as he moves so fast and doesn't give you much opportunity to take any pictures (or I should just say, it was 8.00 a.m. and I wasn't really with it yet, lol). And this one focused on the bird rather than him, but I do love his smile in this picture. Don't you love his shaggy hairdo? You might think why does an 8 year old get cuddly toys, but he still loves them and especially Australian native animals, as it will be a nice memory of Australia. Have a great birthday, Ruben. I love you!
I made Ruben's card nearly a month ago and it wasn't really a surprise as Renee ran off with it after I just finished it, showing it to Ruben: 'Look what Mummy made for you'. This was actually the first time I used my favourite stamp.
Supplies used: cardstock - Bazzill, PPs - Chatterbox, ribbon - Basic Grey, buttons - Basic Grey, foam stamp - CK, paint - Making Memories, marker, foam alphas - American Crafts, punch - Fiskars, edge scissors - Fiskars.
Enjoy your Wednesday and thanks for stopping by. I love all your comments by the way.
