First post of 2020!

Hello my lovely blog chums.....yikes, we are nearly a third of the way into January, and I realised I hadn't blogged this year, yet!
I do hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year time,  Ours was quiet, but enjoyable nonetheless.

One of the high points was the first birthday of our gorgeous twin grandsons, Will and Alex. Their first year has flown by, and they are an absolute joy, neither are walking independently.........yet, but both pull themselves up on the chairs and cruise along like that, so I'm sure it won't be long, lots of babbling too, so I think we will have two little chatterboxes, lol

when they were born, they were delivered a couple of weeks earlier, and I never got to making New Baby cards for them so I was determined to make special birthday cards. Obviously I made two cards, I am saving the other one as I think the image will be perfect for an up and coming DT card, but this is Will's card. I had been commenting on a challenge card just before Christmas and I loved the U-fold style that had been used, so decided it would be fun to try........

The super cute image is from Gerda  Steiner (how sweet!!!!), coloured with ProMarkers. I used a combination of papers from Limetree Crafts. I added a variety of die cuts to set it off.

I have a couple of challenges that I am entering, but before all that I thought I would share a little photo of the boys.....enjoying breakfast on their birthday (Alex is eating and Will has the red cup)

So, onto the challenges......
