A Very Special Birthday

Hi girls, another day in blogland and it's great to have you here on my wee blog. Hopefully your craft juices will be stimulated by what you find here.
Todays's card is not being entered into any challenges because it is a very special card (for me anyway) because I made it for our grandson Daniel's first birthday which is on Sunday. I think it's safe to publish it today because I don't think it will be seen by anyone in his immediate family on my blog.
I've made it quite simple because it is a boy card (which is not my forte). The paper is an unknown from my old stash but the image is Penny Black's "Goin' Fishin'" and I have coloured it using my Copic Ciaos. I love Penny Black Mice images. The lettering is cut on my Cricut Expressions from Blue Bazzil using the "George and Basic Shapes" cartridge. I put them through a small Xyron machine to give them an adhesive backing. The small stars are from my stash.
I hope you like it and would love to hear what you think of it if you have a minute to leave a comment for me. I do so love reading what you have to say.
I hope that you have a good day and enjoy anything you are doing. Thanks for calling in.
