Cobie age 5

Wow It's hard to believe that Cobie is 5 tomorrow, this time 2 years ago we couldn't begin to imagine how well he would be now. He still has another year of chemotherapy to do, but things are looking really promising, that he has kicked this terrible illness up the butt. All thanks go to Sheffield Children's Hospital. 
He WAS...... really into Ben 10, so I made a card accordingly, only to be informed on Saturday night when he and his little sister Lillie had a sleep over at ours, that he don't like him anymore (he's rubbish) and Pokemon are now in vogue, so while everyone else is sat out enjoying this glorious sunshine that we're having at the moment it was back to the drawing board for me!
At least I got another play on my Cricut, I really must use it more

Friday 22 April 2011


This is my take on a masculine card the image is a Flippin coloured with promarkers, I've added the sign on a brad so it actually swings, I'm entering it into a challenge over on
