Happy Birthday Lucy.

Today it's my youngest niece's birthday and she's 11!! How did that happen?

Anyways I made her a cow card as she wants to have 2 when she's older. One will be called Daisy and the other Betsy-Lou. And I don't doubt her either. So I used this lovely cow stamp by Penny Black that I got in the sale in January for this very purpose. The thing is, I forgot and bought another dog stamp. D'oh.

I bought Lucy this:

and I got one for me too. It's a fab journal that encourages you to draw in it, rip pages out and basically demolish it using prompts on each page. You can also decorate it as you go along on other pages. I've started mine and Lucy and I are going to compare pages. She was very pleased with it.

I know how does that happen - my son (who is eldest) is 11 in about 5 weeks and I have no idea where those 11 years have gone...

Cows are ace - we have a thing about them in our house too as you can probably tell from my blog youngest who is 4 wants to be a farmer when she grows up - not a farmers wife but a farmer... enjoy the journal...xoxo

What a fab present Kaz - oh and one for yourself too, what a surprise hee hee! Oh and that stamp just dropped into your basket did it? Yeah right, you can't fool us!

Love your cow card, so cute. My calves should be arriving soon, you can send Lucy up to look after them (bullocks though, not cows).
