Birthday Celebrations!

Good morning

It was Hazel's, my MIL, 80th Birthday yesterday and today my son, Jamie, is celebrating his 7th birthday.  We went out for a lovely family meal last night to celebrate Hazel's birthday and this afternoon my Mum, Nan and Hazel are coming over for Jamie's birthday tea :-)

Here's the card I made for Jamie ... He loves cars so I thought this cute Lili of the Valley image would be perfect for his card.  I usually colour with Copics but for some reason I couldn't get the blues right so decided to use Promarkers.  It was good to use them again :-)  I find that for Blues/Pinks I prefer Promarkers and for Skin/Hair/Greys I prefer Copics.
