Cole's Turning two! Penny Black invite


I call him "baby boy" when I talk to his mama on the phone, but really, he is growing up so fast! He is not a baby boy anymore but a funny little walking, talking moving machine LOL!

I have been busy making the invites to send for his 2nd birthday celebration and finally finished them up and put them in the mail...whew.

Cole loves anything to do with balls. When you are around him, you have to be on your toes so as not to get hit with one flying through the air. It can be a little "ouchie" if you don't pay attention LOL.

This is another of my Michelle B inspired scenes. I just love her creations! I tried to keep this simple enough so that I could make 12 of them pretty fast.

I colored with copics and sponged the sky with Baja Breeze ink from SU...I am so sad that color is gone...I loved it! I also used the SU! retired cloud stencil. I drew in some more grass on the sides of the image and then cut out the hedgie with my nestie and matted it on several colors and then added it back on with dimensionals. The hat, lady bug and mitt are also on dimensionals. His mama wrote up a cute little ditty for the inside about coming over to play ball with Cole...cute!

I can't wait till I get to see the little bugger next weekend for his celebration...I will be sure to share a pic or two! You will me amazed at how he has grown!
