A Cute Card and Legoland!!

Hi Everyone!!

Happy Sunday... I hope you're having a nice lie in... I was awoken at 6.30 this morning... the joys of parenthood eh??

So anyway I have a card to share today which I made for my best friend's sister's birthday. I decided to use this image as it matched the papers from Making Cards Magazine perfectly (I love these papers designed by Nancy Watt). And also because I purchased the stamp from the NEC last November and had yet to use it... naughty girl lol!!

So here it is... I'm really pleased with how it turned out...

And here is a close up of the little girl coloured first with ProMarkers then highlighted with pencils and the background was blended with pastels with a white pastel used for highlights...

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges...

Penny Black Saturday - Shabby Chic

My Time to Craft - G if for... 'Girl'

And now onto Dylan news... on Thursday our lovely friends Arline and Steve treated us to a day trip to the Legoland Discovery centre in Manchester and we had such a great time!! We went through all the Lego displays and Dylan helped Professor Brick-a-brack to mend his factory! There was a ride to help to save the Princess from the Trolls and then a soft play area. We then spent a good hour making cars to race... Dylan must have had about 50 goes but was unable to win... lets just say there was a boy who was winning ever race and wasn't giving anyone else a go... it was a little annoying but hey ho lol!!

So here are some of my fave photos taken of Dylan in the gift shop with these amazing figures... this was my fave... such a cute policeman!

And this cool car... I bet it took some time to build!!

And all the boys were very impressed with this one!!

We had 2 professional photos took of us all... once Mr Becky has scanned them in I'll post them on here... we met Buzz Lightyear don't you know ha ha!!

Anyway, thanks for looking and well done if you got to the bottom of the page without falling asleep lol!!

Love Becky xx
