Happy Birthday Nephews!

Firstly a little apology for my lack of blogging recently, but my laptop is seriously poorly!  My son had a problem with the power cable of his laptop, so while he was waiting for the new one to arrive I very kindly lent him my laptop and when he handed it back to me, it died :(  We're hoping to be able to retrieve the stuff on the hard drive, but it's not a done deal yet - fingers crossed for me please!  In the meantime, I'm using my daughter's old laptop ...

So, I'm still not finding much time to craft, but have made these two cards for my two little nephews who both have their birthdays in the next week.  Otto, my youngest nephew will be one and one of his bigger brothers (he has three!) Jasper, will be six.

Otto's card is based on one I saw in a magazine in a feature about how to use rik rak:

Jasper's card is one I have made before for males, but I have personalised the number plate with his initials and the age he will be:

Hoping to craft again sometime soon!

  1. Lovely cards, the kids will surely love them! Well done!

  2. Great cards Carole and the moral of your post - NEVER lend your laptop to your son - DS used mine during his holidays from Uni and it hasn't worked properly since.
    Thanks for your lovely emails and sparkles.
