Dexter's Birthday Card

As well as being Stacy's birthday yesterday it was also my nephew's son's first birthday, and my SIL had asked me to make her a birthday card for him. Looking through the computer I found the Jungle Boy Animals set in my Clipart Fairy folder and knew that the lion would be perfect as Dexter's birth sign is Leo.

I used the matching papers and shaper set to make the card and insert, printing the patterned paper straight onto the card and then building the shapers up in layers using foam pads, I printed the lion out a couple more times and layered him up, added glamour dust around the edges of the shapers and there you have it easy, peasy.
The numbers go from one to five and each has a different animal, you can also get the animals and papers in pink for all the little ladies in your lives.

Enjoyed the sneak peek at our grandson yesterday, at the last 3D scan Stace was only 17 weeks so the baby was just a little skeleton covered in skin, this time around, at 27 weeks,  he's really filled out. We didn't get any really decent pics though because he is a little wriggler, every time Stace has a scan or the midwife tries to listen to his heartbeat he just takes off and does his very best to avoid whatever is poking him, the sonographer was laughing because he was kicking and punching the hand piece every time she got it on him. He definitely doesn't like being messed with!

See you friday with the next Polkadoodles challenge.
