Happy Birthday Saskia and Ciaran Part 1

Good Morning
Today is Saskia and Ciaran's birthday.
I can't believe that it is 4 years since they were born. I hope that the weather now doesn't mirror that week. We were flooded here in Whyteleafe. I had to walk to the school to collect their brother and sister knee deep in water.
It is even harder to believe that they will be starting school in September, they still seem too little.
As soon as I saw this stamp at the Lili of the Valley stand in Sandown last year I knew that I had to have it. He is called 'Back to School Boy' and is just perfect for Ciaran's card.
This wouldn't have been my usual choice of colours but as his new school uniform will be yellow and grey it just had to be done. I'm really pleased with how it has turned out.
I used the sketch over at CLP Challenge .
The image has been coloured using distress inks. The Happy Birthday greeting and the leaf punch are from Sir Stampalot as are some of the papers.
I bought the dinosaur punch at Sir Stampalot ages ago. When I showed the card to Ciaran's Mum she said that he has been talking about Dinosaurs all week, how spooky is that lol.
The house is very quiet at the moment as they are all out. I'm sure that all that will change when they get back and open all their presents and the visitors arrive. I think I'll make the most of the calm.
Stop by later for Part 2 Saskia's card.
Happy Crafting
