Lexi’s Creations #77 Special Birthday

Woohooo Lexi’s Creations is three years old and in celebration of that we would like to see you create a special birthday card.

Lexi 77 Special Birthday

We are sponsored by 125_x_125_Rotating-MCC_plainwith a free seat to a class of their choice and by our original sponsor and creator of Lexi’s Creations, Lexi from 1image with 5 digis from her store.

My card is special because it’s for a little girl who is One year old. Baby’s first birthday, such an exciting time. I can still remember my own Daughter’s first birthday almost 28 years ago! She was already into so much mischief then, climbing into the bay window, putting things down the toilet and blocking it, and just generally filling my life with laughter! She started walking bang on her EIGHT month birthday! I remember my Mum bought her one of those baby walker things, this one was a huge telephone on wheels with a tall handle that the baby is supposed to hang onto and push the phone across the floor, holding on in order to steady themselves.

My Mother’s face was an absolute treat when she sat and assembled this and placed it on the carpet in front of Emily, she then got all excited as Emily scrabbled to pull herself up until she was holding onto the handle. It was at this point whilst my Mum was whispering to me ‘look, look!’ that Emily lifted the telephone walker off the ground and walked a few steps with it in the air! Happy Days…………. oooops back to the matter in hand. So my card is for a one year old.

How difficult is it to find a number one that you can print! I searched and searched but couldn’t find one with a fat enough bottom! I wanted to create a One shaped card, but couldn’t find one suitable for doing that with. Eventually I found the one I have used on my pc but it wasn’t fat enough to support what I wanted to do, so I just printed it and then trimmed it out in Basic Grey paper. I have edged it and the top layer of bp with white pen. The swirl on the number is a sizzlit die. The little circle banners are from Whimsey Stamps with their matching stamp set. The image is Panda Dress Up Dee from our own Lexi, coloured with copics, although I am not happy with the panda’s fur. The little teddy, at least I think it’s a teddy, charm was in my stash.
