Yes, I know it's blue.

Hi all,

I can't believe it's Wednesday already. Daisy has been off preschool this week as it is half term and Martha has enjoyed having her sister around to play with. This afternoon we went to a birthday tea party of my friend's two year old son. She has a daughter who is threee months older than Daisy, so they disappeared for a lot of the time but reappeared for the food.

I made this card for the birthday boy. I don't usually like to use the stereotypical colours only but I don't have many papers at the moment (the air freight arrived last Friday but I only had room for a small crafting bag of goodies in it) and so had to go for these. The image is by ArTish from Michelle's scrapbooking and more. It does have balloons behind the chair, but I made such a mess of colouring them in, I cut them off. I haven't got the printer sorted out yet, so I couldn't just print out another image.
