My Baby is nearly 2!

This card is for my baby, he'll be 2 on 3rd July! I can't beleive he's grown up so fast ;-( He loves Dora the Explorer, Diego and Roary the Racing Car! I was going to make a Roary card like I made for my friends little boy a while back but decided to go for Diego instead! I think I will do him a little Diego themed birthday party too.

I wanted to make it a bit special so I've made this card 8" x 8" square. I've had to make a spine to stick the two pieces of card to as the largest card I have is about A4. Only problem is I dont have an envelope to fit it! I'll have to have a look on ebay or make one myself. The Diego picture is actually recyled from one of his easter egg boxes. All of the cardstock is Doodlebug crisscross. I've got my sizzix alphabet out and cut out his name and the number and then I've layered them onto another blue card and cut round them individually, it was fiddly and took a while but he's worth it! I downloaded the little animals from the internet and stuck them into the letters. I really like this card and I'm sure he'll love it.

I think I need a rest now!
