Happy Birthday Emma

Yesterday was a big day, my BFF's daughter Emma was 1 year old - I can't believe its a whole year since she was born - where does the time go??

Pamela has as bit of a thing for Charlie & Lola at the moment, so I thought it'd be a good idea to make a Lola card. I actually made 2 cards as I decided I hated the first one after I made it. Am not overly keen on this one either but its the better of the two. I kept it simple as Pamela doesn't think much of fussy embellishments - as regular readers will know she thinks the whole crafty thing is pretty gay lol

Anyway, here goes...

Image: Lola taken from a print and colour on the cbeebies site, coloured with promarkers; blush for her skin, rose pink and maroon for her cardy, pumpkin for her skirt, pastel blue and china blue for her shoes, forest green for the leaves in her hair and lemon for her hair.

papers are all Basic Grey - Cupcake, card is core'dinations, the greetings circle was punched from core'dinations card, the greeting was hand doodled with sakura white med gel pen, WRMK eyelets and the other core'dinations panel was punched with the MS doily lace border punch

Here's Lola's close-up...

Never heard of Charlie and Lola but my excuse is that Cbeebies is not a favourite channel in our house any more.
Had to laugh at your friend and her 'gay comment. I'm old enough to remember when 'gay' meant 'happy' so I'm ok with that LOL!
