Manwai's Birthday

Fred (mouse with his tail in the air)
Eek   (Parachute mouse)
by Rick St. Dennis
Printed onto neenah, coloured with promarkers then imported into Serif to remove the white background of the main image. The wall of clocks and the floor were also imported into Serif and melded with the main image. The sentiment was then added and the whole thing exported back into my craft studio for a watermark.
So it's Happy Birthday to Manwai our lovely son-in-law. With Lisa, Jaydn, Jasmine and Poppy, two dogs, one kitten, two guinea pigs and a turtle and his full time job at HMSO with night-time call outs  he needs a bit of a rest! We looked after his flock whilst he and Lisa went out for a meal. We had a brilliant time with the children making loom band bracelets. Jaydn already knew how to make them but little Jasmine learned how to make them so quickly... she's only 5 and made so many she had them from wrist to elbow. Now Colin is hooked on making them - he has a loom being delivered next week with a supply of the little bands and has already asked me about beads to embellish them. I'm actually getting quite excited about a whole new range of bracelets and anything else he will be making. I love it that he likes crafts, not as much as I do but still he gets very involved in rug making and now these loom bands... I wonder what he will be making next.
