Cute Card Thursday - Family Affair!

First of all, I'm thrilled to have won the CCT challenge prize last week - a cute set of stamps from The Greeting Farm - thanks guys xx.

Secondly, how did they know at Cute Card Thursday that it is my son's 20th birthday on Sunday and that I needed to make a card? The challenge this week is to make a card for a family member - perfect!!! So here it is, using Basic Grey Cupcake papers and die cuts, with a photograph of my son which is behind acetate in a chipboard frame. Just need to put some cash inside and he'll be happy! He's at university in Birmingham studying to be a PE teacher, and is coming home tomorrow to celebrate with his friends, then all the family are going out for a meal on Sunday, so a lovely weekend in prospect (especially as I'm going to the Papercrafts Extravaganza in Harrogate on Saturday!).
Have a super duper day xxx
