First Day of School and a Baby card!!

My baby boy (now 6 ) :-) started his first day of school today!! I thought I was going to get a bit teary eyed when I said goodbye to him but I had such a drama filled morning that it never happened!! Last night I went out to shut my car windows but then forgot to take the keys out of the ignition so 5 hours later the battery had totally drained and so my car wouldn't start!! So thankfully it wasn't raining when I had to take Liam to school this morning so we walked. So we did, but only about 100 steps out of the house and liam was so excited about starting school that he started running and fell over and cut his knee open!! So we had to go back home and patch up his knee, then walk to school!!! I didn't stay at school long, just settled Liam in and left cos he had made some friends and went and played with them.. he was happy so I was happy!! Was excited when I went to pick him up from school to hear how his day was but all he wanted to do was go to a friends house, so off he went.. Finally came home at 5pm and really haven't heard how his day was except that he had a great day!! As long as he was happy and wants to go back that is the main thing!!
Liam's first day of Prep!!

After his fall!!
 Onto my card!! A friend of mine had a baby last month and I only just found out so this is the baby card I made for her!!! Not sure where the paper is from but I've used a magnolia stamp, swiss dots embossing folder, some kindy glitz , rock candy stickles and coloured him in with Aquacrayons and chalks!!

I have entered this card in the following challenges:

* The Sisterhood of Crafters - Anything Goes
* Forgotten Scraps - Anything Goes
* Magnolia Down Under Challenges - Embossing - dry or heat
* Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Glitter (on wings and dots)

Until next time... Enjoy!! xx
