Happy 1st Birthday card & box

This card I made for a lovely lady at work, Reine. She asked if I could make a 1st birthday card for her grandson, Cole, the family like to call him Buster and she asked if I could put that on the card. Reine is known as "Nanny Tat's" by Cole. Now for all you non Welsh folk, tat's or tat-ta's is what we say when we take our little toddlers for a walk and Cole always refers to his nan now as Nanny Tat-ta's because whenever she looks after him she always takes him for a walk.....oohhhh bless..... So here's a close up of the verse, which I found on the net and just added the necessary wording to make it more personal.



I really enjoyed making this card eventhough it took me most of yesterday. The Magnolia horse and Alota images have been coloured with Copics. The papers are freebie downloads from either Epson or Canon Scrapbook, I can never remember, sorry.
Thanks so much for visiting my lil oasis and for all the lovely comments you take the time to leave, I'm ever so grateful for each and everyone,
luv 'n' hugs xx vicki xx
