We spent a long time planning this keepsake card as it was for the birthday of an incredibly special little boy.
A very special friend of ours, Shellybobbins’s son turned one year old on 6th March 2013 so we wanted to create something unique and personal to baby Noah.
We just hope that Noah and his lovely family like our design!!
We wanted a prince image as Noah is indeed a very special little prince, so we found this lovely deecoupage prince sheet from a local craft shop, the frog was added as there is a children’s cartoon titled the “Frog Prince” and of course we have the very special number one. The rainbow background design was taken from the design of the “Hugs For Noah” logo and the order of colours on the rainbow we have used is the same order as his logo. The rainbow on the hill is a digital stamp which we have hand-coloured.
We added a birthday verse and a boat to the opposite side of the bookatrix card, we know that Noah’s Ark has a huge significance to Noah and his family so the boat had to be included, as did the gorgeous little handprints!!
The reverse of the card has a card stand incorporated which has inside a very special birthday message to Noah… special words to a very special boy with lots of love from Laura and Gordon.
No special birthday keepsake would be complete without a co-ordinating presentation box, for this we have used silver card which has a Noah’s Ark digital stamp mounted on it. The digital stamp has been hand coloured, the rainbow using the same colours as Noah’s logo, we used Promarkers to colour this and Stickles glitter glue to add dimension to the clouds.
I hope Noah likes his birthday card with it’s co-ordinating box :)
Happy birthday Noah, with lots of love and hugs from Laura and Gordon xxxx

Today has been a very special day… the first birthday of the incredibly inspiring Noah aka BabyBobbins, beautiful son of Michelle Wall Shellybobbins aka Shellybobbins.
Noah is such a little star, he has been through so much in his short life so far and has overcome so many obstacles but every day he continues to show us his beautiful smile and remind us that whatever we are going through in life, a smile can lift your mood so much.
We have not been lucky enough to meet Noah in person yet, though have spoken lots online and on the phone but I find it truly amazing that we can feel so much of a connection and so protective of a little boy we have never met.
I don’t know how you can love a little boy you’ve never met quite so much but I can honestly say that we love Noah so very very much and cannot wait until the day we meet Noah and his family in person.
Happy 1st birthday Noah, today is just a small taster of the many fantastic birthdays you have ahead, all of our love, today, tomorrow and always ♥ xxxxxx
