James 1st Birthday - Allsorts

Last night and this morning I spent making a picture for my Godson James's 1st Birthday this week. I asked Vicky her preference - James does like Thomas already - so Thomas it is. Have to admit I was most of the way through it when I realised I hadn't put James( one of the other engines) besides Thomas as i'd thought!
That will have to wait for his Christmas pressie!
It's ideal for Allsorts Challenge this week - something for the men/boy's.
I used a picture of Thomas and paperpieced alot of it then added detail with copics.
Background are Basic Grey papers which I think worked really well.
Pop over and have a look at the fab prize they are giving away this week and some great DT cards....


  1. Lol, it's Thomas and Percy!! We have a Thomas book called Thomas Helps Out that gets A LOT of use, it has buttons of each character that sound when you push them, a mothers' dream, right? Well, my son saw your "Somas" card and ran straight to his room and fetched his book!!
    Very cute, James will cherish it!!

  2. This is so lovely for a little boy. love the papers too, really works well. You are a Clever girl.
