Blue Kitty!?!

Today's My Time To Craft post is a little bit late....no idea where my week goes to! I did pop into The Range today & a few crafty things fell in my basket lol! I am loving the new 'Back to Basics' colour range...problem is...I NEED them all lol

Anyhoos today is a very special day in the Swinscoe household. Our baby stinky butt is 1 today, I can't believe it, its gone so quickly from when I found out he had been born to now!!!
This is a picture of Nico & his siblings taken about 2 hours after he was born 

And this is my boy today, trying to eat me lol
I never in a million years thought he would be the wonderful friendly & so loving skunk that he is. He has certainly won my heart & Nige thinks the world of him too
Happy 1st  Birthday to my gorgeous Nico 
Momma loves you xx
