RJ's 2nd birthday

Where have those last 2 years gone?!
Our darling little grandson, Richard, is 2 today :)
Here are his cards, the first one made for uncle Jake to give him...

This is Freddie, I absolutely LOVE this image, it reminded me of RJ the moment I saw it.
I coloured the image with promarkers, and teamed it up with Dino-mite papers by Bazzill Basics.
'nephew' was cut from this die...
Reindeer Names

I cut out the letters that I needed, and used the 'm' for the 'w'.
The number 2 was cut using a Die-namics die (By the numbers).

I'd like to enter 'Freddie' at:

UPDATE 20/10/16:
Thank you so much for choosing my card :)

And here is his card from us...

Can you tell what his favourite film is? My daughter has lost count of the times that she's sat and watched it with him. To infinity..and beyond! ;)
I paper pieced the card, adding the shirt pattern and the cow print with markers.
'Grandson' is a Crafts Too die, I used the same number die as before, and 'RJ' was cut using a free alphabet die from a craft magazine. I used one of the flowers from SU's Boho Blossoms punch for the stirrups on the boots. The star punch is also by Stampin Up. I finished the shirt with Tattered Lace buttons.

Looking forward to seeing the birthday boy later today for his tea party :)
My daughter has made his cake, her first ever make, I think she has done a superb job!

Thanks for looking.
