Good morning bloggers and Happy Friday (big happy dance from me). I am off down to London by train today to spend the weekend with my darling grandson - whoop whoop. I am coming back Sunday that is unless he has chicken pox then I will stay on to look after him whilst DS and DIL go to work. He had chicken pox in February but Stephen, my son, rang yesterday to say nursery said he had started with some more spots. Hopefully it may be a bit of a heat (????!!) rash ok maybe not heat then but sweat or some insect bites. I haven't seen him since February and he is now 19 1/2 months so I am super excited.
Here is the card I have made for today:
The image is a Paper Shelter one and I am just in love with these at the mo! I think she is supposed to be a circus ringleader really but I have these gorgeous papers by Prima called En Francais so I thought she looked quite French maybe from the Moulin Rouge! It really took me ages to make this card most of the day on Wednesday! I have coloured her with Copics and Prisma Pencils. The image has been cut out with Spellbinders and then distressed with Weathered Wood and Victorian Velvet DIs. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Wild Rose and has been stamped on part of a page from the pad which I cut out and then added some ribbon and a bow to it. The flowers are Memory Box and the border punch is a Tonic. I have embossed the border and the metal butterfly with my Stampendous aged aqua EP which is so lush - I love it. To the centre of the flowers I have added Stampendous steel blue crushed glass glitter.
