Here Come the Boys

Good morning and Happy Friday! Well tomorrow sees the beginning of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations in the UK. I am looking forward to watching the Queen and the flotilla on Sunday, I would have liked to have gone to London to see it as I think there will be a great atmosphere.  Last night I went out for tea with my aunt and my cousin which was lovely, my aunt is 90 and is still sharp as a razor!!  Tonight my son is coming up with 3 of his pals.  They are staying overnight with us before embarking on the Coast to Coast with their bikes.  I have to go shopping today to make sure there is enough food in - 4 big lads ...yikes!!!!  Anyway I have had a few things going on this last week so I have not been able to finish my card for today so instead I have one that I made a couple of months ago and never posted because I wasn't that keen!


The image is a Whimsy digi and I have coloured it with Prismas but I don't like how I have coloured it.  The papers are Nitwits and I have computer generated the sentiment.  I have used Spellbinders for the image, mat and sentiment.  Marianne dies have been used for the ivy and bird and house.  I have ade the little flowers with punches.  The flowers, ribbons and bling are from my stash.  I would like to enter the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

Well that is it from me for today - thanks for stopping by.  I am off to get ready I have the hairdressers this morning then I need to get loads of food and staples (beer) in for the locusts  lads  coming!  See you tomorrow and hopefully I will have chance to finish my card today, take care xx

Hi Susan,
Well , I’m back and I have the rest of today free so as to catch up on everyone’s creations since I have been away refurbishing my old house.
I adore reading the blog’s and looking at all the lovely cards and projects, almost as much as making the cards myself.
Thank you for your lovely comments on my blog , its so nice to keep in touch.
I love this card I have this birdy image too. I like how you have coloured them, its such a sweet card, great design and details.
I also love the devil card and the one with Ashley with rose is very very pretty. I can see you have been so busy and your craft room looks a great place to work in the sunshine.
Great work Susan well done ,
Hugs Elaine
