Good morning to you all! Happy weekend hope you have something nice planned for it or maybe some lovely chilling time?
I had a great time yesterday seeing my friends for lunch and a great old chin wag and it was lovely to able to sit outside whilst we ate! One of my friends celebrates her 60th birthday in a few weeks. She is having a big party with a marquee, waiters, band, ice sculpture and caricaturist - I can hardly wait! As she is going on holiday on Thursday and will be away for her birthday I had to give her birthday card to her yesterday. I wasn't sure what to make - it had to be funny but I didn't want to put 60 on the front of it. I remembered this image I had bought from Redonkadoodles (used to be Redonkulous) and thought it would be a bit naughty but nice! Here it is:
I cut the gift box out in my photo editing software and then erased it from the image too. I then put the gift box on one of those springy things so it bounces around. Here is another view:
I coloured the image with Copics added Glossy Accents to his glasses and some Stickles to his teeth so they are really shiny IRL! The papers are Raspberry Road Watermelon patch. Used my Spellbinders Grand Nestie Ovals and Scalloped Ovals, SB circles and Edgeabilities. The sentiment I made on the computer I wanted to make some reference to it being a special birthday so thought this filled the bill. I made a matching box too but didn't photograph that but its exactly the same layout as the card. As I have said before my friends are not crafty in the least so they will definitely not be looking at my blog!
We are going to the Agricultural Show at Great Eccleston today with Dave's daughter and family. Should be good fun I remember taking my children when they were younger and had such a good time, the weather is certainly perfect for it!
Thanks for looking and have a great day whatever you are up to! Take care xx
