sunflower day

well today i am showing a birthday card i made for a great aunt, who loves flowers and her garden. over on the high hopes challenge the theme this week is "zigs and zags" ~this stamp is one of my favourite ones and is used a lot!! used the fab sketch on papertake weekly ( both links to these challenges can be found on my side bar under challenges)
used high hopes stamp aunt marges garden,magnolia stitching stamp, quickutz wording die, chipboard tag, flower, rickrack ribbon and gems from my stash. finished with glitter.

here is a close up of the image
well while i was making this card lewis (my 5 year old, who is home from scholl with the worst cough ever) asked if he could make a card like mummy, so he has made this card for nanna who has a birthday next week,so we looked at the childrens callenge over on hannah and zoes blog http://hannahzoecraftymonkeys.blogspot.com/ ~which the theme is "touchy feely" #so lots od embellishments that you can touch ~thin lewis has managed that!!! i cut out him some paper and put it on the card then he gathered some bits and i left him to it!!(when you have just turned 5 years old you do not need mummys help!!! so i was told)
lewis used two very touchy sunflowers, squiggy hearts,domed plastic "happy birthday",very glittered star,and some birthday ribbon all from mummy`s stash. he is going to rite inside today ~now the glitter has dried!!

hope you all have a sunflower day, byeeeeeeeee for now xx (and from lewis) xx

You and Lewis have made two gorgeous cards. I love the garden stamp on your card and the sunflowers on Lewis' card. I hope he soon will recover from his coughing.
Here it's snowing even more. Because of all the snow around our houses the garbage car has decided it can't empty our bin (it goes for all the neighbours as well). Thanks to all the snow we now have to carry the carbage to the nearest road where the truck can stop. Hurray!!!

Have a great day, both you and Lewis.

Hugs, Kristin :)
