have a splendid day

today i am showing a birthday card i have made for one of lewis`s friends ~who has his party this evening ~oh what joys ~a few hours in a fun play area with lots of 6/7 year old boys , shouting, running and getting very hot!! great time to catch up with the other mums with a coffee!!

used the fab sketch over on FRIDAY SKETCHERS #121

also the challenge on ~ CARDS FOR MEN #20 ~ AUTUMN ~ well autum for me is the grass going back to green, cool blue skies and beautiful coloured leaves on the trees ~to the "boys" it means the end of the cricket and the beginning of our football season!!

used papermania papers, ellzybells stamp, american crafts word stamp, some chipboard shapes and number ...and no glitter anywhere!!

hope you are enjoying this autumn day ~ we have been having such gorgeous weather ~ clear blue sky but not so warm ~just love this time of year!! (maybe beacause it is my birthday month??)

Hi Vannessa, thank you for your lovely comment on my blog, I have been taking a look at lots of your cards today which have provided me with loads of inspiration for Christmas. I love those easel cards too, I wish I could work out how you do them. Some gorgeous stamps you have used ~ I hope you have managed to replace your machine, I loved that comment from your son ~ hopefully you were a good girl hehe
