with love on your birthday

made this pastel birthday card for a great aunt (my father asked me to make it ~and wanted a simple card ~"not lots of flowers" etc)

followed the fab sketch by deb over on :~




I LOVE PROMARKERS#58 ~GO DOTTY ~used baby pink, buttercup ,saffron, tea green, pastel blue and warm grey.



all links on my left side bar

used sandylion and papermania papers, kanban lady stamp, coloured with promarkers, kanban wording stamp, quickutz photo corner and flower circle dies, various ribbons from my stash, finished with a little glitter.

hope you are having a wonderful weekend ~when will all this sun hide behind some clouds??~ cannot remember when we last had some rain!!!

so sorry i have not been around but my neck has been playing up again and to sit at the computer just hurts sooooooooo much!!..and those tablets from the doctor are making me feel so ill!! (cannot understand why my doctor has not sent me for an xray!!)

anyway hope to be back blogging soon.
