A Birthday Wish Challenge 136 at Aud Sentiments

Another grey, cold day today. No babysitting to do, so managed a few things around the house and a craft afternoon with a friend. Normally hubby and I have dinner with another couple but the man across the street has to move out with only about a week's notice so hubby was busy helping him. He said to go on my own, I got to the hotel and only our friend Doug was there as Joyce was unwell, so the two of us had dinner on our own! It was packed out which is a bit unusual for a Thursday night so the meal took a bit longer than normal so I had to skip choir practice. Hubby was still at the neighbour's house so ended up cooking for both of them and taking it over to his house. It's been a long day for them.
Anyway onto the challenge -  this fortnight at Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog our sponsor is Scrapper's Delight and I was able to play with this cutie.
Here is my card.....

Recipe:
SU Marina Mist cardstock for the cardbase
White card from stash
SU Melon Mambo cardstock
DP is from Rosie's Studio 6x6 paper pad - fun & giggles
Dies (will pop back with these as I already had these two cut and in my stash)

Sentiment is from SU - Remembering Your Birthday

Got Game - Challenge 4 at Crafty Girlz Challenge Blog

Welcome, I'm a bit late today with my post as I've been babysitting again. Little Halle likes to have my undivided attention, lol, so I don't get time to do much else. It's been another cold day with rain on and off so the fire has been going day and night today. Everyone has gone to bed and I realised I hadn't scheduled this post so onto the challenge!!!!
The challenge at Crafty Girlz is a monthly one and it is Anything Goes or use the theme for the month. This challenge it is: Summer Holidays.
Our sponsor is Stitchy Bear Stamps and I chose this fabulous image of a boy sitting down with a soccer ball. It could be either Anything Goes or the theme as he looks a little bored. Maybe the summer holidays are not living up to his expectations, lol.
