Hi, as I sit at the computer it is bucketing down with rain outside. It's been quite a reasonable day today - how has it been in your part of the world? We went to church this morning and a lot of parks were already taken as there was some roller skating event in the square closest to the church. Adrian dropped me off and went down to the airport as he had been working there yesterday and when he handed his driver's licence over to security, he either wasn't given it back or he dropped it or something and they rang him up to tell him it was there. He was back in time for the start of the service. I have to be there a bit earlier as the choir has a short rehearsal before service. Home for lunch after a quick stop at the supermarket. Hubby had a sleep and then went off to help our son work on a car at our daughter's house. He must have called in to our son and DIL's on the way back and they were replacing some of their side fence. When he eventually came home, he had invited them back for tea. We were having corned silverside, mashed potato, carrots, peas and mustard sauce. They both love that so were happy to come but left not long after eating as they were really tired from working on the fence. I watched a bit of tv and then got stuck into making my card. Here is what I've used. The basecard is the other half of the blue card I used yesterday, the DP is from the pack of papers from Merci called "Boys". The image is a digi from Phindy's Place and was coloured with Copic Markers. I cut it into a square and mounted onto a piece of SU Real Red. I stamped the Birthday sentiment with SU Basic Brown ink onto another smaller square and backed it again with the red. I added some faux stitching to finish it off. The inside has a scrap of the DP and then a white topnote diecut for writing on.
I would like to enter this into the following:
