Birthday Boy

Well very mixed weather here today one minute the sun is shining the next its pouring but that is Scotland for you.. I made this card yesterday for a teenager I used the sugar nellie stamp coloured in with prisma pencils, paper from Simply Create I think !! used cuttlebug embossing folder for the embossing of the red paper, candy from stash. I didnt make it to the girls just want to have fun day at The Papeterie yesterday but judging by Kaths blog looks and sounds like you all had a great fun filled day, maybe next time if there is a next time which Im sure there will be, I will be able to go. Off now to play bowls at Macduff that will probably be a very sociable day, well not so much for me because Im the driver but at least I will waken up tomorrow feeling better than the rest of them... catch up soon.

This is the 1st of my cards that I made today for a male who doesnt really have any hobbies and when I asked his mum what he liked to do she said nothing .. that is the problem.. so I thought this image of a male relaxing was quite appropriate image is from Karensdoodles coloured in with prisma pencils or though I wasnt really happy with the colouring of the trees, paper is from Papercrafts Elgin and the blue is from stash embossed with Birthday folder, candy from stash and used computer for sentiment., best crack on now loads more cards to do.


Morning allthough its nearly afternoon lots of card to make so a quick post and i will blog all my cards as i finish them busy colouring in an image for a male card always hard to find something appropriate for a man unless they are into sport.
Will have a peep round all the other blogs later.
Havent taken part in WOYWW for a few weeks so thought I would motivate myself today although Ive spent most of the morning looking for appropriate stuff for different cards.
