Happy Birthday Son


Hi peeps,
Well as promised here is the card I made for Simon, who as you will probably guess is a fishing fan lol, you should see the trophies in his bedroom, lovely but the dusting!!!!!,
I've used one of Di's gorgeous digi images here and I've printed it off on water colour paper with my Kodak printer which is fab as the ink didn't run at all, it works for copics too,
Had a change with the colours on  this one, been doing a lot of pinks lately, didn't think he'd appreciate that though !
ingredients:
papers~ BG Marjolaine pad,
fancy shape ~ older nestie, think they've re vamped this lately but this was from before they were famous, he he,
Fiskers border punch,
fish charm ~ the works,
string ~ The craft range,
Eyelets ~ stash
I've distressed the edges of my papers but missed out the sewing didn't think he'd do that either lol,

Oh well that's it for now,
All my Dt's are fortnightly now so It's taking some getting used too lol, but should see you soon, he he

Helloooooooo my lovely mad friend, where have you been? I've had the kettle on ready wating for you to come and help decorate and then organise my craft room, I even splashed out and bought Sainsbury's choc chip muffins which obviously I've forced myself to eat lol.

Happy belated Birthday to Simon, love your card and I'm sure he did too. The Kodak printers are fab aren't they, no smudges and smears with them
love n hugs Mandy xx

Oh so cute Liz! Love the soft colors and such an adorable stamp! I really like the bottom cut out area, it makes it look like wavey water! Sorry I haven't been by lately - been busy working on new projects for The Lime Light! Promise to get by regularly again! Hugs, J:)
