Happy Birthday!

Hi everyone, this has been a good day....I've got a card made lol! I've really missed getting any cards made recently. All I seem to have done is my DT cards and commenting and trying to catch up with my favourite blogs. I'll need to try to get up to speed though as my daughter should get the keys to her first flat on Friday and I have a feeling I'm going to be busy with other things. I'm not really that good at painting....bit too slap dash lol! But I can strip wallpaper and paste it and I suppose I can clean and scrub. What fun....don't I lead an exciting life? And then I'm going to be having my other daughter's Labrador while they are on holiday. She's a lovely dog and no bother but.....and there's always a but isn't there? We live in the country and at the moment we're surrounded by lambs and calves and she's quite loopy. Not always easy to hang onto her lead but, fingers crossed, I've always managed so far. Luckily my Labrador doesn't need a lead and my Spaniel is so decrepit that she doesn't have any notion of going for a walk.

But enough waffle, I need to tell you about my card before I check out what DT commenting I need to do before I do my ironing!

I love this cute bear from Whiff of Joy and I think he's ideal for a birthday card for a child. I think he's good for a card for anyone actually but I've been trying to make some child cards for Catriona as with two littles ones she probably has more use for them than I do. Even my youngest nephew will be 15 this year.

I used:-
DP :- Paper Adventures - check and spotty paper and Doodlebug Designs.
Colouring :- Promarkers, Sakura clear glitter gel pen (on icing and spotty paper).
Sentiment :- Craftwork Cards.
Distress Ink in bundled sage round edges.
Buttons and glittery gems from stash.
I'm entering a few challenges with this card :-
Whiff of Joy :- Image and green, yellow and one other colour.
Sophisticat :- So Distressing.
ABC challenge :- S for sparkle.
Cute Card Thursday :- Touchy Feely - buttons, jewels and glitter - hope this is ok.
Create 4 Fun :- Circles.
Well I'm off to do something useful. I should probably get on with an 18th birthday card for my nephew. I got his present yesterday so I just need the card.
