An early morning post...

... blah!! up this early on a Sunday - hubby has gone to work and he is soooo noisy so we are all up, ah well can get the grocery shop out of the way as soon as Mr A opens and then seen what the boys want to do today (although I've noticed its starting to rain again!!)

I just wanted to quickly blog my brothers birthday card:

The image and sentiment are Bugaboo and is very apt for my brother (he is totally bonkers!!). I have coloured it with promarkers and added glossy accents to his glasses. The dp is cut from 12 x 12 American Crafts sheet then I have added ribbon and plain red and blue card from my stash.

I would like to enter this into:

Crafty Creations - boyz to men
Totally Gorjuss - All about boys
Sweet Stampin' challenge - one for the boys
Allsorts - Free & Easy

Thanks for looking


(p.s. thanks for your kind comments re my colouring - while the boys are having their xbox time today I'm going to be checking out some tutorials and having a little practice :-) ) xx
