Another sunny day...

... yay!!!!  Its my eldests 13th Birthday today and we've had sunshine - I think its only the second or third time it hasnt snowed or rained on his birthday - lol.  So after a bit of retail therapy at the MetroCentre spending his money on a skateboard he went out to play on it for all of 2 minutes - hmmmm - ah well its his money - we'll try and get to one of the local skate parks this week and see if that encourages him a little.    (I'm not going to blog his card as tbh I'm not that happy with it - think a bit of panic has set in lol - he seemed to like it though).

It's also Ians brothers Birthday tomorrow he has reached the big five oh, and there was a little party for him last night - not sure if he's opened his cards yet, I hope so 'cos I'm just about to blog his card:

I've used a great Bugaboo image coloured with promarkers and sentiment that came with the image.  I used my new Silhouette to cut out the 50  (brave I know!) and matted this onto a die cut star that I already had.  The dp is kaisercraft and the paper, image & sentiment have been matted onto yellow bazzil.

I would like to enter this into:

Catch the bug challenge - anything goes.
Simon says stamp challenge - Happy Birthday.
Cards for Men - april fool

While my mojo is with me I also made this card for a couple of challenges:

I've had this image for a while it was a freebie from  Pink Gem designs.  (Thanks Sue x)Again the image is coloured with promarkers, and was lovely to colour in.  The dp has been matted onto Green bazzil with flowers and card candy added from my stash and then some fern leaves punched from the same green bazzil.

I would like to enter this into:

I love promarkers - your favourite colours (love the green and pink combo which I've used a few times in the past.
Papertake weekly - anything goes
Passion for promarkers - fantasy
A gem of a challenge - animals

Right, think thats me up to date for now I've another card using one of Janeys images 
but I need 3 orange pearls (or similar - and I havent got that colour - gah!!) not to worry going to a crafty fair on Saturday so hopefully I'll pick some up there - like I need an excuse to go - lol.

Enjoy whats left of the weekend.  Thanks for looking.
