Good morning all - I hope you are both well and happy? We are all good and ready for a new day! I've got a parent help morning at school today and we will be putting together all sorts of things for my gardening club that I run - I managed to get a grant and we bought water butts and a new raised bed system and a three section composting unit and some fruit trees. Me and two other mums managed to put the fruit trees in today and after this weekend we really will be ready to get going on the Spring gardening! woo hoo.
Todays card is for my nephew Luke who will be 10 next week - I've used a gruffies image - Lukes dad has a motorbike - or used to - and so I thought this would be quite appropriate!
I've followed a sketch from the Friday sketch challenge and coloured my image with promarkers.. I've added faux stitching around the edges for the house mouse challenge - hoping to get this linked up in time this week! The papers are a combination of papermania and the prima engraver pad. The die is a Crafty sentiments (Summer-Doily) crafty cutter - love that one - you'll be seeing more of that in the very near future! The happy birthday has been cut with dies from Joanna Sheen - can't remember the brand. the stamping of the name and numbers was done using claritystamp. Here's the sketch I followed.
