Summer Breeze Birthday Card

Morning everyone, a nice bright day today so at least it will be better standing on the edge of the football pitch, so I must hurry up and get ready as I still have sooooo much still to do before I get out of the door.

It has been a busy week this week as I have been busy trying to get orders done so haven't had much time for crafting for myself plus Brian hasn't been very good.  His speech has deteriorated significantly and he has been quite dizzy and sick so we are back off to the doctors tomorrow as I am concerned that his blood pressure may now be too low with all the medication and may need adjusting.  Anyway, I will feel better once he has been checked over.

So onto my card. where I have used the fabulous image Summer Breeze by Barbara at Forgotten Scraps, isn't she just adorable.  I have used the sketch from Sketch Saturday and my DP's are a mix of Basic Grey and Stampin Up.  The flowers have been cut out using Marianne Dies which I have added a Craftwork Card Candi to them and a rose from my stash (not at all as lovely as the gorgeous flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, but it was the right size).  The sentiment is a Bizzy Becs one.

I am entering this into the following challenges.

Passion for Promarkers - Sugar Rush
Polkadoodles - Flower Power
Allsorts Challenge - Card for a Teenager
Sketch Saturday - Sketch
Little Miss Muffet - Designer Papers

Well thanks for popping over, have a great day and I will see you later on in the week.


  1. Hi Max

    A really super creation and just ideal for a teenager, they are always so difficult to create cards for.

    Hope hubby is OK, it must be such a worry for you.
