Well I'm having a well deserved rest today as I am once again in a lot of pain. For once I'm getting ahead of myself instead of playing catch up on card making. This card is for my Great Nephew who will turn 5 at the beginning of August. I can't believe he will be that old where has the time gone. I don't normally put cards on my blog until the occasion has passed, but as Ethan will only be 5 I don't think he will really be interested in what Great Auntie is up too on her blog.

This card is for the following challenges

Just had time today for a little play with one of my new stamps sets from Imagine That that Emma released yesterday. This is from the set Happy Days a very appropriate name I Love how the Birthday/ Anniversary/ Christmas etc sentiment fits into the side of the H.
Great for making quick and effective cards.

Pink & Brown

At last I am back where is the time going too? three weeks, wow! I think that has to be the longest I've been away from blogger land.Lots of things still going on at home, plus I've not been feeling too great migraines, pain etc. I've also had a lot of cards orders with some unusual requests which has kept me beavering away too. Then just when I thought I was back the pc died. Three days without a pc resulted in 50 Christmas cards made and it's only July yeah!!
The challenge at Spoon Full Of Sugar this week is Pink & Brown which is one of my favourite colour combo's.
Sentiment is from Imagine That and if you are anywhere near Upminster, Essex this Saturday folks Emma is releasing another 7 yes 7 sets of stamps. Guess where I will be heading.
