Maisie's birthday card

One of Hazel's best friends just had her 12th birthday yesterday and this is the card I made for her. They celebrated in style - by spending the whole of Sunday in a wet, muddy field at the 'Party in the Park' concert at Temple Newsam, Leeds, along with their other 2 friends Amber & Jack, and Maisie's family. They had an absolutely ''awwwwesome'' time so I'm told except both Hazel & Maisie were unfortunate enough to have their mobile phones pinched - neither of the phones were new, up to date ones, not worth anything - but you know girls & their phones lol.

Well, on to the card lol, the image is Whiff of Joy, I love this image as it works for so many occasions, coloured with copics & promarkers (am I the only person who seems to use a combination of both rather than one or the other lol) Papers, card, flower, & brads from stash (the purple 'girly' brad wasn't meant to be on the card but right at the last minute I pulled a petal off the flower and it was the last purple tinted one I had lol sooooo out came the brads hehe) Sentiment is printed from the computer.

Hope everyone's having a great week, I'm soooooo fed up of the rain, its driving everyone crazy as its too wet for the girls to go out to play so they're all stuck inside arguing over everything from the tv, the computer, the ps2...... you name it they've managed to argue over it :-( Honestly, I'm convinced that whoever decided 7 weeks holiday was a good idea has NEVER had kids lol

Finally, I made something :-)

Well, with college over and finished I thought I'd have had more time to craft and catch up on blogging - mmmm I hadn't bargained on my mojo taking a holiday and my computer throwing a tantrum and deleting EVERYTHING from the hard drive - all my college work, hazel's homework, digi stamps, images, photos, backing papers..... all gone :-(

Finally got a little inspiration and made these cards for the girls for school for the teachers, nothing elaborate but they were pleased. The little girl images were a download from Digistamp Boutique I can't remember where the other images were from I'll have to add those later. Backing papers from stash and downloads
