Happy Birthday Freddie!!!

Saturday 14 July 2012

Good morning campers!

I have an extremely busy weekend planned, I'm hopefully going to fit in some crafting this morning but then we're off to Banbury for the day to see my hubby's family (yawn!) and then out for dinner with friends. Then tomorrow Ben's playing tennis in the morning (I'll be crafting...), then we're going to Lakeside for lunch with friends (and I may try and squeeze in some shopping) and then we're going to some other friends' house to gatecrash a roast dinner party they're having. We're gatecrashing because we're not eating, not because they don't like us... (I hope).

Phew...I'm getting worn out even thinking about all that!

Anyway onto this week's card for Sketch Saturday, we have another absolutely fabulous sketch for you this week, I'm loving all those stars! Here it is:

and here is my Design Team entry. This card is for the very cute Freddie who has just turned 1. (although I've just realised I didn't put '1 Today' on the card, how remiss of me).  The image is a Bugaboo one which I think is very cute. I went for some nice bright colours but was held back a bit by not being able to use bright pink - as it was for a boy. The card didn't look right with the original patterned paper I had down the left side so I changed it for the one that's there now regardless of the pink in it! I think it's just about acceptable for a boys card though.

I coloured the little turtle with my copics - here he is...

and a big thank you to Kirei for lending me her star punches and to Sandra for lending me the star die. I lack a bit in the stars department clearly!

This week's challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp - pop on over and have a look as there is a prize on offer.

Thanks for looking!
