Happy Birthday - Teenage Boy

Hi there everyone, can't believe it Tuesday.   To be honest I am really not sure what happened to my plans yesterday.  I had the above card already to share and then suddenly it was late in the afternoon so thought I might as well wait until today.  Phone calls, housework, catching up with friends and being with the family is what happened.

Anyways, I can honestly say that I am feeling well again.....Merry smiles.  On the weekend I got outside and attacked the weeds in the garden and saw how dry everything is.  So have plans of ordering 4 cubic metres of mulch....the thought just tires me.  I also tidied up my desk from all the cardmaking leading up the markets the weekend before.  I have actually created three cards but can only show you this one as the other two are for my Design Team challenges over at Stamping Vacation.  Remember to go check them out and post a photo of your card for a challenge to be in the running for a $25 voucher to 7 Kids.

Now my card I have made this for friends sons birthday this week.....yes, same family as the 11yo girl last week.  I started with a Blue Edge Crafts white card then used a strip of Far and Away - Take Flight paper.  If you look close the green marks are planes. To the bottom half of the card I used SU Kiwi Kiss which I embossed with the Branches folder.  SU Riding Hood Red is used to back the image and greeting.  The image 'Pip Chillin' from 'Passion for Stamps I coloured with my watercolour pencils and aqua brush.  Then used the SU Not Quite Navy inkspot to smudge around the edges.  The greeting sticker is from the Sticker Store.  The sketch for this card is the August Craftmad Card Sketch.

Almost forgot my exciting news.  Yesterday, I was lucky enough to receive a pack of 12 Aquamarkers from Letraset.  They have sent them to me to have a try and see what I think.  Yes, I have had a quick little play but hope to have more time this morning to try them out and I will show you what I have been up to.

But there is more....... I will be having a giveaway real soon and some Aquamarkers will be involved. :-)
