Belated Birthday wishes

Sigh, with so much going on here, a little chap's Birthday totally passed me by - this is the card I made, then ran out to post:
I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card stock

- another discontinued 'Cute Squares' pre-coloured image by LOTV, die cut using a Nestie and backed with a larger sized one die cut from one of the last snippets of the icy blue card I love so much

- backing paper is from LOTV's 'Country Gent' paper pad. Wow, I adore this pad, and it goes brilliantly with LOTV's 'Vintage Boys' Art Pad (thank you so much Mary H!! xx)

- sentiment stamp by Elzybells, stamped with Memento 'Peanut Brittle' onto more icy blue card then trimmed into a little banner

- three white Card Candi dots, coloured with blue Pro Marker - a perfect match in real life but looking a bit washed out in the photo, harrumph :(

But, the good news is that the pipework is fixed and in the end (I hope it's the end!) the work was done from upstairs - negating the need to rip huge chunks of ceiling out. Happy bunny hops here right now :)

  10. Fab boy's birthday card Di. I think it's a cunning plan to send it late . . . as it will be an even bigger surprise and make's his birthday last longer.

    PS: Glad the leak is sorted now. Phew! If you stopped hitting the pipes with your lacrosse stick it would help!

  16. Lovely card Miss. Glad the ceiling is OK too Miss. I'm having a nervous breakdown here Miss. I promise to try and get to the playground this week Miss but may have to be excused - the sight of a baldy woman running round screaming may scare all the other playgrounders...LOL. xx
