Birthday Boy.

Good Afternoon All, I hope you are all keeping well, We got a hosepipe ban in our area last week, and since then it hasn't stopped raining, so another damp dull day today. Anyway the postman arrived with this new memory box corner die, so ive used it on this card, The image is from Hangler I coloured him with promarkers, papers are from Papermaina ive had them ages and not used them, spellbinders labels four, corner dies from Memory box, ribbon, buttons and sentiment from stash.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges.

I have read your profile and am proud that you are continuing to do cardmaking through your illnesses, when many people would discontinue doing something they enjoyed.

I think your creation is awesome and you should also enter it into another challenge which is The Crafty Pad, Challenge #166, Bounty of Buttons.

I am going to follow your blog and get some great cardmaking inspiration.

Take care and God Bless,
Joanie

Hi Kevin, thats one stunning card, I love those papers but your image is just so beautifully coloured to. Isnt it always the same, it always rains when you dont want it to, lets hope the hosepipe ban doesnt last to long, they will probably say its the wrong type of rain. hugs Shirleyxxx
