I'm Back!!

Helloooo Everyone - well, I'm back in blogland!

We've had our holiday - went away on 23rd May and got back last weekend - boy, those few days went so quickly! We went to Porthcawl in South Wales - we had a lovely time, but the weather wasn't brilliant - it was not warm enough for Andrew and Eleri to go in the sea, which they were a bit disappointed with, but we've promised to take them to the beach later in the summer.

And, since we've been home, we've had problems with our computer - the power lead went kaput! New lead arrived yesterday but it was my turn to do cricket teas yesterday - I find that so stressful! Over with for another year though, thank goodness!

Well, we've had two birthdays this week - my brother was 40 on Wednesday, and my father-in-law had his birthday yesterday.

So here's the card I made for my brother - I've used a Whiff of Joy Party Animals stamp, and coloured him with promarkers - I really need to practice colouring with black! I followed last week's Sweet Stop sketch but could not post it in time to enter the challenge. It was a very simple card, because my mojo has been missing for weeks now. The papers are Kay and Co.

I also stamped part of the image on a mat for the inside - I like the way this looks, and I think I'll do this more often.

I'm going to enter this in Lexi's Creations which is Father's Day or a Man's Card.

Well, must go, Richard wants the computer, and he's eating scones with cream and strawberries, and I really want one! Mmmmmmmm! See ya!

Love, Andrea xx

What a brilliant card - your colouring is awesome! I love the clean layout of this card and those embossed panels help the card not to be overly flat!

Thanks for joining us over at Lexi's Creations this fortnight in our 'Father's Day/ Card for a Male' challenge - good luck.

xo Lou Mac.

Hi Andrea, glad you had a good break. This is such a fab card for a man! The power lead for my laptop broke the other week too. xx
