Today is my daughter's boyfriend's birthday, and she asked me to make a card using this lovely Lili of the Valley stamp. Isn't this little lad just adorable? I put glossy accents on the red racing car, but the photo isn't good enough to pick that up - and irl the colours are brighter, but you get the picture!
I distressed round the edges with Broken China, which is rather blotchy, but nothing ventured, nothing gained, and I will just have to practise.
The fab sketch was from last week's challenge, so I've missed the deadline, but what the heck!
This week I have mostly been cleaning the Manor, as it's the holidays, huzza! I have several bags of stuff for Oxfam, all my son's dvds and books are in boxes in the garage, and I have cleared and cleaned all my food cupboards! I am so impressed with myself!!!
The downside is the smell of detergent that hangs around me - not my fave perfume!
Hopefully tomorrow I can settle down in my nice, tidy spare room and listen to the cricket and do some crafting. About time, too!
luv, Mags x
