James' Birthday Card


Crikey, it's the 1st May already...where on earth did April go?

We seem to have had so much going on recently and boy am I looking forward to the bank holiday weekend and the additional day off work. I hope we get some nice sunny weather so that we can get out in the garden and maybe catch some rays! Probably only in my dreams!

Today I'm sharing the card I made for James' birthday last weekend...I spotted these Bird Brain images over on Jo's blog and was so taken with them I had to nip over to From the Heart and purchase a few. My boy does like a bottle of cider (or two) so this image was perfect for him...thank you Jo for the inspiration!

Digital Image: From the Heart (Birdbrain Chick)
Digital Design Papers: Sweet Shoppe Designs (Pretty Little Things) and Bella Gypsy (Friend)
Colouring Medium: Promarkers & Smooth White Card
Card Stock: SU! (Crumb Cake)
Embellishments: Button and Dental Floss from my craft stash and bathroom cupboard
Sentiments: Created on the Computer using 'Cinnamon Cake' font

I hope you enjoy the long weekend. Fingers crossed for some good weather but they have said to expect some frost!

Oh Donna, this card is perfect! I love it :)
Love the papers and layout, and your colouring is always spot on. I bet James loved it too.
Happy Belated Wishes to him from me and thank you for the mention xx

P.S: Birdbrains are like Pringles, you can't just have one, lol, so I guess i'll be seeing more by you soon! ;)
