Jolly Clown Jamboree

Hi,

Thank goodness the weather has improved, as it's the start of the school holidays - the next 6 weeks are looking rather busy for son and i, as we are members of RHS, National Trust and RSPB and you can always rely on these fabby organisations to lay on loads of good things for the kids - starting with tomorrow when we are going to an Arboretum, where a CBeebies programme is going to be.

For todays card i've used a very old PB stamp from 1995, it's that early that the code is 657H !!, i picked it as it makes a great childs birthday card and as one of son's friends is going to be 4 soon, it was ideal. I so love the papers i've used to : Echo Park - Little Boy, as they are so versatile and easy for boys, especially as they are double sided and a couple of them have the page divided into 4, so you get 6x6 designs, brilliant.

What a fun card! I'm sure he'll love it! I think it's wonderful that you've used such an old stamp. To many old stamps go unloved even thought they are still as wonderful as they were when they were new.
Blessings Bernie
