Daddy's Shoes

Hi,

I hope you all had a lovely Easter - besides seeing 'Cinderella' at the Mayflower theatre on Saturday, ours was quiet (something to do with the weather, it rained most of the time !!). We are now nearly through the first week of H's Easter holidays - he did a Lego fun afternoon, Wednesday, yesterday was a Peter Rabbit trail and today he has gone on an adventure day with his bike and it's my birthday today also, so it will be lovely to just chill out with my dog Clio.

I made today's card for my other half Alan, whose Birthday was on Tuesday.


Image : Penny Black - 'Daddy's Shoes / 30-360 / 2016' - this is one that Mo Manning did (and I so love her images, but only prefer the stamps of course)
Papers : Carta Bella - 'Boy Oh Boy'
Arrows : Whiff Of Joy - 'Arrows'
Sentiment : Presscut - 'Happy Birthday Die'
Twine in buttons : K & Co - 'Cool Blue And White Butcher Twine'

The Challenge I Would Like To Enter Is : 

Simon Say's Stamp - where they are celebrating their 9th Birthday - 'Happy Birthday'

Papers are : My Minds Eye - 'Blink Of An Eye'
Shape: Go Kreate - 'Frilly #10'
Flowers : Penny Black Die - 'Layered Flowers'
