Getting a Head Start

Hello, how nice have the last 2 weekends been!?! Makes such a nice change to have some good weather at the weekend instead of when I'm stuck in work lol. Missed most of last weekend in bed with a migraine but was out yesterday as my Dad was moving his boat down from up by widnes to Liverpool and he wanted us to take pictures. So we went up to take pictures of them going through the lock onto the river, then we headed to Riverside Drive and sat by the river and waited for them to come past, then went and met them at the marina. Was such a nice day for it.

Anyways got chance to get a couple of cards done today, so here is the first one (the second is my design team card for this week so you'll have to wait for Friday for that one lol) but it means that I've got a couple of the birthday cards for the next few weeks done (still a couple to get done - hopefully will have some time over the next few long weekends). Anyways this card is for my Mum's cousin who is going to be 40 in a few weeks lol. Kerry of Ladybug Crafts Ink had made a card using the numbers sitting on Magnum's hand and it gave me the idea of using them as balloons - I stamped the string and knot of the balloon stamp and then added the numbers and a few fineliner lines. His other hand looked a bit empty so I added the cake - after all what's a birthday without cake lol :)


Supplies: 'Add-on Magnum', 'Magnum Add-ons' & Sentimental Numbers Stamps by Ladybug Crafts Ink, Papers by Slice and Frances Meyer, Sugar-Coating by Doodlebug, Card by DCWV
Extras: Gems, Promarkers, Copics, Glossy Accents

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges...
