Relax and (sun)shine

Hi and welcome back to my blog. Today I managed to finish a card for a couple of challenges. The first one is Basic Grey that had a colour challenge of pink, blue and cream. I used these beautiful papers from the "eskimo" line. This is by far my fav line from BG. I used a stamp from house mouse and added a sentiment from imaginisce. It fits the theme "on the beach" for the house mouse challenge blog. I also used a sketch from get sketchy and "layering" from ABC challenge.

I wasn't too thrilled about how the card turned out, but I'm quite happy with the positioning of the image. It kind of looks like the mouse is sailing on the patterned paper. If you squint a lot, lol.

I also got some more goodies from a cherry on top that I ordered during a Thanksgiving sale. It was well needed since I got a mail today that made me quite sad. No reason to get jealous about the goodies though, I'm not keeping all of it and some of it I've already put in a candy box :) I just need to get myself together and organize the darn thing. I'm planning on having it done by my birthday and think I will have a special prize for those that send me a card for my 30:th b-day. I'm all alone in this town with my fiancée - no family or friends so it gets lonely on b-days. Maybe you will cheer me up? ;) More of that later. First I need to get totally well and start on my DT commitments. Ta ta for now.

Hi Katarina, Hope you're feeling better soon x It would be great to send you a card for your 30th birthday - let me know when it is and I'll sendy you one :)
It's lovely to receive handmade cards, especially when they're from abroad - I still have the card you sent me with the blog candy (and the envelope too!!) as it has come such a long way to make me happy.
Take care

He's so cute and I love how you have him on the wavy paper! Great card, hon! ooooo...I'd LOVE to send you a birthday card. I remember how totally devastated I was on my 30th birthday!! And when I turned 40, I was wearing diapers on my head with tombstones on the table and I was laughing about it. LOL! Let me know when your birthday is! hugs!
