Birthday barbecue!



I was honoured to be chosen as this month;s Biggest Fan at Bugaboo Stamps! I won some gorgeous images and got the chance to be one of their guest designers so I chose this week's lovely sketch for my card.

Today is my son Deaglan's 30th birthday. We had a wee party last night and it took me a while getting out of bed this morning, not from a hangover as I don't drink, but just exhaustion! Its hard work getting the house ready for a party lol. So HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAGLAN!  Deaglan has just done his garden up, barbecue, swing bed, artificial grass with a little putting area and gorgeous seating. So I thought this barbecue image would be perfect for him.
Today is also my lovely friend LISA JANE'S birthday, hope you have a lovely day Lisa!! I also have one of my customer's getting married today and would you believe its flipping raining here this morning!!!

For my card I used
Papers - DCWV
Image - Bugaboo
Embellishments - burger, sunshine, die cut letters, circle die, ribbon, staples and faux stitching. I made a wall template and chalked it behind my image and drew some grass and added some chalk clouds.
Medium - coloured with promarkers and chalks
I would like to enter this into
Raise the Bar - cloudy skies
Fat Pages and cards with attitude - anything goes/faces
Aud Sentiments - spring/summer colours
Whimsey Stamps - punches or die cuts
Incy Wincy - digis only
Joanna Sheen - someone special (my son)
Have a lovely day

Hi, Pinky. I'm able to catch up with you at last :) Your Deaglan is almost as old as my son - He turned 30 last month! and a card like this would be perfect for him as well as he likes cooking! Such a cute creation! Best wishes to Deaglan and hugs to you, Miria xx

Lovely fresh and bright colours Pinky.

Don't think we could risk a barbie, it's wither perishing cold, raining or even worse hailing. Would soon put a damper on the charcoal me thinks.

Have a good weekend.

And of course I forgot to say Happy Birthday Deaglan, one of my baby boy's (he'd have a fit if he heard me call him that)will be the same age the same day as your Birthday.
