Happy Birthday

I Stamped the Forever Friends teddy on white card and then I coloured him with chalks.  After using an oval die to cut out my patterned paper to make an aperture, I then cut stamped and cut out the present in matching paper before adding it to the image. I punched out flowers to make a border that matched the ribbon on the present. The card was then finished by matting and layering in matching colours.

I think I can say that we've definitely made the most of this Bank Holiday weekend.  My Hubby and I had another lovely walk this morning. We managed to walk seven and a half miles/12K today.  Needles to say, we've spent the rest of today relaxing!  The swans and their signets were close to the bank today so I managed to get a couple of photographs on my phone:

I had a lovely surprise when we got back when I found that I'd had an 'Honorable Mention' on the 'Merry Monday' blog challenge for the card that I entered yesterday (Bare Trees).  I'd like to say a big thank you to them for the mention.
Wishing you all a lovely evening and I look forward to catching up with some blog reading over the next week :)
