Happy Birthday!

Hi Everyone!  I hope you have all had a great weekend.

We have had further wild and wet weather here but it didn't stop the boys and I heading off for a long weekend away for Rod's Birthday.  One fine day (Saturday) out of three wasn't bad we went for a walk, explored a little and the boys also had a swim and a bike ride later in the day before we all settling down with a good book for the night.   On Sunday we had a lovely catch up with some of my cousins who we hadn't seen for some years and we all enjoyed a yummy lunch at Babalou Restuarant at Kingscliffe.


Here's a picture of hubby posing for the camera after just being for a swim.

Prior to leaving for our weekend away I once again had some fun with my Gelli Plate creating some more grungy male oriented backgrounds so I could make a quick card for hubby with lots of Unity Stamps and Dew Drops too.



My monochromatic 80th Birthday Easel Card is for an order I received from one of my regular customers through the shop I sell my cards at.  It is using one of the prints I showed the other day, which incorporated the Medallion Stamp and Splash Inks.


I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Lexi's Creations - #84 Monochromatic


Here is a general Birthday Card using another piece of my first ever Gelli Plate Print, which was done using the Splash Inks and Large Bubble Wrap. 


I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Created with Love - #30 Bright and Cheery
Pan Pastels UK - #8 Happy Birthday




For this card I used a White Posca Pen to draw circles around the imprint of the bubble wrap and my sentiment is stamped onto a piece of Blue Metallic Painted Cardstock I had in my stash.



That's about it for me today, I had better be off, I have lots of commenting to catch up on as well as some more cards to make.  Have a great week everyone and thanks so much for dropping by!
