Good morning. I must apologise for going AWOL - I was away for a funeral last week and then the weekend was full of preparations for my youngest son's birthday yesterday. In fact, it's his birthday card that I'm showing you today:
The mushrooms come from the Everybunny stamp set I'm so obsessed with at the moment. It's an Easter set but you can use it for so many other things! I've seen this punning sentiment lots of times before and thought it would be perfect for my jokey son who really is a fun guy! I made mine on the computer and printed it off onto Very Vanilla card stock which I used to form a banner across the card.
Here's a close-up of those fabulous mushrooms - I stamped the outline of them and coloured them in with markers. You may notice a couple of score lines underneath - I love to add these to ground an image. I chose Confetti White card stock to add interest to the design and punched a decorative hole through the tiny bit of banner on the left.
Here's what you'll need to make this card:
INK: Basic Grey
CARD STOCK: Confetti White, Very Vanilla
OTHER: Markers, scoring tool, cropadile or hole punch, stampamajig

My son had a lovely birthday opening presents, playing outside in the surprisingly warm sunshine and, later, eating out at a wonderful buffet-style restaurant called Red Hot. You can help yourself at the buffet as many times as you like at this place and you certainly don't leave hungry! My two sons have the greatest difficulty with self-restraint and complained they had little room left for pudding. "I know - drink some of your lemonade," suggested my youngest son. "You might burp and that would make a bit of space!" We hushed him at once but he was later heard to say: "There we go! Space made!"
Thanks for dropping in today and a special thank you to all those who have left lovely messages for me about my absence last week. I really do appreciate it. I'll be back tomorrow with a little watercolouring - hope to see you then,
