Bright and Breezy
I think that 'bright and breezy' is a good description of the weather and my mood right now. It's Friday afternoon, the sun is shining but still a bit chilly, and work is over for another week, with the weekend to look forward to.
Continuing on with the general 'brightness', here's a card that I made using unusually bright colours for me (I am much more of a pastel gal as you have probably realised if you are a regular visitor to my blog!)
However, on this occasion, I needed to make a card for a 1 year old boy........hmmm...little boys / bright colours......the perfect excuse I think!
So I decided to stamp up one of my lovely Humphrey stamps, which was particularly gratifying, as I don't know that I will get too many opportunities to use this little fella.
I coloured everything nice and brightly with my Spectrum Noirs and, as luck would have it found a paper which really matched nicely amongst my Forever Friends 6x6 pads, which very rarely get to see the light of day.
Once all that was done I didn't think it really needed anything else, so I have kept the rest of the card very clean and simple with the main image simply mounted on to one backing paper.
So...on to the lovely challenges for today:
Sister Act - Anything Goes
Come and Get It - Kids Birthday Cards
Cupcake Craft - Cute and Cuddly
Cutie Pie - Clean and Simple

Well that's me done for today. Time to get ready for a lovely Thai meal for a family celebration later on.
Have a lovely, restful Friday evening everyone.
