They are all grown up!!!

Oh my, where have all the years gone? Today, my youngest nephew started big school and so did my best friends little chap....they seem too young!!! I was nervous for them but they have both got on great! I am still waiting for my son to get back, he goes to school 20 miles away, he has special schooling as he has mild Autism, so he is on his way back now, hope he has got on ok as he moves up to another campus today.

Anyway, I have made another card (very rare for me lately...LOL) my sister asked for a card for a 60 year old man who loves gardening and fine wines and this is what I came up with.

A pal suggested this fab image from Di's Digi Downloads, thanks sweetie.x The papers are My minds Eye, and the cardstock is Stampin Up, I have coloured the image with copics and Promarkers, I always print my digi's on Stampin up whisper white or Very Vanilla as it is thin enough to go through my printer and is my fave card to use with alcohol markers.

The sentiment is Papertrey Ink, stamped in SU ink and punched out with my new Woodware jumbo word window punch I got from Stampeezee, it has 4 sizes of windows to chose from, I love it, the one I have used is huge!! not sure if they are on the website, you may have to ring the shop to get one!

I am entering this card into this weeks Stampin for the weekend challenge which is 'Anything goes' and Crafty Emma's store have the same theme for their first ever challenge

Anyway, have a great Thursday, I am still wallowing in dust, my bathroom is getting there, the underfloor heating and floor tiles are just going down and tonight I can have a bath as we have hot water....yay a novelty, even a place to wash is a novelty at the moment...LOL

Thanks for looking, please feel free to leave a comment as I love reading them.x
