4-tee-th birthday!!!

Morning Peeps!!

I hope you are all having a great day. I am home with a sick little Mo. He has a virus and gastroenteritis caused by all the icky stuff in his nasal tract going down into his tummy :( I feel so sad for him. He was up and down in pain and with high temp during the night but managed to sleep in until 6:30am...I however was on mummy worry mode and hardly slept a wink so I resemble something out of the waking dead this morning!! Mo hasn't eaten anything for the last 2 days so I have just made up some cupcakes and they are baking away, I figure I can tempt his with a plain little vanilla cupcake because he loves those!
Its a wierd feeling not being at work today though, its feels like I am a fraud because there is nothing wrong with me!! does anyone else ever feel bad like that when they have to call in work to say you can't go because your mini peeps are ill? 

So onto the card!!! My mum ordered " a big 40th birthday card with a cool golfer please" a couple of weeks ago, so out came the 8x8 cards, a bit of kenny K and some'man' papers!! romfl!! The little golf ball is made with my little circle punch and then embossed with my sizzix dots folder and rolled around a marble to get it 3D, the tee is just a bit of happy Lou snipping hoping it looks like a tee!!!

The image is Golfer from Kenny K , coloured up with my promarkers and then I distressed all around the edges with my vintage photo distress ink,its very manly!! lol!!!!

I am popping this over in the challenge on the Here Come the boys challenge blog. Its a bingo one and I chose....Patterend paper, distressing and image and the I love promarkers challenge blogs Anything goes challenge. the promarkers I used were...
skin- blush, sunkissed pink and coral.
Greens- pear green and olive green.
browns- sandstone, cocoa and burnt sienna.
shoes- pastel beige and khaki.

So I have one little boy all sickly and one little furball princess with a sore eye to take to the vets too, then I might get a little craftying done later!!

Thank you for popping in on me!
huge hugs Lou xxx
