Summer birthday card!!

Oh its so dreary tonight, wet and gloomy! so I have just been out to my craft room and spent 10mins cheering myself up with a summery feeling birthday card for a dear friend. She is such a sweet and lovely lady and its her birthday on the 30th July. Its a little mini step card, 3" wide!! awwww.

The gorgeous little beach huts are a freebie from sj's musings. I saw them on caz's blog ( if you don't follow caz already, go and take a peek she is a whizz of a crafty girl!!) and had this little idea for them!!!

I coloured them up all pastelly and cut them out. The cute little girl with the swim ring is Tiddly Inks going swimming, coloured up all summery and cute!!! I even used glaze on her shades!!!! the sea is some adhesive water paper that my friend Fi gave me over a year ago and the clouds are some woodware fluffy stuff, I as quite ginger with it today as I wanted a whispy kind of cloud!! the cute little sunshine 'happy birthday' sentiment I made on my computer on a punched circle and chalked it yellow, a bit of glaze and job done!!! ( its still drying!!). I think this is so cute!!!
well,I am off to warm myself up with a hot vimto and get ready for Ghost whisperer ! it is on at 9pm and I lurve it so a quiet night for me!!!
Hugs Lou xx
