Lili of the valley for my grandad.

Morning everybody!!!!
It is my grandad's birthday today ad this is the card I made for him. It is quite simple and was a joy to make, I love it when cards happen like that!!!!!
The sun is shining at the moment which is nice as we had torrential rain here last night... didn't mind that either as it made the rowdy teenagers a few doors down having a bit of a get together quieten down a treat!!!!
I used watercolour paper again and I must say it comes out rather fabulous, the promarkers work a treat with it and don't bleed much at all and it leaves a lovely textured look and feel to the image.
I am attempting to be much more organised with my blog now after seeing my friends cool little lists at the botoom of what they used in their creation. I love this, it stops me thinking 'where is that from?' or 'what did they use there?'. A little enabling goes a long way!!! romfl!!!!!! so from now on my posts will have the little this creation used waffle like below!!!! with helpful little linkies!!! ( for enabling of course!!!!)
We are going for a womble over to the park again today for rock wall climbing and skateboarding!! Mo had great fun trying them out yesterday, sitting on his bottom on the skateboard and zooming down ramps!!
We are trying to squeeze in as much play with his little best friend as we can before he moves on wednesday, Mo is still rather upset about it all but the mummy's have been making plans for meeting up half way between our houses already!!! so he should be ok. There have been lots of tears and I am not at all sure how he will take the first day back at school without Callum there but I am sure he will be ok.....!!! I hope anyway!!! so.....
This creation used:
Promarkers- sandstone,tan,leaf green,pear green, pastel blue, honeycomb,gold,pastel beige, henna and cool grey 1 and 2.
Paper- The Langton watercolour paper ( not cold pressed) as advised by the fabby laila from lotv!!!
Computer generated sentiment- Harrington font.
Hope this helps a little peeps!!!
Thank you for popping in on me!!
Huggies Lou xxxxxx
