Spots and stripes Birthday.

Good morning all! It's the weekend and boy am I looking forward to a few days off! I've aready been busy this morning getting some dreaded household chores out of the way, washing, cleaning etc before I head off out this afternoon to my friend Jules Owl Class at 2! I haven't been to one of her saturday classes since before christmas, so I'm really looking forward to it!

Onto today's card. I made this a while back for a male friends birthday. The colours turned out a little girlier than I had anticipated, but at the end of the day at least there was no pink involoved! Lol!

Quelle suprise... I've decorated the inside!


CS: SU Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Choc Chip

Papers: Nursery Suite Speciality

Stamps: Afterthoughts, On a Pedestal, Seeing Spots (Retired)

Tools: SU Stampamajig, Sponge Daubers

Misc: Stampin Markers, Crumb Cake ink pad

Not too bad me thinks, considering I break out in a sweat at the thought of making a man's card!

Have you checked out this weeks LIM challenge. The theme this week is 'All White'. Might have to get my thinking cap on for this one! Oh well I like a bit of a challenge!

Well thanks for stopping by! I hope you all have a lovely weekend and manage to fit a spot of crafting in somewhere!

Hugs, Victoria ~x~
