Spoonful of Sugar and Mojo Monday

Hope everyone has had a great bank holiday weekend?! I've had lots of fun-Saturday we had a lovely picnic with some friends we hadn't seen for ages and ages and had a looky round a car boot-found a gorgeous mirror that I'm going to do some bits and pieces to then will show you. Yesterday my nephew and his girfriend phoned me out of blue and said they were going to pop round which was lovely, hadn't seen them since my wedding in January. Then today which was hubbys birthday we went to the seaside which was lots of fun-Leo loved building sandcastles! How gorgeous has this weather been? Loving it! Above is piccy of Leo and Ian on the beach today!

Ok so onto the card....Over at A Spoonful of Sugar to celebrate being 1 yr old there is fab prizes to be won and the theme is celebration so I've made a birthday card with one of my gorjuss girls. I also followed the sketch over at Mojo Monday, I love their sketches! I used my new nesties too-I love them lots:) I actually forgot to take a pic of the inside so I may add one tomorrow if I remember, but it's basically just decorated with off cuts from the front and a label nestie to add a greeting to.

Materials: Basic Grey wisteria paper, Bazill bling cardstock, Sugar Nellie stamp gorjuss girl coloured with promarkers (aubergine, amethyst, lilac, olive green, magenta, ivory, blush, rose pink, and blossom), Prima flowers, nestie, distress inks (weathered wood and dusty concord) and paper lace.

Thanks for stopping by and for any comments you might leave-very much appreciated!
