Gift from my wonderful son

My mothers day present from my wonderful son was some Lili of the Valley stamps, he gave me the money and said I could get what I wanted but thought I needed some more boy stamps which he was probably right about. This is one of the 7 I got with the money he gave me, I did put a little too but only a couple of pond, and he said his dad had to match it so I got some high hopes stamps too.

One of my neighbours is 40 in a couple of weeks so thought I'd use this cute stamp for his card. He would so love to be able to do this but his wife and 2 daughters keep him on his toes and no slinking off for snoozes under trees for him. He does escape sometimes as he got an allotment a couple of years ago, and he manages to go fishing once in a while, he must be happy though as I've never heard him complain, well not much anyway.

The layout I used is Lili of the valleys challenge , hope I'm in time as I forgot to write the end date on my notes , I'll find out when I try to enter, but either way it was a fun layout to do.

I have decided to enter my card into a couple ,maybe more challenges so here goes.

Fun fairy friday by Prairie fairy have a challenge to make an easel card. I am so getting into these they somehow just seem bigger than an ordinary square card somehow, though I am still working on getting the stopper thingy on the base in the right place.

Sew many cards has a challenge to use punches and I have used 2, my rounded corner punch and fancy edging, hope thats enough.

The sentiment is from  a set I won from the darkroom on the last world card day, hope he doesn't take it seriously, after all I'm older than he is.

The Pixie cottage have a theme of circles and I'm hoping all my little dots will count as little tiny circles, well a girl can try can't she.

Here's a close up of my button bugs and punched edge, just cos I think they are cute as buttons but not in real life.

Well hope you all have a fab weekend and enjoy the sunshine, we are having hope it's shinning down on you too.
