Hello Everyone.....what a great weekend. sad it is over as there were a few more things I would have loved to get done, but at least I was able to get another coat of paint on my fence and did all the inside too, so the gardens stand out better and they are starting to look real pretty now.....much better to look out the front door and see a painted fence than bare wood...just need to fill my half round baskets ,hang them up, then done for the I'm sure not going out there when the real heat comes.....we are sitting on 20 - 21[70 -72F] each day at the moment..just right.

So here we are for another MAKE IT MONDAY  and congrats to last week winners...

We are being sponsored by DR.DIGIS HOUSE OF STAMPS this week, and my, they have hilarious fun images...

For my card share I used this image called HEADLESS ......

I came up with the sentiment while colouring him in, plus an acquaintance needed a fiftieth birthday card and had no idea what her friend was into to give me a theme...

Coloured the head with pencils...paper pieced his jacket and shoes...and some doodling around the edge...then glittered up his shirt and collar....

The papers are 'Authentique... Comfort and familiar' and I love this pad, and need to find more as these sheets were about the last of them...

The lettering 50 came from my die cut swaps with DORA  thanks Dora..

Close up of sentiment.....

Hope he enjoys his card....

Well, once again, I had to choose my favourite POTW..always so difficult, but came down to this card from #30 BIRGIT  ...

Very pretty card Birgit...thanks for sharing..

So that's me done..back to the coal mines today...thanks for stopping by, will see you tomorrow..

  31. Hello my sweet friend. I hope that you are well and it sure seems that you are enjoying that wonderful weather. :O) We are so cold here at the moment that our night sky is really light from all the frost in the air. Brrrr.. It is an amazing thing to think that we can talk to each other everyday and you are in summer while I am in winter. My Grandma would truly be amazed if she were still alive. Anyway my friend, I love this card. I love the texture you have given him with your coloring and with the way talented ways that you work your papers. :O) Very very cute card for a 50 year old's Birthday. Hug Harry for me. When you get a chance and are very looking for something to do I would love to know how you fixed your blogger issue. Have a wonderful week. Hugs, Lisa
