Bumpity Bump!

Morning all - hope you are ok.  I'm pacing the house like the most nervous squirrel you have ever seen - got a dental consult at the hospital this afternoon.  Eeeeeeeek.  Now, you know me and dentists - we don't see eye to eye at the best of times but the hospital is the very place that started this phobia anyway (when I broke my jaw 23 years ago) so I am certainly not looking forward to renewing the acquaintance!

So, to try and take my mind off it all for a little while, here's a happy card for you


I've used this adorable stamp from Lili Of The Valley called Birthday Bumps and painted with Distress Inks.  Again did the clouds with an Ink Duster and Tumbled Glass ink, and the grass I did with a brush that's had a bad hair day.  Papers are all Echo Park Summer Days.

I'd like to enter this for three challenges:
SIMON SAYS STAMP - Anything Goes
PAPERTAKE WEEKLY - Hot Hot Hot
CRAFTS AND ME - Summertime

And just before I go, we heard the brilliant news last night that Toad's nephew has got a First in his Mechanical Engineering degree!  Way to go Michael!!  So I had to make a quick card to pop in the post didn't I?  This one uses the less-is-more principle


Oh how I do miss Elzybells stamps!  Love this mechanic bear.  Hero Arts sentiment, and another one inside that simply says Let's Celebrate.

Back to pacing ............

Hugs, Sxx

Good luck at the dentist i know what you mean about getting nervous before a visit. Won't tell you why i'm nervous but it happened many years ago when i was around 12 years old and have had nightmares ever since...

Under the circumstances you have produced two wonderful cards. Many congratulations to the newly qualified mechanical engineer. Does this mean he can go to work in F1 lol??? :-)
