Hubby's Birthday Card

A sunny good morning to all from Birmingham.  Well although it's colder today the sun is out, beautiful weather for a walk, a lovely spring day.  Just thought I'd post the card I made for my hubby's birthday. I was quite pleaased with this it came out better than I'd anticipated.  It's an easil card using one of the Whimsy lazy days stamps.  My poor hubby hasn't had time to stop and relax over the past few weeks, between work, decorating and trying to tidy up the garden after winter so I thought this was appropriate for him and he loved it, he even said it's one of the best I've made for him.... I used:-

Whimsy stamps
SB Grand Calibur plain & scalloped circles
SB Stars
Navy & pale blue cardstock
Paper from stash
sun burst edge border die (not sure which make)
blue twine

What do you think?  See you soon.

    p.s with my digi's I copy and paste from my pics which are saved on my computer into word. Then if you left click on the image a box will appear. Go to the corner of the box with your mouse and an arrow will appear. Now you can drag the mouse and make the image smaller or larger. Hope this makes sense xx
