Woodware Challenge - Summer Fun

Evening Everyone
Thanks for stopping by. As you know Monday is the start of a new challenge over at Woodware. This week it is Summer Fun.
A friend has asked me to make a birthday card for his Grandsons first birthday on Saturday and so I decided that it was the perfect way to link to the challenge.
I am also entering the challenge over at Mojo Monday where I have used their sketch as my inspiration.
The main image on my easel card has been taken from FRCL127 Jungle Pals. This is such a fun set and great for kids cards. Definitely Summer Fun in my opinion lol. I have coloured it using ink from a Kaleidacolor Creole Spice ink pad, my all time favourite.
A Lili of the Valley Circular Sentiments did manage to sneak its way in there I'm afraid, along with assorted papers and ribbon from my stash. I don't appear to have any Woodware papers or ribbon so I can see that I will have to rectify that at some point.
I added some leaves using the lovely Woodware Monstera punch and some tiny flowers, also from my stash.
The abstract line is taken from another Woodware stamp set FRCL021 Jungle Retro, and Lets Celebrate from FRCL154 Salutations. All are available from SirStampalot.
The number 1 is a peel-off.
I will deliver it tomorrow which will give Kevin a bit of a shock as he only asked me about it today, I even made a box for it.
Don't forget to join in with the challenges.
Love and hugs


  1. Oh how fun this card is!! I love the giraffe - and I have that leaf punch! It's so exciting to see how people use punches, papers, images etc that I have - so inspiring! What an ace first birthday card!

    luv, Mags x

  2. Hi Kim, your card is just DARLING - you've put a lot into it. So much detail and fine little touches. Simply wonderful, glad I came by.

    Have a wonderful week,

  3. What a lovely card Kim. I love the layout and the colours. And the cluster of leaves and flowers really finishes it off. Well Done! Thanks for joing in our challenge at Woodware this week.

  4. I agree with everything else that has been said, I wanted to do some round easel cards but I don't think I will bother now!

  5. Really, really FAB card Kim !!
