Summer Sailing

Evening Everyone,
I hope that you have had a great Saturday.
I guess that this had better be a very quick post, I have been having way too much fun finishing off cards that I started today in my class at Davina's.
It's far too dark to take pictures tonight so you will have to content with this card that I made for the young son of one of the customers at work.
He has been suffering with the chicken pox and so this was made to cheer him up, and also to wish him belated  birthday greetings.
I have used part of a lovely Penny Black stamp which I coloured with my trusty distress ink pads.
I used an EK Success punch across the bottom of the panel, and added some tiny peel-off dots and Card Candi.
You may have noticed that I am very into adding tiny dots to my work. Here I have added them to the Woodware greeting and around the mice.
The background papers are from my stash, and I made the card using the lovely sketch no43 at Freshly Made Sketches.
I added some Magnolia swirls around the edge of the green card and also some Frantage Embossing Enamel.
I have some more kids cards to make tomorrow as it is nearly time for the Twins birthday. I think I will break out a couple of my favourite Lili of the Valley die cuts for them.
Off to bed now before I get side tracked into finishing another card.
I've suddenly realized just how weather appropriate my card is. You are nearly able to sail across the bottom of our road with all the rain recently lol.
Night night
