MAWTT # 59 & Cute Card Thursday #125 & LOTV #60

Hi girls, great to see you back on my blog again. If however it's your first visit - I glad you popped in. I hope you had a good day yesterday. I had a great day because my friend Kathleen of The Daisy Chain) came round in the afternoon and we had a couple of hourscrafting together. It's great to have someone to craft with.
I made this card for my youngest son Andrew's birthday on Sunday coming (I can post it because he never looks at my blog) but want to enter it into three challenges. Moving Along With the Times (MAWTT) who gave a fantastic sketch to follow, Cute Card Thursday had the theme "Tree-mendous" and Lili of the Valley where the theme was "4 Seasons" and you were asked to make a crad representing one season - I chose Summer. The image is LOTV's "" and coloured it using a mixture of Copic Ciaos and Polychromos Pencils. The papers are one by Magnolia, Basic Grey's Capella - Forte and one unknown. I also used brown card as a mount. I also used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder on one panel. There are no other embellies because I don't think he would want anything too fancy. I hope you like this card and would love it if you could find the time to let me know what you think of it.
Just a quick reminder that Teri over at Delicious Doodles in on the 4th day of here freebie giveaway. She is also running a competition to win 10 Digi images of your choice from her site so why not click on the advert in my sidebar and pop in to see what is on offer.
I have a hospital appointment today so I might not be around until the afternoon - hopefully having been told I can forget the oxygen machine.
Thanks for calling in. I hope your day goes well and that you get some quality crafting time to yourself.
Love and Hugs,
