Sunny days and Stars

Hello ... How are you?
We are experiencing really lovely weather here in the UK and I've spent a lovely day with my SIL ... shopping and lunching ...

To be honest it's a bit hot for me ... I've never been a sun worshipper ... and I find it difficult to sleep when it's hot ... but thankfully I was blessed with olive skin so even just a short exposure gives me a healthy glow.
It's funny ... I spent years of torment and bullying at school for having olive skin .... so back then I didn't realise I was blessed ... but now, thank goodness, we live in a multi racial, multi cultural society and I am no longer the butt of jibes ... And ... I get to tan easily!

I have a card to share which I made for a male friend ... using the lovely SB star die from This set by Nina Brackett... nothing too fancy being as it is for a man ...

The background paper is by Eline's Huis and the Birthday paper is a Hero Arts digital stamp from Two peas .... which I altered the colour of in Photoshop to co-ordinate with my choice of paper

The paper I used for the scalloped border (PTI die) and the stars is also a digital "One Year Older" by Karen Funk from Digital House Designs - printed on to heavy weight paper ... that way the embossing on the stars show up more ... Oh and my card stock was just a plain white card but again I used a digital to get a kraft colour ... from Pink Petticoat Organics ... I love this collection and at £1.25 It's a steal!

Right, I'm hoping to eat out in the garden this evening ... I fancy a nice fresh salmon salad with a glass of red wine ... so I'd better get going...
Have a wonderful weekend ... Thanks so much for stopping by

Till soon
