CraftyCatz challenge #466, meet Aubrey Bumblethorpe.

Morning to you all, hope your all doing ok.
This week at CraftyCatz we have a perfect Male/Fathers day UK for you but as always we are an ATG challenge blog so up to you.
Our lovely Dianne set this theme, sponsored by Dr Digi house of stamps who was more than generous with the teams images, big thank you for that.You can find the image I used HERE
For my card i just had to use Aubrey Bumblethorpe, how cool is that name it.
OK coloured him up with Flex markers, clear coat on his glasses, stitched round frame, waxed cord from stash and embossing folder is CraftersCompanion, the little tag is from a stamp set unmarked.

Well hope you will come along and join us, the team work really hard to try and inspire you all so its nice to see you there too.

On a more personal note, its my beautiful granddaughter Mia's 16th Birthday today, all of you that know me and my blog know how quickly the time seems to have gone, she has her last exam today also, but I am confident enough in her ability and sheer hard work, to know she will do well, so after the summer break she is off to sixth form college, can you even!!!!!!!!.me either!!!!!!!! so proud of her. She has always had the kindest of hearts and would do anything to help another, she is the one who stopped running a race to help a class mate who was less fortunate than her and couldn't keep up, she grabbed his hand and made sure he made the finish line, she will share her meal with you she will help you through a crisis and always be there for a friend,she is the one who will accept anyone, no matter what, she can see no wrong in people and she is a beautiful human being and I am left wondering at times, how did I get to be so lucky to have her in my family..
So, Happy birthday my sweet girl, you have given me far more than I could have ever hoped for, I couldn't love anyone more than I do you, forever and a day Mia...

Poly wreath made for a friend.

At last I can add this to my blog, I made it a while ago for a friend who has only just received it, I think she likes it.
Both myself and my friend {aunty Sue } bought these polystyrene hoops last year I think, I made one into one of those horrid Christmas ornament wreath', so decided to cover this in raffia, add lots of pretty flowers from The Ribbon Girl, the chippy bike was an eBay find, although I did layer a couple up to make sturdy, same with the Hello sign, I cut about six I think and glued together and the banner was bought from the works a million years ago, burlap ribbon eBay again.
I added a little bunch of flowers to the basket on the bike, looking at it all now I wonder if I should have put the flowers up the side of the wreath..!!!!!...who knows, maybe next time.
That's it again, I hope you like of can take some inspiration from this.
Enjoy your weekend.

I coloured her with a set of pro markers warm grey, although to my eyes it does look brown in parts, but I promise its grey.Anyways, paper is Craft Sensations and the same for the mixed flower dies.The sentiment is a very old wood block stamp which has long ago lost its name.

I just love this image, maybe its the Witch in me I don't know.!!!!!!!
