Happy Birthday Bro #1

Good morning. Today I'm bringing my post to you using Jack's laptop as mine has completely died now :o(
But the good news is that I did sweet talk John and later this morning we are going to shop for a new laptopamabob for me :o)
The scary thing will be trying to get all my 'stuff' off my old laptop onto the new one - not looking forward to that job!!!!

So my share for today is another of the 8 birthday cards for Jamie and Aaron and this one is for Jamie from Jack.

I have used a fab image from Mo Manning 'Paul Typing' and coloured him with FM's and PM's

DP's - DCVW Nana's Nursery For a Boy - these papers are so versatile.

This also used:
Martha Stewart Border Punch
Stars - Sizzix Die
Diamond Stickles
Sentiment - Pink Petticoat punched with Stampin Up Word Window punch
Bakers Twine and buttons from stash

Challenges I took inspiration from:
Here Come the Boys - Hobbies
A&T Digital Designs - Anything Goes
Just Tracy's - Anything Goes
Sparkles Forum - Men Only
C.R.A.F.T - Buttons
Mo's Digital Challenge - Anything Goes & Optional Sketch
Cute Card Thursday - For the Boys
Simon Says Stamp - Birthday
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Cards for Men - Kicking Back

Well we got to the seaside yesterday and it was a lovely sunny day. The fish and chips were scrummy as always and we had a lovely stroll along the beach. But I doubt we will be having the planned BBQ at Aaron & Kerry's as it is now pouring down with rain - typical Great British Bank Holiday weather - yuk!!!

Thanks for your visit today. I really appreciate all your suppoirt and look forward to reading any comments you may wish to leave.

Have a fabulous day whatever you are doing - enjoy!

That's a fabulous card - love the image. Oh no I can fully sympathise with the laptop after mine died a month ago - it's a right nightmare trying to get stuff off the old one when it's died, the only thing I have a problem with now is my i-tunes! Hope you get it sorted. Glad you managed to get to the seaside hun. Enjoy the rest of your day. Hugs, Claire x
