Have A Cracking Birthday

Well I'm back ..... sort of. I had a lovely few days in the south west of England at a place called Porlock Weir on the edge of Exmoor. The weather was fabulous as was the scenery and the only problem was a nasty insect bite I got on the first day. Luckily I'd got some antihistamine tablets with me. Got home raring to go and after a day washing and shopping I was ready to get on with some crafting and you know what they say about the best laid plans, so of course something had to go wrong and it did. I've trapped a nerve in my back and this is day number 4 in bed. I can at least walk to the bathroom unaided now but I can't sit for more than a few minutes at a time and bending is definitely out of the question!!!! So I am trying to do a bit of blogging in bed and at least I have a card I made just before my holidays to show you.

It's another of the House Mouse decoupage sheets from the 'Fruit and Nut' collection. Again I've gone for the CAS style as there are so many layers on the image (which don't show up so well on the photo) and the background paper was free with a magazine.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Simon Says challenge 'Masculine or Fathers Day'
Charisma Cardz challenge 'Tons of Layers'
Bearly Mine challenge 'Anything Goes'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Hello Boys'
Joanna Sheen challenge 'Spots and/or Stripes'
House Mouse & Friends challenge 'Masculine or Fathers Day'
Lexi's Creations challenge 'Fathers Day or Special Male Birthday'
Ladybug Crafts challenge 'For the Men in Your Life'

Thanks for dropping by and I hope to get round to catch up with you all soon.
