First for the Year - Sweet Sunday Challenge 51


A bit of a slow start to the year. Especially as I have made a goal to get ahead on my birthday cards this year. Although on holiday, the usual routine goes out the window and not everything happens as you plan. Just have to kick back and enjoy it and make the most of the time I do get to stamp. The first three months of the year are very busy with all our birthdays and many others in the family. So it was good to get a start on one of many to come. I really enjoy taking part in the challenges that are offered on line but am never usually able to get it onto the list. So I have sneaked in the last day for one of my favourites Sweet Sunday Challenge. This is my take on challenge #51.

It is for a teenage nephew. Male cards are tricky as it is but this one came together well as I kept the colour very simple and mixed and matched the stamps to fit the theme. I do like the variety of things you can do with the All in the Family set. To see what else I have come up with check it out here.

Although it should be summer the weather hasn't been all that wonderful. Must have made a difference making the card though as we have finally got a beautiful day to enjoy.

Colour: chocolate chip, kraft
Stamps: all in the family, just beachy and lazy days wheel (SU), alphabet ( unknown)
Finishing Touches: chocolate ribbon, postal scissors
