The one with the Dotty Border

Good Morning to you my lovely blog I type this I am sitting in my back garden, enjoying my first cup of tea of the day, a beautiful sunrise and the very welcome feeling of slightly cooler air.....another hot day is forecast, as is a thunderstorm, which I am quite looking forward to.

I do have a card to share I've made for the box that I will, at some point donate to the PDSA shop. Hubby and I have volunteered for them for a couple of years now, and were out once a week collecting donations from people's light of the covid situation we are not able to do this, so I've turned to my craft desk as my way to do my bit.

Again, I've used this super cute mouse from LOTV, it is a little treat to colour.....and I have done so using Promarkers. The papers are from a Dovecraft pad, which I loved, and unfortunately had used up....then I found the same pad amongst my Mums stash and "persuaded" her to part with it, hehe. The dotty panel, is actually two off cuts so I embossed a little border to join them. Own sentiment, which features happy, happy birthday font. Added a die cut pennant, which I'd also embossed and die cut flowers with enamel dots.

I would like to enter these challenges, please;:

    I am hoping the air will be much clearer here tomorrow as we have had a good thunderstorm and masses of rain this evening! It started about an hour after we had spent time watering the garden LOL!!
