Phew, what a week....

it's been.  March is a really busy month for me. My husband, daughter, niece, sister, brother in law, work colleague and friend's son all have birthday's within a few days/weeks of each other, and to top it all it was my daughter's 21st last weekend so I had to get a scrapbook done as well as cards for them all. 

 I've been pretty busy shopping for pressies, going out with the family to celebrate my daughter and niece's joint 21st and then spending this last weekend in London, so haven't had not much time for blogging. Although I did manage to squeeze in the Hobbycraft show at the NEC last Thursday (I bought a few goodies, but would have liked to have spent a whole load more - you know how it is!).  I'm hoping for a less hectic week next week. 

Right, on to the card.  As I didn't get chance to photograph my daughter's card before she popped off back to uni, I have my brother in law's card to show you.

It's a familiar character, I used him for a card a few posts ago, it's Alf with beer from the Digistamp Boutique, I think he's suitable for many male cards (or maybe it's just the ones I know. lol). 

The papers are DCWV again.  I bought a whole pile of these from QVC ages ago when it was on offer at a great price, but they've just been sitting in my stash until recently. The sentiment was done on the computer using Accord SF font (thanks to Kerry - for the link to this one) and Alf has been coloured with Promarkers.

I'm hoping to get my Mother's day card done in the next couple of days and then get round to visiting some blogs to see what everyone has been up to, until then, enjoy the rest of the week!
