Is this bright enough for you?

Hi all,

I hope you had a lovely weekend and are enjoying your Monday. I had a wonderful weekend away. The Hunter Valley has so many lovely views, and the winerys aren't bad either! The girls went to kindy and I did my usual jobs today. I have lots to do at the moment, as hubby's work is being moved back to England and we've just been told that we are leaving here on the 16th May. Aaagh! Under a month to move our lives back to Northumberland. What makes it worse is that I won't have my craft stuff for about 2 months as it goes by sea freight. So, I'm madly making lots of DT cards so that I don't miss any weeks even if I don't have my stash.

It's another challenge over on the Incy Wincy challenge blog. The theme is bright and bold and we are being sponsored by Michelle's scrapbooking and more, the home of Pixie Cottage stamps. The DT were lucky enough to be able to choose an image, and I chose birthday boy. I thought it would go well with a bright colour scheme. The papers are by K and co. I have now run out of them so must find some more as they are great for male cards in particular. I doodled two lines around the image, which I've never done before but I like the effect. Check out the wonderful cards by the rest of the DT.
