Happy Birthday To You

Good morning and happy Mother's Day, I hope you are keeping well. Over at Stampotique, there's a new challenge which is to make a birthday card, so here's the card that I've made for my nephew. He's 15 this time so I hope this fits the bill.

First of all, I made my card base, then I stamped and watercoloured my images.

 This is the front with Miguel Has A Gift.

 The card opened out. The stars have been stamped with Romantic Text.

And a gathering on the right-hand side with Happy Happy Happy, Towering Gifts, Dog Cube, Pedro, and Schmurpy.

I'm also entering my guys into the Craft Stamper TIMI challenge for March.

I'm going over to see my mum later today for a few minutes. We can all sit in the garden away from each other lol. It seems very weird but her and my dad are nearly 80 so we're not taking any chances.

Thanks very much for looking, take care, and stay safe x


  1. Gorgeous card, your nephew will love it! Have a great day, stay well and safe, hugs, Valerie

  2. Happy Mother's Day Sue, what a cracker this creation is. Those characters really do have character.. your Nephew will LOVE it.
    Enjoy your day with your parents, in these strange times even a moment with them is precious. I've already done my bit with My Mom earlier in the week and spoken today on the phone. She's got plenty of food for the week and enjoying her new 1000 piece jigsaw I brought to keep her mind active.
    Stay safe Sue & carry on crafting ((HUGS) << yes (((Hugs!!) Tracey xx

  5. LOL! As soon as I saw the Happy Mother's Day sentence, I laughed out loud, Sue! Fabby cards, and such wonderful colors! hugs, de

  6. Love, love, love it! Genius folded structure for the surprise party and fabulous watercolouring on the images... one of my favourite Stampotique cards I've seen in a long time. Love those wild stitched borders too - perfection. Hope you had a lovely (and safe) time with your parents. Yup, we've got to do what it takes to keep them safe.
