Happy Birthday

Morning girls
I've had a lovely weekend outside in all this glorious sunshine.  Saturday we spent tidying the garden, we even lit the little chimnea and had a wine or two out there till just gone 10pm. Then yesterday we went along the Clyde Valley visiting a few of the garden centres to stock up on some more plants so the garden looks nice and colourful for summer. Isn't it lovely to see a bright sky and not have layers upon layers of clothes on:)  Long may it last I say:)  Hopefully spring has finally sprung.
So, onto our challenge this week on Karen's Doodles.  Nice and easy so I hope lots of you find the time to enter


I've gone for the CAS look with this one as I love this little laddie and don't like to distract from the image with too many fussy bits. Guess who forgot to colour his eyes????  Yip, look closely and you'll see although they're now a lovely blue to match his outfit but I didn't have time to redo the pic.
Papers are some bits from me scrap box, I think thet may be DCWV but, they're so old I'm not sure. I've coloured as usual with my copics, added some faux stitching around the edges, some cord and a few dew drops complete the look.
So, there's me effort for this week.  I do hope you'll find the time to play along as we do love to see your creations each week.
