Spots and Stripes

Hello again :) - well it has been such a lovely week so far.  My OH is now off on holiday too and the sun has been shining.  On Sunday we spent the day in the garden with the kids and then ventured out to the park after lunch.  I then got an email asking for a birthday card for a motorbike lover - not having any motorbike themed items I trawlled the internet and found the following image which I used on the card below:

When I was making this card I really loved the colours from the Jovial Man collection on the Funky Hand Colour Me Happy cd I thought they went well with the digi image and with a bit of luck it happened to fit in with the Funky Hand challenge of Spots and Stripes! Yay So I have entered it in to the challenge.  I just hope the recipient liked his card!

After finishing this card I thought as it was a nice evening that we would go out for fish and chips at South Queensferry.  We had a delicious tea and then went for a walk (and ice cream) and my OH took these:

The ice-cream was delicious! Raspberry Ripple Flavour shlurp :)  Well I better go as I have a huge pile of ironing to do!  Got an exciting day out planned tomorrow too so will be heading to bed early :)  TTFN Vx
