Birthday card for Stephen, Polkadoddles Challenge 26 & Anyone 4 Anya - Getting round to it!

Hello again, sorry it's been a while been busy at work and home lol It was our Son's birthday over the weekend so it was all go to get sorted for that, but thankfully he wasa good boy and no tantrums that day at least!lol

I've made a birthday for my Sister-in-law's partner Stephen who'll be 40 in December, i thought i'd make a start now rather than later as i am making christmas cards too lol. Thankfully too his card has co-insided with Polkadoodles and Anyone 4 Anya challenges.

Materials i've used:

Making Memories - Blank card, cardstock numbers and tag
DCWV - Retro backing papers
HOTP - Brads and buttons
Of course the really cute Ian stamp from The Greeting Farm
My new shiny silver pro-marker (i thought i would try one but i think I'm now hooked!) and pencils to colour Ian in.

Oh i can't wait going to Amsterdam for the weekend next week!! A bit of peace and quite just me and the huby from our little monster who'll will be staying with parents bless them.

Hope you're all ok in blog land and take care

Sal xx


  1. Hi sal, loving your anya card, I always love brown and turquoise,thanks for visiting my blog hope to see you back soon ju x

  2. Like the colours and image Sal. Happy belated birthday to Ethan. Thanks for visiting me. Lucky you to be whisked off to Amsterdam without yer little monster! I reckon if me and Pete went away for a weekend there would be little romance - we'd probably just sleep for England in total peace! LOL!
