Flying by......

....with a birthday Hi!!!
This was the card I made for Geoff who entered the "naughty forties" recently!!
I have used the fab stamp from Penny Black called "Hedgehopper" , on the actual stamp it does have a trail of hearts floating out the back but I chose to use a birthday banner instead, I think it works quite well especially for those man cards!!
Just a quick visit from me today as unfortunately my mum is still in hospital and there hasn't been much progress and she is in a lot of pain. It is heart braking to see her as she is normally a very strong person.
Thank you all very much for your get well wishes for her.
I will be entering my card into the following challenges
Penny black saturday - anything goes
Crafty your days away = birthday celebrations
Just some lines- outdoor/summer colours
Papertake weekly - anything goes
Apologies if i haven't visited you recently will do my best to catch up with you all x
