Hi, good morning, a quick post today as I'm always so busy in the weekend. Yesterday it was housework, visiting aunt who is still in hospital after her hip op, visiting mum who is in an old people's home and today it's more housework and some family time as well. . . but just finished this card that I made for some challenges.. and now I'm thinking that I will send it off to my brother who lives in Australia. It's his birthday next month! I think he'll like it.

I used my lovely Ruffles stamp today and he is colored with my promarkers and the border punch is my newest Martha Stewart punch. I tried to use lots of white for my card and kept it quite simple for a minimalist effect, but not sure if I managed this so well.. first time I'm doing this type of card. Hope you like it!

This is the sketch that I followed.

The challenges:

1 - Allsorts Challenge No 52 - It's BIRTHDAYS here this week as Allsorts are celebrating their birthday too and there is a blog hop as well, which I followed happily yesterday :)
2 - The Sweet Stop Challenge No 56 - For the SKETCH.. and this week it's with a SPIN to make a card FOR THE GUYS
3 - Paper Cutz Challenge No 41 - To make a card, LO or craft project using a digital, hand stamped or Cricut cut image of a DOG or CAT.... I immediately remembered my cute Ruffles stamp.
4 - Oh La La Challenge No 53 - MINIMALIST
5 - Stampin' for the Weekend - A CARD FOR A MALE

Thank you so much for looking.
