....and finally, a post!

Hello friends and followers, I hope you are all well and if you're in the UK I hope you are managing to keep cool in this heat. I must say, Im not good with it myself and have been so grateful that our school has already broken up. I really think I would have struggled big time working through this.
I'm easing myself gently into the holiday routine-there's been lots of 'oh, I'll do that tomorrow!'
I've finally managed to get around to showing the card I made for my son's recent 21st birthday-he's a huge Marvel fan so we secretly arranged for the party to have 'Superheroes' as the theme and we bought loads of decorations and everyone turned up in a Superhero T shirt of some description.
I decided to use The Hulk for his card as Adam's also into his gym and weight lifting so I thought he was quite apt.
I found this image online and wanted to layer him with a comic page background which I also found online. I decided it would be fun to make him look like he was busting through the page so cut and folded back the paper. The sentiments are computer generated.

I spent ages making this timeline for his party too, cutting out individual banners, die cutting each picture -one for every year,and adding some punched stars . We strung it up along the conservatory and it was a real hit. I couldn't bear to take it down though and it managed to stay up for well over a week after!

I'd like to think I can now slowly start to get back to normal crafting activity but the old mojo is playing up again, maybe it's the heat??
I am trying to get around and comment on all your makes but I hope you'll bear with me-I do check in each day to see what you've all been making.
Thank you so much for stopping by today.
Until next time then.
