Summer Fun on my Birthday...not

Happy Birthday to me, bit rubbish because my cold has gone really bad,and it's horrid weather wise. So grey and wet here, not like on my card. Still I will enjoy my day crafting with my new House Mouse stamps and Bob and I are having a meal out this evening.

My card is made with house mouse stamps,2 sets, summer fun for the image and chill out for the fruit segments and the sentiment.
I've coloured with pro markers . The sun tan lotion WOW embossing powder ,white puff (because it puffs up when heated), clever hey, good for snow too.
The drink is a spellbinders diecut.As is the scallop rectangle.
The papers ,orange one,dcwv the cloudy one,mag freebee.A strip of orange ribbon and were done.

You'll have had your meal our by now - I hope it was thoroughly enjoyable. Pity the weather had to be so awful on your birthday and I hope the cold is on it.s way out by tomorrow. I found some of those capsules that dry it all up and have been taking them. Great cos it meant I could still go dancing tonight. Having trouble speaking though - so that might have been a relief to some.
Another fab house mouse card - love the colours you've used and the puff stuff for the sun lotion.
