Happy Day(s)

Hi, how's your weekend going so far? 

I've been quite productive - my mother-in-law and I finished fixing the trampoline surround yesterday. My 4 year old son had managed to rip an enormous gash all along one of the panels so I decided to "Make Do and Mend". My son tried to "help" before I chased him away. It's hard to sew when you are sitting on a trampoline with someone bouncing on it! 

Once the kids were in bed I managed to finish a card and present for one of my best friends. It was her birthday yesterday - I know, I know late again!! I will post some pictures of the card and present after I have handed them over to her on Wednesday when I see her.

Today's card is one that was inspired by a card one of my fellow Pinkies Lizy Bartaby posted on her blog Creatin' and Stampin'. Take a look at Lizy's card here.

I love the overstamping style and have used it quite a lot with other stamp sets, but I hadn't actually thought to use it with Happy Day until I saw the background on Lizy's card.
