A Card for Several Challenges

Good Morning All, well the sun is sort of half out and its still a bit chilly, but at least its dry and the days are getting longer and hopefully it wont be long before we enjoy warmer ones as well. Anyway todays card has been created for several Challenges, firstly Mo's "A Bit of Green", Tip Top Tuesday's "Happy Birthday", Cute Card Thursday's "3rd Birthday" and Paperplay's "Shades of Green/Good Luck". Ive used this lovely little chap whos name is "Sam in trouble" and I can well remember my middle daughter Sarah doing a similar thing with felt tip pens all over our wallpaper, sweet child and of course we couldnt get it of, she also did the same thing with her dolls as well, mind you she will be 44 in a weeks time and I dont think shed like to be reminded of her naughty carryons, I have to laugh shes got four children of her own and has been through the same things with them to, so all I could say was "now you know what its like" not that it went down well. Anyway Ive printed him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him and the Nestabilitie Die Label No.8 to cut him out and then used the same die to create a faux mount for him. The sentiment is one from my stash and Ive used a double ended tag die for this one, the No.3 was also cut out with a Nestabilitie Die.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of lime greem card and one of three papers from the Nitwit Downloads, the first a green stripe paper, the second paper a green spot and was cut into a smaller strip which has had both sides punched with the train border punch from Martha Stewart, then on top Ive used a green plaid one thats been mounted on another piece of the same green card and positioned down the middle. I then positioned my mounted image on top and the sentiment below on the right and attached it to the card with brads, and then stuck the No.3 at the end. To finish of Ive popped some little train buttons down the right hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

What a lovely card Shirley.The buttons are so cute and that image is so funny- I think every mum must have a crayon story! Luckily mine wasn't too bad- I had a builder working in the garden and Matthew must have got fed up of waiting for me to come back in from talking to him,so he crayoned on the windowsill! Luckily that wasn't too hard to remove.
Hugs, Alison x

my son once scribbled all over his bedroom wall with BLACK magic marker. i made him sleep with the light on! boy he was NOT a happy camper. of course i didn't tell him we were getting painted in a few days! but hey, he wanted to draw, he had to look at it! i know, i'm so cruel!

hugs :)

I am so entertaining. I think my favorite b-day ritual is probably getting the birthday call from my mom. She always sings happy birthday to me.
