Happy 18th Birthday

When I saw this Woodware stamp, I knew it would be a good one to have.  Boy's 18th birthday cards can be a bit troublesome, so I thought this stamp might make life a bit easier.

Simple card today, with the 18th paper pieced using Doodlebug paper.  The card is then finished off with candy and that's it!

Hope you all have a good weekend, it's turned chilly again here so there won't be any gardening.  I should go for a run, but it's just started to rain & my motivation is somewhat lacking... we'll see!

This is fab Janice! I agree male 18th and 21st cards are one of the hardest to make… this is a wonderful design.. I love the paper piecing and the candy finishes it off beautifully! :-)
