This is the card I made for my mom's colleague and friend's birthday. The celebration was last night and she LOVED the card!

As she is often called "Schlumpfine" I was searching the net for a nice picture of her... and as Karin got a roofed wicker beach chair (like they have at the North Sea) for her birthday, this free colouring page was just perfect for her card. 

and the inside of the card...

Stamp: free colouring page of "Schlumpfine"
Sentiment Creatables Die
Ink Pad in dark blue
Colours: Polychromos from Faber Castell
Dies: Spellbinder Nestabilities, Memory Box "Whimsy Circle" & "Typewriter Numbers"
