Flying birthday wishes

Happy Monday all....phew what amazing weather we enjoyed over the weekend, it is like being abroad. The temperatures are set to get even higher this week too!
I enjoyed some crafting and gardening time...keeping in the shade after lunch as it got so hot.
There is nothing like al fresco dining and our patio is our outside dining area during the summer. We love to eat out there whenever we can.
Billy likes the shade too.

It is also time for my weekly Visible Image DT make and I can finally share a birthday card I made for someone very guesses as to who it is....
Yes none other than the lovely Mrs Visible Image aka Helen. Helen celebrated her special day last week. I made an alcohol ink background using lots of pinks and purples on Yupo paper. 
I then stamped the fab Hummingbird from the life is beautiful stamp set

I stamped out Helen's name using alphabetical
and also happy birthday from Go to words
I cut out the letters and words and added thin satin ribbons.
I then added them to my card with foam tape for dimension,
Here are some close ups;
