Well I hope the quote on my card makes the grade for this week's Cute Card Thursday Challenge - it's an old Penny Black sentiment I have in my stash and I always think it's a nice way to celebrate someone's birthday. Mind you, I do have another Penny Black sentiment which I like to use sometimes, which is 'It's Your Birthday, You're How Old?' I think that's an appropriate one to put on my Dad's card for his birthday next week actually so I might be fishing it out. I've been thinking about my Dad's card a bit because he probably wouldn't appreciate a cutesy one - hmmmmmm, the first love in his life has always been red buses as he drove one for many years and has studied the history of British transport (I know, yawn, lol!). So please be prepared - I'm thinking of decoupaging a big red bus for his card and might just upload it if I dare. Do you want to take a look?
I really enjoyed making this Hanglar card and using some more scrummy papers from the Porcelain range, they're sooooooo pretty and summery. I took my piccie this morning before I left for work and the sun was streaming onto the shrub outside my front door, so I just let it catch the top of my card a bit....... well you've got to capture the sun wherever you can, lol! I'm having a bit of a run on faux stitching and distressing at the minute and really loving colouring with my Polys too (mustn't neglect the Copics though as they cost too much for that!!!) - am I getting a bit better with me pencils Tab?
Right ho, back to the day job again...... I've been clock watching today which isn't good but we're just about to have an office meeting so that'll pass an hour!
I think I'll make a card for this week's Just Magnolia Challenge tonight, as I love paper piecing and will enjoy playing along ;o)
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
