HAPPY BIRHHDAY CARD
Good morning, from a very chilly north east! Firstly thank you once again for your kind comments on my engagement card.
Today I am showing a card. My friend asked me to make cards for her to have in her box, so she has ones at hand to save her going out looking in every shop to get something different and suitable!!., After asking her what she was looking for and getting a list of things she would like to see on a card, I have been having to go out of my comfort zone a lot!!!
She asked for flowers, lace and just different on one for the cards, now I have loads of lace and it doesn't see the light of day that offen, ribbon again tons of and flowery card stock plenty, so this is what I came up with!
It's an 8x8 card, flowery card stock from one of the "Works" 12x12 pads - great card stock to work with and a bargain at £4
Lace threaded with ribbon from stash, Heartfelt creations aster flower, with Sue Wilson and Marieanna foliage ( cut from bit box bits) Presscut "Happy Birthday" pearls from stash, now I did notice a pearl had moved before I sent off the cards, I didn't rephotograph, at least I did notice.
My friend is delighted with what I have sent, thank goodness, it is difficult to make cards for someone else to use when they take you out of your comfort zone.
Off now to get the ironing done, then I will see what the day brings. Was helping grandson with a school project on the 1960. So ironing was left. He had to interview people who lived in the 60s etc. All done, tomorrow it's open afternoon at the school so I am going to see their work, I am wondering if it's tea and cake as well? The war time project was good and they baked cakes from recipes of that time. We might just get another treat!
Again thank you for calling to see what I have been up to.
