Birthday Boy!

Afternoon all, is the sun shining where you are?  It is here in Hull although it's still a bit chilly!, better than it was this morning though, you couldn't see anything then for the fog!

I'm having a bit of a quiet day here today so thought I'd share the card I've done for my nephew.  He'll be 6 on his birthday next week.  He lives out in New Zealand and I've never met him or his older brother.... but my brother, his wife and the two kids are coming over in June to spend some time.  I haven't seen my brother in 5 years so it's going to be fantastic, a chance to spend some time with him and to meet two nephews who I've never ever had a cuddle from.  It's nice Skyping but it's not the same.  Hope he likes his card!

Recipe :
Brown Card : From Stash - Purchased from Craft Outlet Spalding

Happy Valentines Day

Afternoon everyone, Happy Valentines Day!.  Only just got round to getting on the pc, had soooo many cards to open.....not  lol  At least I know there's one waiting for me from Hubby for when I get home....and not being one for surprises, he tells me there are flowers too!  lol.  My card today is the one I've rustled up for hubby.  He's not a big card person but didn't think it was fair that I was getting a card and he wasn't.  I went back to Boofle for this one as I didn't want anything too feminine.  Decided not to go out tonight, Hubby's up for work at 3.30am so we're having M&S Valentines meal for two instead, am looking forward to it muchly.  However you spend today/tonight, hope you're having a fab Valentine's Day xx

Sweet Birthdays

Evening all.  It's a tad on the chilly side tonight.  I'm busy getting sorted out for our trip to Ipswich tomorrow.  Stepdaughters birthday weekend so should be fun.  The card I've made her used a couple of the new things I bought at the Ross Papercraft show just the other week. I bought the spirals precut for the flowers and the little metal butterflies.  It's all come together nicely  lol  I also had a try at making a sweet bouquet too and again for a first attempt it's come out not too bad!
