Hi All

I needed to make a special fun card for my brother- in- laws 60th Birthday and I came up with the following card. Initially I matted and layered the images onto three shapes I had cut on my cricut machine. Unfortunately my husband thought that this was a little fussy so I cut the layers  down to two, I must agree that they looked much better. I wanted the card to take him through stages of his life so the first one was of a young boy.

Image was a free digi
Kanban Card
Papermania paper
Coloured with promarkers

The second Image was of a young man.

Stamp free digi image.

The final part of the card was for an old man and the letters were cut out on my cricut machine, and  I used the storybook cartridge.

As you can see I changed the heading on the card from old man to old G?? not very nice but it will make him laugh.
Well that it for tonight.

Hi All

I forgot to post this picture of me at the Harrogate flower show. I went with Hugh and we both had a great day out.

This is just one of the many flower displays on show. We spent the whole day at the show and I was exhausted at the end but the day was well worth the effort.

Here we go for my second posting today a special little Bear.

I think he is so cute and the colours all match so well.  I shall have great pleasure in producing him again.
The bear was a free digi stamp and I used my pro-markers to colour  him. So there you go Pauline a second posting just for you.
Hi All

I went to my cricut club on Saturday and had a most enjoyable day cutting out background from my friend Fiona's cricut cartridge paper lace I used it as a background for one of my cards and here it is.

My Friend Pauline was moaning at me for not posting to my blog more often so just for her I will post two cards today.
