Anyway - to stop any further waffling and digressing (please don't hold me to that), I would like to show you the card I made for Thomas' 14th birthday. Thomas and Katie are the children of my next door neighbour and I have always made them cards. Mind you it's getting more and more difficult to think of something for Thomas now that he is growing up.
This year I came up with this one, I had bought the image from Mo Manning's Digital Pencil last year (thinking ahead for once - yay!!) and I am quite pleased with the result.
I left the left-hand side free to write a little note/greeting for him.
Catherine has kept all of the cards I have made for the kids over the years, and she told me that he loved this one so I am well pleased!!
Paul Texting Digi - Mo Manning's Digital Pencil
7"x7" White card blank - Anna-Marie Designs
Satin Silver and Black card - Snippets from stash
Patterned paper - free with Magazine
Brown and Green Card - Core'dinations
Bricked (& Woodgrain) Emb. Folder - Sizzix
Chicken Wire Frame - Cheery Lynn Dies
Virtuoso Music - Memory Box Dies
Photo corners - Die-Namics
Well I shall leave you alone now, oooh apart from telling you that Blossom has been exercising (well she needs it and I don't want anyone thinking 'kettle, pot' lol) and it seems to be doing her good. She is out a lot more now that we are only having intermittent rain (for the mo) and she was standing on the lower branches of the lilac bush. This means she has either hauled herself up on her tippy toes or jumped - now this in itself would use up 500 calories I am sure!!!!! I feel certain she was watching the bird table - not for birds you understand, but for bird food!!! She had neither!!! Anyway here she is with her 'food' face on -
Sorry to you all for going on about her again but her husband keeps on at her growing waistline so I am doing my best for her. LOL!
Thank you all for checking out my blog, I do hope you pop back again soon. If you are unwell, please take care of yourselves and if you are fighting fit, stay that way!!!
Big hugs to you all
