Hi there Bloggettes! Woohooo! The sun is shining! Its officially here - Spring that is. Long may the sun shine I say. Mind you it did persist it down with rain yesterday. Still it was no matter as I had a fab day at the Northern Papercrafts Show at Harrogate. I met up with a couple of crafting buddies, the fabulous Bev and the lovely Marcea. Its always nice to meet up with fellow addicts ;)) Thanks for the thumbs on on finding the ONLY Basic Grey paper at the show Marcea! I couldn't believe there wasn't more of it to be honest. I had to content myself with a 'couple' of other bits and pieces.... like you do!
Well as I said today is the first day of Spring. Its also The Big L's birthday! Yup ma baby is 24 today. Which is quite bizarre really as EVERYONE knows I'm only 23 myself.... He's less than impressed though as he's had to work and its an extra long shift lol
So this is his card I made. I always find it a real poser to make a card for my menfolk - its not just me is it? So Dan isn't into sport, I don't think games on the Wii count as sport do they? So the 'usual' subjects for men's cards don't actually apply to him. As usual in times this this I headed over to Mo Mannings Literally an image for every occasion over at Mo's. So I got this one. Hugely appropriate for Big L! I sometimes think his games controller is growing out of his hand!
So he was coloured with Copics (of course), the paper is from a K and Co Addison pad, a spot of punching a la Martha Stewart, some Quickutz stars and Cuttlebug arrows. I did the sentiment on the computer. Oh a bit of fake stitchery with my trusty white pen.
I'm actually quite pleased with it. Oh the usual piles on my desk - lol
Now last week over at Bubbyfunk we had a conversation about what we were having for tea. We were having Rolladen - which are one of my favourite things. So especially for Janice I took a quick photo (my usual standard naturally) of mine before I ate it all! Yup every last teeny tiny piece I scoffed!
