Autumn & Birthdays!

October 2, 2013 at 2:26 pm 6 comments

Hey! It’s another card heavy post. This first one was for Make The Day Special
the set is called Harvest of Memories by Unity.I love cards with movement and spent a good deal of the evening snipping out around leaves! Just choosing autumnal leaves and adding a brighter colour gives it an seasonal feel with an extra ‘pop’!

The second is my lovely Dad’s Birthday card. For those of you without any die cutting machines, this card is for you. I simply found a basic picture on the Internet, copied it and made a template it. I then traced it twice on two different coloured pieces of card and adhered them together and added some twine for laces. The lettering is in fact using a Hero Arts alpha die set but you could use stamps or stickers instead.

I was going to post another one, but will save it for tomorrow.
My kids are planning their Birthdays in some detail.
Will wants to know how many days it is until his Birthday and is demanding a sleepover. I’m saying no. Way too young. He insists he’s perfectly old enough.
Jamie has many plans- they change nearly daily. The question is when do you nail it down knowing that he quite likely he’ll change his mind the day after ?
My eldest is wanting driving lessons for her birthday. Hmm. I’m not sure I have enough hair left to lose!
The other two have a fair while before their Birthdays come around again. It’s always someone’s Birthday in our house! At least there’s a regular excuse for cake.

Speaking of cake- is there a time of day when it’s ever unacceptable to eat it? ( trying to settle a debate!)
See you when I’ve picked up my car – it’s been in the garage for over a month!

    Love your Dad card – how clever !!
    There were 3 birthdays within the same week in our house , so we were pretty stuffed with cake for that period .
    It might not be a good time to eat cake at midnight – but all other hours are fine by me – LOL .

    Great cards! I love how you individually stamped each different leaf stamp and sprinkled them. Fabulous!
