65th Birthday

Got off my backside today and sat and made card for my neighbour's 65th birthday. He loves flowers and gardening so stamped this image of morning glory's by Stamping Up and coloured it with Faber-Castell watercolour pencils. Mounted and layered several times added bow and sentiments. Hope he likes and it doesn't look to feminine.

Again apologies for photo not getting the light right here.

I also finished off another card today for hubby's birthday on Saturday. Hadn't a clue what to do so pumped for a cat image as even if he doesn't admit it he does love cats. This was done with pop out decoupage [which is just as well as my wrists and fingers have been really sore these last few days]. Added the usual sentiments and not much else, so again, hope he likes it as not my usual.

Haste ye back........

Today I am posting the card I made for my brother's birthday. He is a golf fanatic so what's more appropriate than a picture of a golf course. It doesn't look like much in the photo but I printed off the golf scene and then decoupaged the tree which gives it more of a 3D effect.

As I said not the greatest of photos!

First of the Month

First day of September and first day of my new regime with my diabetic medicines. I now have to inject myself twice a day on top of all the different medicines I have to take so here's hoping the side effects mentioned don't last too long.
On a more lighthearted subject I have made a couple of cards but need to finish them off so will post them when they are ready.
Meantime here are a couple of photos taken while on holiday - the first one is the sun going down outside our holiday cottage in Appleby Magna and some lovely old houses in Market Bosworth

The third and fourth are photos taken while on a trip down the Avon while in Stratford.
