Today I have made this card for my DH for his 65th birthday next month. I tried to make it yesterday but it just wouldn't work and then today it all went together just as I wanted. As you can guess from the card Music is his 'thing' so I hope he likes this card.

Sunday 5 June

Had quite a productive day today. I made 5 cards for swaps which I obviously can't show until they arrive. I also made this for a birthday card. I used a sketch that a friend sent me. The brown central paper is sprayed with mica pigment to make it sparkle. The lilac/white horizontal strip is cut from a tissue box and the oval topper is 'recycled' from another card. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of white card which I tore and then inked the edges with distress ink. I hope you like it.

Not crafting today. Fell down in the street yesterday when I was walking Minstrel. Have a very bruised and skinned knee and bruises in various other places. Hope it is better by tomorrow as I have my card making group at church. I am sure that God will enable me to get there.

Saturday 14 May

Had a bit of a nightmare this morning when I was walking my dogs. First Minstrel, the younger one decided to run away and it took me ages to get him back. While I was looking for him Merlin couldn't see me so he wandered off and then nearly got run over. Very stressful start to the day but it did improve later!

Thursday 12 May

I was asked by a friend to make a card for her to give to her son on his wedding day. I have never made a card for someone to give to someone else before so was a bit apprehensive. I made 4 cards for her to chose from and these are the 2 that she has chosen. She loved these 2 so much that she is going to give hime both of them. I would love to read your comments about them.
