Please don’t laugh when you start reading this post … I am deadly serious.
This is the start of one of my New Year’s Resolution which is to get ahead of the game with birthday cards for my family and friends in 2014.
I am always “behind throwing” when it comes to giving cards, so let me show you my first birthday card make of 2014 for my son’s birthday on the 30th October. I can show family cards because none of them look at my blog!!!
Each time I make something I am determined that it will fit in with someone’s birthday for next year (wonder how long this will last). At the moment I am in the process of making a file folder to put them all in.
I am more comfortable with doing collages and fussy cutting when it comes to making cards and this one certainly had loads thrown at it.
Not sure how my son is going to like the colour scheme but this is the way the card went and I carried on with it. To be more truthful the uber talented Dot and I picked the same stamp for our projects so I changed course mid-stream and the other will be shown at a later date (someone else’s birthday).
My son’s name is John-Paul but it has always been shortened to JP. Used another of Tim’s stencils for the initials called Cargo. Recently bought the Darkroom Door stamps, Correspondence which takes up the majority of the card, love them to bits. The men are from Flonzcrafts.
Wow one down, will probably get another one done before the resolution goes **** [CENSORED in the interests of national security] up. Can you tell that I worked at The British Embassy in Kuwait for 6 years??
