I have just had a quick check on what it is was I wrote about last & noticed that I actually started with .................. "God evening" ..................
Now computers are wonderful things & I always run a spell check - but of course it doesn't work in the example above. So sorry about that.
I have been quite busy over the weekend wiht making Christmas cards & most of it them in sets. One set was for the people with whom I go to lunch once a month & the the other set was the 15 for Bob. I have also made some other Christmas cards for me. That is, the ones that I send out other than those already mentioned.
But yesterday I took a few moments away from Christmas to make a birthday card for an elderly cousin of mine - who will be 89 this week.
I was quite fortunate in the fact that I did have a a basis for his card - my demo at the CSNW meeting last Wednesday of the one layer card. I had done quite a few in those shades of blue & felt that I needed a change so I did more autumnal colours. When I looked at it the next day I knew it would be just right for the birthday card. Here it is;
The leaves are from a set by Clearly Besotted, the "Happy Birthday" is an unmounted rubber stamp I have had for ages & the flowers were from a five-petal punch which I coloured with inks similar to the strip on the card. The leaves were embossed in Moon Glow EP - Midnight Emerald Obsidian - which is a beautiful dark green.
My cousin loves his garden & I hope that he will love this card & it is not over flowery & therefore not feminine.
I will have some ore Christmas card photos for you tomorrow.
I hope your preparations for Christmas are going well. That's me for tonight. Night night.
