Hi all and good morning,
Thank you so much for the wonderful, kind comments that you left for me yesterday. I was so thrilled to see you all visit after my time away. Everytime I have had to go away for a break I come back and read your warm, thoughtful comments and I am humbled. Bless you.
Today I am back with the first of my sons birthday cards. I made this one from me and I will be honest I struggled so much with the design as my son has no major likes other than online gaming. He is a real brainbox and seems to be doing well at Uni, but I couldn't really translate that onto a card, so I thought simple styling with simple colours would be the best way to go.
I apologise for the poor photos but my camera battery was about to run out when I took the pictures and I didn't have enough time to wait for it to be charged. One thing I have just realised, I took the pictures before I put on the 21's.. I put one set of numbers above the gems (bottom, left) and the other alongside the tartan matt (top, righthand side).
As you know I love to decorated the inside of my cards to match or coordinate with the outside design and this one was no exception. I left the Spellbinders label blank inside so I had a place to write my personal greeting. The Happy Birthday was stamped to the inside too as I wanted 'SON' to be the main focus on the front of the card.
Both of the papers used here are free downloads, but unfortunately, I cannot find where I got them from at the moment. I will, however, keep looking and let you know in a future post if I find them again. I love the soft grey stripe paper as it is such a versatile paper and it coordianates with so much.
Well that's it for this post, I am off to design some new Christmas Decorative Pins and also some fabric flowers etc as I don't have my grandson today. This means I can play for longer and if I design something new and pretty I will use them for the next challenge.... I'll keep you posted on that.
Whatever you are up to today I hope it is rewarding. Take good care and have a great day.
Hugs Linda xx
