A different style of birthday card


Well on this lovely day, not a cloud in the sky and wonderful sunshine.

I am thinking of all those who are aboard wondering how and when they are going to get back. We did plan to go with our friends to Grand Canary last weekend, then the Saturday flight was taken off by Thomas Cook so we decided not to go, they were booked out on the Monday flight, The holiday was for our friend who was celebrating her 65Th birthday. (Her card is further down my blog.) Unfortunately they have not been able to go and have changed their plans and have gone to Torquay this week.

Me well yesterday I was in Shepton Mallet Treatment hospital having a camera put down and I am home today feeling a bit sore but not too bad and hoping to catch up on some craft this afternoon.

I thought I would add a new design of card, I must confuse that I saw this design at the Craft shop in Millet's Garden centre in Abingdon when we stayed up there visiting my Father in Law over Easter.

When ever we go up there Vernon (hubby) and my father in law know we are going to the craft shop, I do enjoy the rest of the garden center and they sell fab cakes but its the craft shop I make for first.

Back to the card, enough of my wanderings, I took a blank card and folded in half and then took another piece same size as the front, cut an oval in it and put an acetate to make a window, then placed a bird house peel off over the window. folded each side and double sided tape and then place on the front of the card leaving a gap each side and making it bow, decorated it with peel offs and a happy birthday.

Not very difficult but something slightly different.

I hope you like my new card and look forward to seeing you visiting my blog again, if you wish to make a comment you are very welcome, all comments are always gratefully received.

Have a nice day and Happy crafting

Hugs Margaret
