Another fine day and now the sun is out its getting warm again, although we have had a very small amount of rain my garden is still dry but I am not complaining we brought the weather back with us from Tenerife and I hope the rest of the summer will be as nice as is has been over the last week,
This first card is stitched on a peel off and beads added and then placed on a cream card with peel offs to finish
This card is a little different with a rub on design of deer which I have made for a male. These rub offs have a shiny design and are lovely but hard to add as I am finding them difficult to rub off I do feel like complaining to QVC which is were I brought them from.
This flower shape card is different from the usual designs, I used some paper that was free with a magazine and then a peel off flower base and then put a smaller one on acetate and placed on top with a bow of ribbon, finished off with peel offs.
This gold card although the picture does not look like a gold card but it was. I have used a peel off flower placed on parchment and then embossed and attached with a brad, the ribbon and brad match and again finished off with gold peel offs
This card again was a gold card and again it does not show up I don't know why, they were photoed in good light. Anyway the fan is the middle of the fan card made from the Glitter Girls boards, Which I cut out the sections and used them on this card, nothing is wasted. Each section was then punched out with a punch and used a brad to fasten them onto the card with red flower gems. The Chinese symbols are love and happiness and peel offs to finish off
This design I saw in a magazine but as usual I got the idea from them but have done my own thing with it, the vase in silver paper has green ribbon tried around it with the butterflies some flat and some on acetate with wings flying. As usual peel offs to finish off
This again is a gold card with the bodice of gold stitching on a stitching peel off and red and gold ribbon, a feather for the skirt and red flower paper back ground and again peel offs to finish off.
I hope you like my new selection of birthday cards, I try to make something different and unusual and I hope they are.
Before I finish I will add this little story from my holiday, I brought some post cards in a shop this youngest man asked if there was anything in my locket, my husband gave me the locket before we were married and we have never got around to adding a picture, I said no, so automatically I never thought any more of it, he said if I took it off he would put his picture in it, Yuck, I politely said no and left the shop I could not believe that anyone would even think of wanting to put their picture in someones locket that they did not know. I don't know how he could ask seeing my husband was only a few feet away. Remember my piece when I had lunch with Angie in Castle Cary recently.
I have not forgot my promise to write some more about Tenerife and hopefully it will be added soon. In the meantime I hope you are all well and enjoying the lovely weather.
Until the next time you visit my blog, take care
