Happy Birthday Vernon


Today is Vernon's Birthday (my Hubby)  this is the card I made for him,   Oh why are Men's cards so hard,
We had a to go out this afternoon,  the wind has dropped and although its cloudy and for a change its not raining,  what is left on the trees as way of leaves are turning nicely into shades of gold and bronze,  its a pity the bad weather we had over the last few weeks has ruined the Autumn colours.
Anyway this is a Kanban Image I brought sometime ago I matted it onto a stripped sheet of brown card. The backing sheet which was free with my magazine a few months ago,  of  embossed wild grasses,  I think it goes well with the bird image.  I cut the card in half so the front is split and opens up to reveal more of the backing paper,   should have taken a picture of it open too,    and finished it off with gold ribbon,
He liked it so I hope you do too.
Hope you are having a nice day


  1. It is a beautiful card with the birds in a peaceful, natural setting. I like the added ribbon and the "Happy Birthday" in gold lettering, too. Exquisite!

  2. Hi Margaret,
    It is a beautiful card. Many happy returns to Vernon.

  3. Tell Vernon happy B-day and love the card, we have those kind of birds where I live they are very beautiful and rare to see, but I herd if you put out the right kind of seed they love it. A neighbor on another street used to do that and he moved away, I for got how i missed they yellow bird!

  4. Happy bird-day to your HB, Margaret. I don't feel that it is hard to make a card for men: they are already happy by the thought that you do make something for them.

  5. Lovely card! I agree, men's cards are hard to make or buy. Wishing Vernon a happy birthday.

  6. A fabulous card Margaret and just perfect for a male. I am sure Vernon loved it. Michelle x
