'Happy Birthday' to my Husband

Today is my wonderful Husbands birthday...and of course I had to make him a card.  I have to admit male cards are the ones I find the hardest to do, I am sure you know what I mean...LOL.  SO this is what I came up with.

I have fallen back to my old faithful set Lovely as A Tree. This set can be used for any occasion. This card is a 5.5 x 5.5 inch card. using Close to Cocoa, Punpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip colours.

I also made a holder for some gift vouchers that I gave him.

Again using the same colours to make it a matching set, but a different stamp from the set. 

and a photo of them together as a set.

Although I have used this set as a Male birthday, don't forget Fathers Day is coming soon.... it would be a great set for any Dad.  May even do this set again in different colours for my do check back and see what I do.

Stamps: Lovely as A Tree, Solid Stripes, A Bit of Birthday Cheer
Card: Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip

Unexpected time for stamping

The cricket and outdoor bowls season has started, which means I am taxi driver most weekends and evenings for my son. But today the weather has stopped play...... LOL, so guess what, MUM can play in her craft room.
This is the good side of the tale, the bad side is, it was my turn to do the Cricket tea today, so I am left with loads of food. Good job I made sure the dates on the cakes etc where OK for a couple of more weeks, so will keep until the next home game, when guess who will be doing the tea!

The weather here in Norfolk, is Rain, Rain and more Rain, trouble is it is soooooo coooold as well. It feels like December again. But I turned up the heater in the craft room and came up with these. Same design, just different colours.
