Happy Birthday for Someone Special

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

The weekend is before us. I hope you have something nice planned. The Easter Holidays have started for me. There is so much I want to do most of it is for the wedding. Tomorrow I am taking a day out and we are heading off early to go to Ally Pally. I do love that craft show. It should be fun. On Sunday we are seeing family. I do feel that over the next few months my blogging is going to get more erratic but sometimes life just gets in the way.

I have been trying to keep ahead of my makes and I made this card for a special someone. Their birthday isn't till August, what with the wedding in July and us going on holiday soon after, I wasn't sure when it would get made. I do like to be organised.

This is one of my 8"x 8" cards. I choose the image first and then I found the fabulous paper in my stash. I cut all the mats and layers to match the colours in the image. 

Sometime I struggle to put sentiments on cards. I do find this round stamp useful as it doesn't take too much room. I cut it and it mats and layers with some tonic circle dies. 

I made yellow poppies, with the Tranquil Poppy die by Creative Expressions. to reflect the flowers in the image. 

This gorgeous image is another by Pollyanna Pickering. I have a pack of images that I use from time to time.  The eagle eyed amongst you might have noticed the card I made with the left overs from this card a little while ago. 

I just have to remember where I have put this card when the time comes. 

Enjoy your weekend, whatever you are doing. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
