Happy Birthday Walshie!


How are you this lovely winter's day?

I had a couple of urgent cards to make  this week but first, I needed to move my craft room into the other spare bedroom.   The layout of the first room put my desk under a window and it was so warm and the light so bright,  I just couldn't work.  This room gives me better wall space on two walls with a smaller window. I think it will be a much happier space........well I hope so cos I don't fancy moving everything including a bed around again!!!

My 'boyfriend' celebrates his birthday today, one urgent card is for him :-) .  We plan to spend the day at his favourite place with breakfast and a walk around the bay.  Fingers crossed this lovely weather lasts.

Whilst moving stamps around I came across my LOTV folder, such pretty little designs I couldn't resist stamping out a few to colour.  I chose this one for Ian........

It's been so busy these last couple of months with the move, Disney and his/our friends moving to the area!
I know when he sees his card he'll say something like......."chance would be a fine thing"  haha!

I coloured with my Prisma pencils and layered this card, adding some cork for the Birthday Sentiment as well as some AnnaBelle twine.............

Kind of a sweet male card......Happy Birthday Walshie  xoxo
