Birthday Wishes

Hello and good morning ...
Having gotten over the shock of the returning cat (which I am calling Gypsy ... for obvious reasons) ... I now realise what I didn't miss ... and that is the meowing that starts at 4am and continues no matter what ... I fed her (numerous times) ... played with her ... stroked her ... let her out and let her in ... still she meowed ... and yes ... I tried ignoring her ... so this morning I am rather tired! 
That aside ... did you see THESE beautiful creations on Mona Pendleton's blog? ... My that lovely lady creates some stunning things ... and I immediately fell in love with the TH embossing folder she used for these cards ... so I went online and found a store in the UK called The Glitter Pot which ships for just £1 ... well I ordered there and then and would you believe that the next morning I had them? ... what a service!
As it happened ... my husband asked for a birthday card for one of his friends ... he needed it that day (typical) ... so there was my reason to use my folder straight away ... 



I was delighted at how well this folder embosses ... and I swiped my SU white ink pad over it just to give some more definition ...


His friend appreciates a glass of red wine ... so the inside of the card reads ...
"You've aged to perfection" 
and the charms are a wine bottle and a tiny corkscrew .. the text paper is Eline's Huis Roses are Red and the image is from the web 

Have yourselves a wonderful day and keep safe 

Till soon

Fabulous masculine card and very nice embossing folder.
(Our cat is the same - it will whine away for ages to get its own way..)

Love your card, Ros. that embossing folder is really nice. I can see why you like it. Embossing folders are my fav's as well. Just fabulous. As for the cat, my Daisy will wake up and cry for me(yowl really as she is a grown cat), it drives me crazy but I love her. I guess it is no different than a crying baby. Have a good rest of your day and get a nap!

Fab card Ros and what a buy! At 1 quid only? You will probably buy more there ;-) And your embellies are superb! They're a great find, too!! Please say hi to Gypsy for me ;-)

Wow ... I'm doubly shocked. The cat is back and your husband asked for a birthday card. I'm glad your furry feline friend has returned and since when do husband's ask for cards?

This one is a beauty. Masculine and obviously made with a special someone in mind. Thanks for the inspiration!
