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
