Birthday Boy

Hi there! 
I wonder if your week has been as busy as mine ... I don't seem to have stopped!

Yesterday my lovely friend Pat came for coffee and a little advice about an album she is making for her granddaughter who is off to Camp America shortly ... Pat is a novice crafter and whilst I am by no means an expert I am happy to offer advice and show her a few things I've learned ... Suffice to say we were still working 6 hours later having sorted a project for the club and having helped Pat to put together a couple of cards.

Last Saturday my DH asked me to make a birthday card for his friend of over 50 years ... he was turning 70 ... Funny thing is, though they have been close friends for all those years, neither of them know when the other's birthday is ... My DH was told by someone else ... It's got to be a man thing - all they seem to talk about is golf and football! 

So here's my card

I used the colours of the football team they support and my card is virtually all stamping ... I won a gift certificate for Gina K Designs at the Mod Squad Challenge and I ordered the Dots stamps which came so quickly ... wonderful service!

So you can see a mix of stamps here, PTI, Gina K, Basic Grey and Inkylicious
When I stamped the PTI "Yay! it's your birthday" I didn't ink the word 'birthday' - instead I digitally added 70TH to my card ... That was my starting point 

You can see that I stamped a row of those dots inside the card too and to finish I decorated a handmade envelope

I have 2 more sleeps till I'm off for a well earned break in the sun ... I've lots to do till then including my packing!
So I hope the rest of your week goes well

Be safe and thanks for looking in on me
