Birthday Boys

Good morning...

It's another dark and windy day here but it's not too cold.
It also happens to be my nephews birthday and here's a card I made for him


I love playing with distress inks as you can tell 


And plenty of splattering as well

A friend's husband also celebrates a birthday tomorrow so here's one I did for him


What can I say? I love blues and greens 

 
Seems I still have more Christmas cards to do... Hubby decided he needed more yesterday!!
At least I have all my gifts wrapped and ready and my cards have been mailed so for once I am not stressing...

I hope things are going well at your end... Enjoy your day

These are beautiful Ros and love them both. I love the way your drips of water radiate out from the central glitzy sentiment and the double star looks great too, and the white embossed leaves on the second look wonderful as a background to your die cut sentiment and the added balloons and sweet little bird complete it perfectly. By the way I am very happy with the white card you recommended..great quality. x

It seems we're having exactly the same weather. It was quite a tempest here this morning, but now suddenly calm. More to follow, I'm sure. I love your cards and what you've done with the inks and splatters! It's always so pretty with the white embossing over top, too. I'm glad you're at the point where you're not stressing. Things are coming together at my end, but still lots of activity on the agenda.

Your colors, splattering, stamping and designs are Gorgeous, Ros. Love the glitter layers you added to your 1st card and the embellishments on your 2nd card. TFS my friend. Merry Christmas, my friend. Hugs, Nancy

Wow, what a fabulous background you created, Ros! I love this card! Your ink-blending and splattering are so soft and beautiful! The gold spatters and the glittery die-cut sentiment (and the stars) are so pretty and festive!
The second card is so cute and fun! The combination of positive and negative of the die-cut sentiments is interesting!

I always love to see what you do with inks...whatever kind you use. That first card is awesome. Love the splatter mixed with the patterns in the ink. The stamped leaves are really pretty on the second card and the birdie is so sweet.

Gorgeous colour combination of the blues and greens and wonderful masculine cards. You are so creative and your cards are stunning X great splats too X

Gorgeous backgrounds, Ros! Love the simple focal point on your nephew's card & what a wonderfully unique card for your hubby's friend using the negative cut for the word & using leaves & balloons together! So great you didn't stress this year. I'm going to work on that for next year--still got behind with things.
