Tie a Yello Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree.

Well its been a busy days with no crafting at all, so tonight I sat down and decided to complete a greeting cards challenge over at The Outlawz. It is a greeting card inspired by a song. I chose Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak tree. I like the brightness of the Daffodil Delight ribbon and the kraft card seemed the right thing for the embossed tree...and what tree is complete with out a little owl of say "hello"?

So, what do you think? Does it fit the challenge discription?
Hope you like this card I have shared today.

Birthday wishes.

Hello for today,

This is a card I have made for one of my friends who had a birthday yesterday. We met in the evening for card making, chatting, laughing and yummy pastries and cake. Hope you had a great day Alex.
This card is quite simple and uses the new in colour wisteria wonder in card stock and ink. I have also used elegant eggplant dsp. The flower stamp is from a new hostess set called Posy Punch, the sentiment is from a retired mini set. The edge is the scallop trim border punch.

Again I apologise for the colour in the photo. I just cant seem to get it correct some days.

Have a great day.

Happy Father's Day to my wonderful Dad whom I cant share Father's Day with, but he knows I am thinking of him and will see each other soon.
A Happy Father's Day to father of my two children,Trevor.

I cant show you the card I sent my Dad because I made it at class and then sent it off before taking a photo of it. The card for my husband, also made at class, is sealed in the envelope with his present. (and who was it that said Mother's Day was just money making for the shops??)

I will share with you the card I have made for my Father In Law, who has had many a caravan in his day and likes to take off travelling when he can.

The colouring on the van, leaves a bit to be desired but Oh heck, isnt it the thought that counts??

Will be back with a post later when I can photograph Husband's card to show you all.

Take care

Bright and Cheerful.

This card was made specifically to enter a challenge over at Jay Gee's Nook.

I have only entered one challenge before and that was over at Creations by Fi. this is stepping outside the comfort zone.

I have used the dress form from a stamp set in a past mini from SU, some daffodil delight dsp and retired ribbon on white card stock. I have tried to keep it clean and simple.My photos aren't all the best but here goes nothing.

Thanks for stopping by, please let me know what you think. I would appreciate all constructive criticism.


Nothing to do with stamping or craft, but this was my gorgeous girl on her birthday. 14 going on 24 most days. We went out for breakfast, then to the movies and back home for birthday cake and candles. "No photos though Mum!", but after my persisting, she gave in and allowed just a couple of photos of her on her birthday.
No birthday is the same without birthday cake and candles. Gorgeous girl asked for a sponge cake with cream and strawberries, so her wish was my command.

Take care everyone.
