3 cards one birthday.... and a sick me - not a partridge in a pear tree!

Well I was meant to be at work! 
I love my job and am really fed up if ever I can't go...
(for those of you that don't know I work in a fantastic Craft shop)
(Penrith Crafts)

So today as I left home to walk to work I just got out side my front door and was sick! :0(
lovely hu! Not sure why and keep feeling dizzy and have been sick a few times 

But as ever on a good note as I always try to find a good note I went back to bed for a couple of hours and then have sat quietly this afternoon and made a couple of cards

The cards are for a friend who's turning 70 and his wife asked me to make her a card for him, then I need one to send him to of course and then yesterday his wife's friend phoned me to ask if I could make her a card for him too!

soooo here is the first card..
This one is from us as he loves puffins
and I love this one looks like he is doing a happy dance
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - One for the Boys
Stamp with Fun - Birthday
 Sweet Stop - SKETCH* - Plus - Winged Things I have flipped the sketch so it will work with my image :0)

Card 2


Card 3
This one is for his wife to give to him, I'm not sure you can see it but I added his name and age to be to the fuel tank on the bike.

  • Paper Sundaes - Texture 
  • 2 Sisters - bingo- die cuts/punches, embossing & ribbon 
  • Sketchy Colors - Sketch - I rotated the sketch one turn to the right to accommodate the motorbike image
 This card is for my friends husband and he LOVES motorbikes too, I have embossed and used paper tearing to add texture and also some ribbon and twine, the sentiment is a Tim Holtz ticket tag think Uma sent me a couple of those, thanks hunny :0)

Still feeling a bit rubbish, not eaten anything just plenty of water!
but at least I did not waste the day totally, so tired and sore now..
see you soon :0)
