Sorry to have been a bit lax about the blog lately but we are in the midst of decorating and it is taking much longer than we anticipated. We also celebrated my Husband's birthday last week and I overcame my fears and had a go at the dreaded masculine birthday card. I went for a kraft, cream and brown colour scheme, and a CAS style and came up with this;-
I used the Happy Banner from Papertrey Ink and placed brown letters in the aapertures. The stamp is from a NBUS set from Wplus 9 called Just Geometrics: Triangles and I stamped it with Versamark Ink and clear embossed it. As this wasn't going in the post, I added a pewter buckle from the mountain of embellishments that I now rarely use and finished off with a few tiny gold acrylic glitter spots. In fact the spots are so so subtle that I bet you have difficulty 'spotting ' them! Sorrreee - I couldn't help it. He had a lovely day and we went to see a show at the Opera House called Eric and Little Ern - it brought back so many happy memories of Christmas Morecambe and Wise Shows.
