"Birthday Boy"

Welcome! Blog friends, great to have you visit.  If you have time please leave a message so I know you called.  That way I can be nosey, link back, see what you have been up to and leave comment on your Blog.  
Oh! I have just noticed I have another follower, delighted to have you on board.
Yesterday was a great day here we had a "Family Lunch" with Hazel and my other sisters (I do have more than one but that`s a whole other story) their husband the ones that were not working and our Daughter-in-Law.  We had a good lunch, interesting chat, and a GREAT laugh, a good time had by all I think.

Nothing exciting today, but you have to take to good with the not quite so good.  This was an order for a neighbour, she wanted a flat card not fussy, it had to be posted.  It is for her Grandson James.

Base card 6 x 6
Kraft Card embossed with an A4 Spellbinder Embossing Folder
Script paper from my stash
Piece of the embossed card cut using Spellbinder Labels 1
Sentiment done on the computer cut out using smaller Labels 1
I distressed the sentiment to co-ordinate with the vintage style script paper 

That`s it for today
Hopefully I will have more time to play tomorrow, where is all the time going these days.
Thank you for popping by, I really do appreciate it

  2. Good Morning Patricia, what a super card and just right for a young man. The layout and colours are fantastic, I really like the colur of the distressed ink, what is it? on my pc it looks almost a mink shade. Have a great day whatever you do, Kate x

  4. Morning Patricia, A beautiful card today, I'm loving the colours, very muted and warm and lovely, love the script paper too, will have to look out for some of that. Like Kate above, I would like to know the colour of the DI, it looks like 'mink' to me too??

  11. Hi Patricia, I think it's a great card for a young man- fab colours, really soft and your layout is great. Carole Z X

  12. Great card Patricia. Having to make things 'postable' is such a restriction but you have got some real depth with the layers/embossing without the bulk. Couldn't we all just do with having personal carrier pigeons to take our creations undamaged to their destinations? Hugs, Buttons x

  13. Lovely masculine card Patricia, great colours and love the dies


  14. This is a lovely style card Patricia :) Great male card!
