having a bit of fun...

I follow a blog called A Piece of Heart. I really like this blog because the lady writing it has the unique ability to find just the right thing to say. She has a blog feature called the Friday Freebie and each Friday she has a sentiment to give away. I have used many over the time I have been following her, but when I saw her offering a few months ago I immediately decided it was a project in the making but, as with everything, it has taken me a while to get around to it.
A while ago I moved my Craft Room lock, stock and barrel, downstairs into our old dining room to give my teenage son more space. He is very into IT and Fitness and he disparately needed more space than his bedroom alone would allow. I am happy to have my craft space here as I now no longer have to carry the dog up and downstairs to be with me when I work and craft. The only problem is that I don't have a door. I have to keep things tidy....well I try to! This is my little bit of rebellion to hang above the entrance...

Birthday Boy...and Girl!

Toady is my Son, Dan's Birthday! and it also mine....yes 19 years ago today he was MY birthday present.
Here is the card I have made for him this year.

I haven't made a sliding easel card for ages, so I fancied doing one again. As a normal 19 year old he is into music, computers, personal fitness (in a bit way) and is usually to be found in a hoodie...hence the image on the card. The card base is made from Papermill White Linen card, which has been printed with an image from a CD called Not For Girls, appropriately enough. I love this Papermill card, it has a great texture, which shows especially well if you ink it at the edges as I have here. I hope he likes it.
