Monday was my daughter Alex's 16th birthday. We celebrated by having a day out in London where we crammed in loads and loads and saw the fabulous show Wicked in the evening.
I made this card for her, very much inspired by Valerie who popped a fairy into her TH bird cage, so I cut out a photo of Morris (being Alex's most favourite thing in the whole world) and put him in the cage looking up at a die cut bird.
My DS also wanted to make his big sister a card, so he came with me into my Crafty Corner (eeek!) and selected which papers he wanted to use, and which techniques he wanted to try - he inked all his papers, he rounded all his corners, he chose which brad, which alphabet, which shape for embellishing, and he was really chuffed with the end result. I was very proud of him, and I think that Alex appreciated that he had taken the time to make her a special card. Don't ask why it is that he calls her "Bizn" - even he doesn't really know the answer to that!!! Poor Alex has so many nicknames, very rarely is she actually called Alexandra!
Today, my OH has taken the kids to Splashdown in Poole which is not my thing at all, so I have had a day at home, walking the dogs, a little housework and crafting this afternoon! I am delighted to have some bits to show you in another post or two until I can get back to regular crafting!
