Wow, its a bit on the warm side here in the UK - looks like summer might have arrived with a vengeance - we've even had to get the fan out of the loft, I'm just hoping we've not jinxed the sunshine by doing that!
We've just got home from a weekend on the Isle of Man (In-Law visiting) in time to drive over to my Bro's house and wish nephew Dan a Happy Birthday. Actually we had to buy his present too before we went - and though I'd made his card last week I didn't have time to do a photo before we left - another little job for yesterday afternoon.
Quite incredibly, it didn't rain the whole time we were on the IOM - I've been visiting for the last 15 years or so, and I think that's the first time we've stayed dry! It was even warm and sunny most of the time, though cloudy and hazy at times too. No doubt there'll be a few photos to bore you with soon......
I made another of those fab pop-up cards for Dan - tbh I was a bit stumped as to what to do and didn't really have a lot of time to think of something new. Never mind, he liked it and I noticed my bro having a quiet little look at how it works - he's not one to show much enthusiasm for my cards, he works for a Greeting Cards manufacturer and I think he regards handmade cards as cheating him out of custom lol lol Tough, I say!
Here's the card
Cosmo Cricket "Get Happy" paper pad
Bazzill card in matching colours
Craft Robo to cut all letters and numbers
Sizzix Trophy Die
thin red wire to make the springs
Now I really should stop procrastinating and make some new stuff!
Thanks for visiting
