Birthday Card for Dad

Hello

June for me is birthday season, so I can now share my Dad’s Birthday Card.

I was at a loss what to do for him on his 82nd birthday so as he is ex RAF and likes planes, this is what I did…

I used my new die set from XCut.

I cut everything in white cardstock and coloured everything using watercolours…

I watercoloured the background…

I watercoloured the components…

and assembled…

Then put it all together…

The plane and ship are connected on a split pin, so they actually move around the world…

Absolutely appropriate for an 82nd birthday…I think!

TTFN.

Tumbling Leaves

Hello

I love Autumn and the sound of the leaves crunching on the ground as my dogs charge through them.  I love the beauty of the season with all the different colours; greens, reds, oranges and yellow and that was my inspiration for this card.

I started with the background using acrylic paints and a Gelli Plate.

I cut the Sizzix tree die in brown and random Spellbinder leaves in a yellow card stock. To colourise the leaves and give them more of an Autumn feel, I dabbed randomly with watercolour paints.

I arranged them on the card having ‘fallen’ from the tree and I painted the chipboard letters in the same way and arranged on brown handmade paper, which I had cut randomly.

I hope you like it.

My 1st Twinchie

Hello

I am back today to share my new addiction….Twinchies

I do not make New Years resolutions but when I discovered this “world of minatures” I was intrigued and wanted to join in.

I naturally fill whatever space there is open to me, whether it be a card or scrapbook page or doodle.  If I start with a large piece of paper I will almost always fill it.  So thinking it would be a great challenge to restrict size I started on my journey of Twinchies.

Here is one effort using a lovely stamp from Hobby Art.

I am addicted.  I cannot help myself.  The worst thing is I am even less likely to throw any trimmings away because I automatically think, “I can get a Twinchie out of that…”

I would love to hear if anyone else if a Twinchie addict.

TTFN.
