My brother-in-law turned 70 yesterday and we celebrated today at the local pub. Great time had by all. Here's the card I made for him. He is an avid golfer and I could have made several different cards but I saw one on Pinterest and it spoke to me so here's my take on it.

Just this past weekend Tom and I eat to two different birthday celebrations. One for my cousins wife who turned 60 and one for a good friend who turned 65.

Time flies when you're busy, busy, busy! I just don't know where the time goes. Got right up and flew away!!! LOL😆 its been some time since I had a class. I miss it terribly but something seems to always pop up and then I don't get on it like I should. It's like a bad diet! You start, get side tracked, then say f@&# it! I've been keeping up with all the new stuff and want to play more. Easter is around the corner so I have a bunch of cards to make for it.
I will also be decorating the tables and hall fo Easter breakfast again this year so I hope I can come up with some new decorations of sorts. Kind of tires of the old grass and chocolate egg thing in the table centre and a single vase with a flower look. Pinterest here we come!
Maybe something like this? But in Easter colours? Ya, I think that might work.

Oh my gosh! I remember doing these quite a few years back...2009 if I'm not mistaken. Turns out I had stamped a whole pile of them but never completed...until now! Love how that deep deep purple, Blackberry Bliss works with quite a few. Who doesn't like a blast from the past mixed with the way of today?
Also known as raised velum was this weeks class. Although I didn't have the best stamps to use for illustration, I think they turned out pretty darn goodthough. This was a fun technique and could be used for just about any sentiment. Not too sure about a manly card...really have to put my thinking cap on for designing one of those.. I have been really inspired these last couple of weeks by so much. Hope I don't lose the inspiration! Here are some of the cards I made for class.

I just found the most wonderful type of background creations for cards. It's called watercolour Bokeh and although it's a it time consuming, I love the outcome. I think I made one in almost every colour. This card I am sending off Stae side for a birthday to a gal I don't even know. I hope she likes it when she gets it. I also taught this in class a couple weeks ago. So much fun!
