Morning all. How are we today? I am all of a tizz this morning, have no idea why, but I was in a rush leaving home for work and forgot to bring a couple of important things with me - the day will be a struggle without them too, so I am cross at myself for being so stupid. I just have so much going round in my head at the moment that other stuff in there is being pushed into dark and cobwebby corners.
Anyway, you didn't come to hear me whittering on about early-onset, so let's get on with today's card. This is another commissioned card - best friend Pig's brother is 40 this year and his pride and joy is his motorbike, so Pig provided me with a couple of photographs and said "do what you can". I was a bit restricted by the size and shape of the photo and the colours of the bike, but here it is.
So this is an 8x8 card base
Lots of layers of orange and black to match the bike
(assortment of paper manufacturers)
The amazingly useful Happy Birthday die from Memory Box
Balloon die and stamp from MFT
Varsity numbers dies from Memory Box
The inside (which I forgot to photograph) is also orange and black with a white central panel, and a huge Happy Birthday stamp from the MFT balloon stamps set, together with a couple more balloons down the sides.
I took it round to Pig at the weekend and she said she was so thrilled with it that she wants to keep it now - I did suggest she gives it to her brother and then asks for it back in a couple of months!
Hope you have a super Thursday. Our whole department is on the move tomorrow so for the next two days we shall mostly be packing moving crates. Deep joy.
