Mam's Birthday

My final family birthday card is for this year is my Mam's, two days before Christmas. Needed to get it done before I fly home for Christmas on Tuesday and won't have any cardmaking stuff with me.

The image and backing sheet are from a fellow imag-e-nationer, Jade Woodward. Mounted the image of the young girl on the same backing paper and gold pearlescent card. Printed the sentiment off, and used the classic rectangle nestabilities to cut it out, then mounted it on the same gold cardstock, the mat cut using the scalloped rectangle nesabilities. Finishing the card off with cream organza ribbon.

Silver Wedding Celebrations

Billy and I celebrated our Silver Wedding Anniversary in October but due to work commitments we didn't have the celebration party till the middle of November. We had a great night surrounded by family and friends, about 90 in total.

We did say to everyone that rather than giving us a present, that they put in a donation to Think Pink Bahrain and as a result we raised BD500 (almost ₤900). We also arranged for a photographer to come along from Bahrain This Month, one of the monthly magazines in Bahrain to take some photos, some of which have appeared in the December edition of the magazine.

Tuesday's efforts

Haven't made cards for ages, so settled down this morning to get a couple of outstanding orders done.
This one is for a 60th birthday for a guy who is very much into vintage cars and Harley Davidsons. Printed off a photo of an vintage card and mounted it on red and black cardstock. Used the same red and black card for the sentiment. Under the car put the Harley Davidson slogan - 'It's not the destination, it's the journey'.
The second card a female on this time. Used Bo Bunny cardstock 'Cosmic snowdrop' to the backing and mats and Bo Bunny's Cosmic Poppy for the flower - Bosskut Large Daisy - and finished off the flower and mat with dewdrop gem stones. The sentiment was silver peeloff coloured with a green peeloff marker pen.
