This week's efforts

As many of you might know, I stay in Bahrain and just now we are in the middle of a wave of anti-government protests. We are safe, well away from the main protest areas. However the school that I work is quite near the hospital that was at the centre of the focus last weekend. As a result we have had a few extra days holidays, but back to work tomorrow :(

Any what have I been doing with all this free time, card making of course. The first card is for my neighbours in Awali who are retiring. Will miss them heaps, but at least will see them at Sarah's wedding in August.

The second card is for Sarah's future mother-in-law. The decoupage was pre-cut which I layered up with silicone and foam pads. Mats were made using circle nestabilities - plain circle and crown circles. Finishing off with a happy birthday peel off.

The final card is for my Dad, who happens to share the same birthday as Sarah's future MIL. For this one I took out my Nested Owls nestabilities and cut an owl aperture. Then cut a larger owl aperture on a plain coloured mat. Distressing both the mat and card with Distress Ink - Brushed Corduroy. Stamped a couple of owls - BoBunny falling for you- and colouring them with a combination of Copics and Promarkets and decoupaging them. Finishing off with a couple of button embellishments.

Thanks for popping by.
