I had a busy day at work on Saturday and then watched the rugby, shame England lost the Six nations to Ireland but what a way for O'Driscoll to end his career in professional rugby. It was a great competition this year with some very close run matches.
Yesterday I got together with some of my crafting buddies but more of that tomorrow. Today I am concentrating on yesterday for another very special reason......
It was my eldest boys 15th birthday!
Where did that time go?
He had plans during the day as he has just started doing his Duke of Edinburgh's award scheme so was out with his mates walking and map reading. He wants to have his friends over for a beach BBQ for his treat so I have suggested leaving that until the weather improves nearer the summer.
It felt really strange not dashing about organising a party of sorts and actually being out crafting too....but he wasn't bothered. #Growing up!
I decided I would use a rubber stamp from LOTV I bought a while ago to make his birthday card of a little boy playing a guitar, he loves his music. However once I stamped it and coloured it I just wasn't happy with it.....I didn't feel it was grown up enough. So what to do?
I had a limited time span to play so had a wee look on Pinterest for inspiration.
I must at this point thank Labullard for her inspirational card and set to work on my own version using my trusted dies.
I have used Spellbinder dies Classic circles and Labels 25, plus Sizzix egg dies and SU tag punch, framelits dies & stamps. I've distressed the edges with tea die and embellishments from my stash.
This card was great fun to make and I was really happy with the finished article but was was even better my son thought is was fab.
It only remains for me to wish you all the best this Monday I am away for a cup of tea and to make a bespoke card. Then I have an appointment in the kitchen....new floor fitted at the weekend and the dust!
Kitchen cupboard cleaning time, yawn! Can you tell how much I love housework?
It so gets in the way good quality crafting time.
