You old fossil

He’s a lovely chap my brother in law. an all round great bloke. However. If I made him a nice polite birthday card he would think there was something wrong.

Think I struck the balance with this one. I was seriously struggling for inspiration this year but then stumbled across the great Basic Grey Archaic papers, chip stickers and rub ons in my stash. The dinosaur bones were a whole skeleton that I chopped up. Well, you’d have to be pretty lucky to find a complete fossil like that.

Anyway. Brother in law was pleased with his card even though it did call him a fossil 😮

One of my most recent projects was this owl card. It is an 8×8 card which is a size I have recently fallen in love with. The card was for my mother in law’s 70th birthday and uses the lovely patchwork owl from Papermania’s new Honey and Hugs range.

I had great fun making this card and Ma in law loved it too.

I was really pleased with this little piece of stitching. My cousin had a significant birthday last summer and is a major tattoo fan. When I saw this in a stitching magazine I just had to make it for her.

I mounted the stitching into a handbag mirror and she absolutely loved it. It was worth the hard work, which was made harder by the fact that I was having a Menieres attack at the time. Not condusive to relaxing stitching.
