Male Birthday



Here's a male birthday card for a friend who likes his vino. I am pleased with the way the embossing folder has given this card a rustic woody sort of feel. Click on the main picture to get a better view, some of the details don't show up too well. I covered the bottles and glass in Diamond Glaze.
I had the unusual experience today of going to buy Papercraft Inspirations (must get my subscription sorted out :) ) and seeing my cards on the cover of the magazine. I was so proud, I stopped for a coffee and read it all cover to cover, waiting for someone I knew to walk past so that I could show them......................nobody did. I had just been to get my hair done as well. Yesterday, when I looked like a witch I bumped into a chap I had been at school with. He told his wife laughingly that he had a huge crush on me when we were fourteen. She sniggered and looked totally disbelieving. Yes, well you should have met me today girlie, with new hair, full make up AND stuff in a magazine.

Great card, and well done you!! Will look out for the Papercraft Inspirations if it's out. Funny isn't it how we always bump into people when our hair is a haystack and no slap on .. and when we're feeling worth it there's no one to see for miles around LOL!!

Enfys, it was so wonderful to learn that you are featured in Papercraft Inspirations. I will look out for that mag...can't wait to see your wonderful creations. And isn't it ALWAYS the case to run into someone when we are not looking our best. Congrats, girl.

That really does look woody and fab En - loving your work girl xxx And as for the lady, well she was no doubt jealous cos she knew in her heart that you were a godess - and a published one at that lol xxxx It does always happen like that though doesn't it - when you are all spruced up you don't bump into a soul, but dash into Sainsbury's withough your face on and in your scruff and you meet everyone!! Or my 'fave' - when my house is tidy and my card stuff all sorted and neat, nobody comes, but the minute I get stuck in and it starts to look like a hamster's cage, then the world and his wife turn up!!! I think they call it sod's law xxxxxx

Fab card Enfys, love the embossing it looks just like wood!!
Ditto everything everyone else has said! The house tidy thing especially. No one ever visits when it's sqeaky clean and smelling great, only when it looks like stig of the dumps' dump and smells like a wet dog!!
It makes me feel so much better because I thought this only happened to me!
Will you be doing a 'signing' of your Papercrafts issue in Smiths? Gosh, I know someone famous!!
Well done and well deserved Enfys.
