Happy Birthday Anne - and some winners.....

Today is my very good friend Anne's birthday. I made her this card using a shop window from the Fabulous Fellas CD by Katy Sue Designs - no she is not a fella (but she is a fabulous friend) but she is an artist, and I just loved this little bow window art shop. All the elements were cut out using my other new best friend the Scan N Cut. I used some acetate from packaging materials I'd salvaged to make the windows. The little pot is air dried clay, made with a mould also by Katy Sue

Happy birthday Anne xxx  






I hope you didn't go into chocolate overload yesterday? We did the egg hunt thing just before the heavens opened, what a soggy day it was for us. My son had bought some gadget for himself that six year old Max was very taken with (something to do with phones, I haven't a clue.....)
'Daddy, when you are elderly, can I have this please?'
'Your daddy may still need it when he is elderly Max' I pointed out
'No, old people just sit in a chair and watch TV. He won't need this then...' 
A whole generation written off in a single sweeping sentence uttered by a six year old!

Now on to the winners of the various giveaways I posted last week. Firstly for the (slightly used) Polkadoodles Paper Boutique CD. The names were all chosen using random.org, and the one that came up for this prize was:

Hi Enfys, Wow what a fantastic tip for making the mats sticky again, that will prove to be an invaluable method for me, thank you so much!

I love all of the cards, the robot would be perfect for my little grandsons.

I would love to win the CD, thank you for the opportunity.

I have a friend in Australia who recently got a Scan N Cut, so I sent her to see your posts. I'm sure she'll love them. I'd love the DVD. Which is great since I'm in the US;) You are so sweet to bring some Michaels things for your European friends. I'm sure they'll love them. TFS Hugs, Jess

Congrats to you all, if you can email me with your address your goodies will be winging their way to you

Gorgeously detailed card. Your friend will love it! I love the little pot. Congratulations to the winners xx

WOW OH WOW ... now that is an amazing card. I love the windows with all the art bits inside. I have no doubt your artist friend, Anne, will adore it.

Nope, there was no chocolate overload here ... however, we did have an overload on eggs. Bacon and eggs for breakfast, egg salad sandwiches for lunch, and deviled eggs to accompany out delicious ham dinner.

Max may be a young man of few words, but he sure has packs a wallop into them, doesn't he. His comments sure make me smile. I do hope all his wonderfully insightful comments ... one day when he is elderly, sitting in a chair and watching TV, he just might enjoy reading them. Perhaps he will find them as amusing as we do. *wink*

CONGRATS to all the winners, I am sure they will each enjoy their new treasures!

Yeah, the old mat almost looks new again. At least it is as sticky as it was when new. I am anxious to give it a try now. Thank you for the info. And the card you made today is beautiful. You are very talented.
