Happy Birthday Gail 2012


ooo a bit of a sad weekend ... it would have been my lovely sister's birthday today ... 29th June 1959 she was born ... but she was taken from us following an horrific car accident ... anyway enough of all that ... this is the little card I made for my dear Mum ... I always send a little card just to let her know we are thinking about her ...


Mums Mum ... my grandmother grew up in and around the New Forest and was living at one time in a little cottage called Wisteria Cottage in Midhurst ... My Mum has pictures of the cottage and I must grab one next time I am there and scan it ... she also has a photo of her Mum standing in the garden of the cottage ... I guess its when you get older that these things mean more to you ...

the card I made was supposed to look like Wisteria Cottage and I did a bit of cloud and sun masking with chalks ... the cloud went a wee bit wrong and I did a bit of masking with the tree cottage and fence which went a bit wrong too ... coz the tree looks like it is hanging in thin air ... oh well its not bad for my first try I guess ... the little stamps were a freebie a while back in one of the magazines ... have not used them so gave them an airing ...

hope you are all having a great weekend

here is the card ... oh and the insert too ... love the words ... not my own creation but thank you to the original poster





this is the back of the card ... just to let pinkjools know that I do use the lovely stamp she kindly sent me ...
