Davey's Birthday Card. . . . . . . .


Good morning everyone. Hope all is well with you and yours?

Typing this on Sunday evening with beautiful sunshine streaming through the windows. The day started off sunny so I had washing out bobbing in the breeze then had to make a dash outside as it slung it down for 10 minutes, then sunshine again so everything got re-hung out again . . . . .Grrrrrrrr. Mind you, a month ago, I wouldn't have been able to "dash" anywhere so every cloud (literally lol!!!) and all that.

Now, as promised , here is Davey's birthday card that I made from the Ducks. Yes, it did take some composing but as it was a special birthday, one has to push the boat lol!!!
He was in Oz for his birthday and I have to correct a statement I made about him, on an earlier blog post, about him mounting Ulhuru. Apparently, its not the done thing to do as its sacred to the Aborigines, so he didn't.
He did, however mount The Three Sisters. . . . . . . .make of that what you will lol!!!

He is currently on yet another holiday to Romania and Bulgaria. . . . . . . .I did say he was the Alan Whicker of the Midlands.


Ingredients
White and various shades of blue card (8x8 size card)
Presscut Square dies
Memory Box Alphabet dies
CE Linen embossing folder (still waiting for details on that Sandy)
Darice Chevron embossing folder
John Lockwood sentiment stamps
Mei Flower ribbons
Peacock Feathers DI
Teeny pearlage and bling


I know its perhaps a little OTT but I wanted it to be big and bold. Its very dimensional so maybe not one for posting below a large letter rate.
You could do it in pinks (or lilac Christine lol!!!) to feminise it too.

Well, better scoot as have tea to heat up and then giving Mr D a haircut after. . . . . . . and he never tips!!!

Thank you as always for your kind comments and I hope this week is a kind one to you all.
See you Thursday for a new MAWTT challenge.

Ps . . . . .Anticoagulant clinic went well and the nurse was helpful with the couple of issues I'd had. Karen, I'm on one of the newer drugs rather than Warfarin so thankfully don't need to have my INR checked as they're not affected by diet. Still waiting for the Cardioversion appointment.

  9. Ang, this card made my jaw drop in a very unladylike way! It is so bold, so dimensional, so geometric!! The young man will be knocked out by it! That is to say, once he's had his rest from mounting the three sisters. Who, by the way, I commend for sharing. Davey must be very special as it's hard for women to share, especially sister women. But that's an essay for next lesson a week Wednesday. Glad you are getting some sunshine, however, interkittenly, and I'm glad to hear you are up to doing some dashing! I'm keeping you in my thoughts and prayers as you wait for your cardioV appointment! Lots of hugs, Darnell

  11. So glad to hear that your health is improving Ang. Wow that is a card and a half is it not. A definite statement, I love the colour combo and the embossing. I am sure Davey must have been impressed.
    Hugs

  12. Hello Ang,
    A striking card today and I'm sure Davey enjoyed it, but maybe not as much as he enjoyed the Three Sisters!! I don't know what he's taking but I think I need some.
    Good to hear that you are able to do things a little easier, and hope that the cardiowhatsit appointment comes soon. I'm away on Friday to have my eye checked after the cataract op, and then they will decide whether they are going to do the other eye. I hope so, I'm walking like a drunken sailor - well not much change there then!!!
    Take care, don't dash around too much.

  13. Hi Ang

    What a lovely 'abstract' design, ideal for the males in our lives

    I'm a little concerned about the 3 sisters being mounted... poor gals ;)

    Take care
