Happy Birthday!

 Hello Everyone, I hope you've had a good day and that if you are lockdown, hopefully you are coping okay.

It's been another gorgeous day here, a bit of  a lower temperature than yesterday, but still warm and plenty of sunshine.

Thank you for your comments on my last card and for you good wishes for both our Anniversary and Alistair's birthday, it's been a lovely couple of days, and we've had such beautiful cards.

Here is the birthday card I made for Alistair;

A whimsy stamp and stamped in green ink, matted on to a purple and rose gold card, the base card is a kraft one.  He's not been canoeing for a while, he and his friends used to go a canoe trip a couple of times a year. I think they all  feeling a bit too old for it now, shame as everyone loved it and had a great time. Anyhoo, Alistair liked his card.

Just a short post tonight, so I will love you and leave you till next time, keep yourselves safe,

That is a really lovely card and would look great mounted in a frame. Day 2 of lock down here. The Doc is annoyed as his haircut has been cancelled. Fortunately for me the Dentist is allowed to be open so my tooth review went ahead. Surgery for the new implant is now scheduled for next week. Hugs Mrs A.

Hi Kate

Pleased you have both enjoyed your celebration days. Special times that are meant for enjoying and making the most of.

I am not surprised Alistair liked his card ... it is great .. .. and so lovely the image will hold special memories for him.

The image looks great stamped in green. Why do I never imagine any image in anything but black or grey?!?!?

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and stay safe and sound.

This is a really nice manly card. I never would have thought to stamp it in a colour and not paint it in. It really looks great.

Hi Kate,
Happy Birthday to Alistair hope he has a great day.
Your card is so brilliant and what find that stamp was and so appropriate too.
The design is fab and such a lovely selctionn of colours.
Such a pity about the canoeing trips I remember when you used say he was off on one and wondered how he managed it at his age.
Such an action Man you have there.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
