A Quick Card and a Brilliant Sunday

I had to make a quick card on Friday night as I realised that I would need to take it to David's Dad on Saturday. It's his birthday next Saturday, but he's going away for a few week's holiday. As there wasn't much time, this is the quick card I made. It's been ages since I completely finished a card in less than half an hour. To make it easier, I used co-ordinating items all from Dovecraft's Masculine Range ~ 6x6 Paper Pack, Funky Brads. Chipboard Embellishments. All that was left for me to do was put it all together and add some fibres and a greeting. I used a peel-off due to the time factor (well, it was nearly 3am!!!).

I have no photos to show you of my Sunday, but I've had the most awesome day. My niece is leaving Junior School and going to the 'big school'. Doesn't time fly? So that she has a lasting memory of being there, she's visited me these last 2 Sundays and I've helped her to make a mini-album for her friends and teachers to sign and for her to add photos and anything else she chooses. I gave her several ideas and she chose what she wanted and added her own ideas and twist on things. She's such a natural crafter that it's a joy to be with her like this (her elder brother is just the same). She decided to put one pocket on each DLO and make tags for everyone, which looks brilliant. She's going to come over in the Summer holidays and add the final touches to the book and then I'm hoping to take some photos. I did have to frisk her on the way out though as she was threatening to sneak all my stash out the door! Hmmm...... I don't think so LOL
