ANOTHER GRANDSONS BIRTHDAY CARD

Good evening dear blog friends and visitors.
May I say a big welcome to my 2 new followers and thank you
for choosing to follow my blog.
THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments on my work
I very much appreciate everyone that you make.
My last card even got me comments from the Netherlands and
Moscow.

After this card I will not be posting any cards for a while as I
have to rush to Wales to see my Dad.
Not good news I'm afraid and my sister needs my support.

This card I made for my grandsons birthday on the 5th of March
4 days before my birthday.
It is a variation of one I did for my other grandson in January.
I finished it off today, something made me want to finish today,
and I realize now what was urging me on.

Thank you again for your visit.

CATCHING BUTTERFLIES

Good afternoon to all you wonderful and talented craft friends
and visitors.
THANK YOU for all the wonderful comments on my last
card.
I hope the weather has been good to you where you live.
It has been very cold in Kent and windy too, the temperature 
hardly got above freezing today.
The yellow thing in the sky that warms us up made a short 
appearance for about 15 minutes around lunch time.
It could have given us a few more hours of sunshine now
couldn't it.
Well never mind there's always tomorrow maybe the sun will 
shine a little bit longer, but then again it could rain or throw
that horrid white stuff at us.

My card today I made with a freebie image from the Whoopsi 
Daisy Images.
I do actually buy some too. lol.

Click to enlarge.

Now the inside.



This card was made with papers from docrafts Papermania 
Capsule Collection.

round the image, the image was coloured in with Flexmarkers.

stash and also the chipboard flower.

a wonderful caring craft community. 
I am so glad to be able to be part of it.

everything off and has developed into all sorts of other problems
for him.
