Something Different

Hi all

Something different this time, well for me anyway, a man's birthday card, and I must admit they are a lot quicker than girls cards, I think I fluff around way too long on arranging the flowers on a girls card, but no flowers to be seen on this card!!!

The base layout is based on a card by Mindy Baxter, the papers are Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby, the image is Lilly of the Valley Die Card (big thanks to Dianne for letting me pinch it from her) actually I had to beg, borrow and steal a few things for this card, borrowed some more seam binding from Rachel to do the bow on the inside and also borrowed a few more large pearls from Dianne as I didn't quite have enough.  Its great when a few of you get together to do a big order from somewhere cause then you know others have the same things and you can swap stuff when you run out :)

Some close ups.......

The clock is from Prima's Antique Mirror range, so cool!!!

The Happy Birthday letters are Kaiser Craft's mini aphas.

The insides.......

Close ups.......

and the back.......

Close ups of the metal embellishements from Wild Orchid Crafts which are soo cool.......

This card was given to one of my workmates husband for his 70th, they had a big party last night, with family and friends coming from all over our country (New Zealand) and some from Australia, so when I got home from work on Friday I made some gluten free chocolate cupcakes and apple muffins and took them up with the card latter that night. Roger was thrilled with his card and they all thought the cupcakes & muffins were fab.  So that was great!!!!

Overall I made 8 1/2 dozen cupcakes and muffins this weekend and have given most of them away, it's way too dangerous to have them in the house, only want to eat them and thats a big no no at the moment!!! :(

Well thanks for taking the time to look at my card, hope you like it.  Make sure to check the other girls blogs out they do awesome stuff!!!!

Catch ya's later


  1. Fantastic card Jo I love the clock on there too.
    Yay for the cupcakes and muffins but i didn't see any at my place - sorry I can't have been home when you called, but I am home now for the rest of the weekend he he

  2. Super Card Jo. Love it all and I am sure the lucky birthday boy would have too. Thanks for the post - I might just have to scrap lift some of it for a Dad's card which I will be making this week.
