Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to anyone that's a mum, sadly, I'm not a mum but hey ho!

Anyway - I've made a couple of cards this week - the first was of course for my mum for Mother's Day.  I used myTim Holtz Caged Bird die that I had for Christmas for this one as it is a favourite of mine. I also used a Sizzix flourish die I had bought a while back but not used before.  I think a card always looks nicer with a flourish!!!  I used alot of stickles on the card to make it sparkley and some paper flowers.  The lettering was done using Tim Holtz Vintage Market Alphabet die.  Here it is

The second card that I made was for my friend Shayne's birthday.  He was 40 yesterday!!!  As I couldn't go to the party I thought I'd make him a card instead.  He has 3 Chocolate Point Siamese cats so last year when I saw a Siamese cat stamp set on offer at Joanne Sheen I bought it with his birthday in mind!  It's tough doing cards for guys at the best of times and I didn't want to make it too fussy so this is what I came up with

Have to say the cat was really difficult to colour and I could probably do with practising blending those colours abit more!  Anyway I think it came out ok and he was pleased with it.  He didn't realise I had made it until I told him and he went to fetch it for another closer look!!

A friend of mine has always dabbled with music and has always had a soft spot for 80's type music.  He has made various tracks and cd's over the years and passed them around to friends but this time he has done it properly and is selling the album and individual tracks over on itunes.  He made a fab video whilst in Melbourne.  Here is the song - have a listen - WARNING contains men kissing!

If you are interested in purchasing this or any more of the album you can do so here.
