Good morning bloggers and visitors....

I hope you are enjoying this extended weekend and the weather is kind to you

Tomorrow is my son's 41st birthday.  For forty years he has always had 'nice, loving' cards from me but this year I've changed it.  He loves a good joke and is quick witted so when I saw this sentiment on Pinterest I thought I would have to use it.... by the way, he is not what the acronym spells!  Nor does he visit my blog but does support me on my Poppyfield Card Crafts Facebook page

This is an A5 base card in navy with a smaller panel of white then, again, navy card

I typed the sentiment onto another piece of white card and die cut and embossed it

I stamped and heat embossed the 'happy birthday wishes' then coloured the wooden letters using ProMARKER pens.  The letters were then adhered to the tag

Both tags are secured with small brads and I used the same blue pen, as on the 'N', to edge both tags

To complete the card front I added various sizes of black gems

The verse was also found on Pinterest and I stamped the 'with love' on the opposite page

I'm going to make and add a small corner pocket, to the bottom left of the left page, so that I can add cash to it

I now have another card to make from my grandson to his dad as well as making my son's favourite dessert (he prefers this to a cake) this morning, which is a 10"  chocolate raspberry meringue

  9. I would like to express my respect for your generosity giving support to folks who have the need for help with this theme. Your special commitment to getting the solution across was extraordinarily informative and has all the time helped some individuals much like me to realize their ambitions. The warm and friendly useful information denotes a lot to me and a whole lot more to my office workers. Best wishes; from everyone of us. look at these guys

  10. I was recently asked about wishes, and how much affect the the human mind has on wishes coming true. Knowing the origination of all wishes is in our individual mind, I would have to say the human mind has everything to do with making wishes come true. PERSONALIZED BIRTHDAY CAKES

  11. The birthday countdown has begun! In a matter of weeks or days, happy birthday picture messages it'll be time to say "Happy birthday" to your child. If you haven't already started preparing for your child's birthday celebration, the following list of ideas may help you find a way to create a special day for your little one.

  13. Often times, the best airline prices are found months before the travel date. Airline ticket prices are generally posted at reasonable prices and then as the date gets closer, many of the airlines will increase the prices to take advantage of last second travelers. Immobilien in Budapest

  14. When the fair goes up or down, you should receive an email. Set a target range for the airline ticket prices you want to pay and then jump on them when they are posted. Immobilien in Budapest
