Happy Birthday

 



Welcome to the latest challenge at Make My Monday where the challenge chosen by Debbie is Happy Birthday.

I love pretty feminine images, sadly the ones I have rarely get an outing, as I need about 6 masculine cards to each feminine one, it gets harder to create cards which feature hobbies/ sports particular to the recipient. This card will remind my hubby of the work we had  preparing firewood for the 2 wood burning stoves in our last house, hubby and I spent hours preparing the logs for the fire. Below is a picture of the last 2 loads we had delivered on the same day approx 45 tons. Hubby is so glad that we don't have all that work to do now, but does miss the stove.

Washi Tape at MMM



 



Welcome to our latest challenge at Make My Monday where Dawn would like to see cards or projects using Washi  tape. I have bought several different washi tapes over the years but am always at a loss of how to use them. I originally used the tapes above at Christmas to decorate parcels, so decided to use some of what was left to decorate some tins I use for storage.

 Having moved from a rural setting last year I chose to depict a view similar to the one from my kitchen window.Most cottages have been upgraded and extended,but little else has changed.I added the deer as the evergreens in the garden were often eaten by them when we had a lot of 
snow.Digital stamp from La Pashe with a touch of watercolour to the sky and buildings.
