Happy Birthday Evan


Hi everyone.  Sharing a card I made a little while ago to celebrate my oldest son's birthday.  I wanted to make a CAS card for him, and I thought he'd love the crackled oak leaves.  The strip of cork adds lots of texture.

Also thought I'd share a recent photo of Cooper (Evan's son).  He's eleven month old now ... time is flying by! :)  This was taken at the end of October .... :)






Hope you're all having a great weekend!  :)

Your CAS card is so pretty Loll! I love the crackly leaves, they are just beautiful to me. I also love the cork, been seeing it all around and I'm thinking I am going to have to get me some of it. lol Cooper is darling with the pumpkins! My eleven moths old already?! Time flies doesn't it, our youngest granddaughter is will be 10 months in about 3 weeks. I don't know where the time has gone but it goes by fast and the little ones grow so quickly. Have fun and enjoy him Loll! Hugs, Brenda

Hi Loll,

Stunning card, love this. You know me I love anything Autumn and your leaves are fantastic.

Loll Thank you ofr your message on my stained glass, so kind. I have looked at your amazing pieces of art WOW! and double WOW! They are absolutely stunning, I know how long these must have taken, hopefully these will stay with you always. The trees one is very atmospheric and the Owls, well what can I say, there are no words to describe their beauty. Whilst they now may be back in your care, knowing how much joy they must have bought the recipients must be a comfort to you, and like you said they hold happy memories. Shame about all your own getting broken were they UN-fixable? i would love to have the space to do this again but sadly not at the moment.

Take care,

Love & Hugs
