Happy Birthday Dad and Eric


Seriously been Missing these past couple of weeks but I've been overdoing helping my DD clean and prepare her new flat. It means when I wasn't I was trying to recover but I've done what I can and I have to frustratedly watch from the sidelines now while Hubby and DD get on with the decorating.

I did make a couple of cards this one is a bit special first of all its based on a crafter who I stalk admire Birgit actually I think she is more artist than card maker her work is amazing.

My card is very closed to hers, I have used brushes rather watercolour, my boat is a Stampin Up and I paper pieced my sails with some red dotty paper. My frame is a scallop one from MFT and even though I have dies for birds the stamp I was using had birds on it, so I carefully stamped some extra ones.

The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp to finish. The card is special to me because today is my Dad's Birthday who is no longer with us. Its also my big brothers 70th Birthday so

 HAPPY BIRTHDAY
ERIC

Here he is with my sister.
