My friend John's Birthday Card.

Morning everyone, not a nice day. Feeling so much better now, hopefully getting over this bug that seems to be hitting everyone.
Made a card this morning for a male work friend who's birthday is tomorrow - talk about cutting it fine. I am now watching the Rugby just so much joy to see England and Scotland play I want England to win. It will be just nice for them to win the grand slam.
When I was at the Craftbarn last week Christine Dark was there demoing such lovely backgrounds with Distress inks and Katzelkraft stamps. I used her idea of spritzing some distress ink colours on a stamp block and then putting it on the card. Then on the main card I put two colours of the brick wall with the spritzing technique again also the Penny fathing man so he looked like he has a shadow n the wall.  The little gold dew drops I got ages ago on ebay.
Well at the moment England has 9 and Scotland 6 and I am off to watch the rest of the game.  Love and Hugs to all. Have a lovely Sunday.


  1. Glad you're feeling better Jo and WOWEE, your card is fantastic, I love what you've done with the spritzing technique and the colours you chose, I'm sure your friend will love it. Will email you later. Hugs, Chris xx
