glitter time

So many birthdays meant a day of making cards.  Well, it didn't take me all day but they did take me a while! 

I have to make a card for my mum from me and one from my dad every year and I try to make them as different as possible, though they usually end up being her favourite colours of pink and green.  The one above was for dad to give to her.

And this one was from me.  I did the tiny knitting on cocktail sticks and broke loads of them!  I do have some knitting needles not much thicker than cocktail sticks but was too lazy to go and get them!  The charm in the bottom corner was bought at the Hobbycrafts show whilst mum was facing the other way!

Men's cards, like men's presents, are hard, so both dad's are getting the same!

I've had these metal embellishments for ages, so I just added some card and some brads, job done!

So sweet, all of them. I'm sure they made the birthday girls and boys very happy.

Your mom is going to love those cards! As will the Dad's. You've done a lovely job of them all.
