Back from my holidays and enjoyed the rest, the weather
could have been better but there you go nothing I can do

I visited South Wales, Milford Haven and to my surprise
I was contacted by the lovely Andree AKA Ace Cards

  crafting class every Wednesday morning at In House Crafts
and would I like to go along.  Well the answer was yes
and I had a wonderful morning, met some lovely
ladies and had a mixed media class.  we created a
tag ( I will show later). I cannot thank Andree, the
ladies and Cheryl the owner enough, who all made me
feel very welcome. After the class Andree and I had
a fabulous lunch.

It was a great morning and once again Andree
thank you.  So if you are going anywhere near
Milford Haven, go into the Marina and call
in the shop and say hello and a browse  as they
may be a small shop but its like Aladdin's Cave
and they are so helpful.

Right back to the business of the day.

Majestic Stallion

Good Morning,

My Crafty Friends, Visitors and Follower,


Today we are starting our first challenge of the year
 226 over at :-


The challenge theme is

BIRTHDAY

and its been chosen by PAULINE

The girls have been working hard to
create designs to inspire you, so please
take a moment to view their work and
if you can, leave them a comment.

I have chosen to use an image from the cd

Yesterdays Memories ( Stallion)

I decided that I would make a Birthday card for
 a male, seeing as I don't have many in my stash.

You can purchase it and others by clicking on 
the link   HERE.  There are also some great
freebies too,  so well worth checking it out.

The prize for the winner will be
2 digi downloads from the Ooh La La Creations Store


DETAILS

1. Card size is 8 x 8 and to this I have added a backing
paper printed off the cd Yesterdays Memories.

2. From the cd I also printed off the sheet containing the
topper and smaller toppers. I printed out another
backing paper but only used the part containing the
horses heads as I wanted this as a border.

3. Mounted the topper the two smaller toppers and the
panel onto gold mirri card. The large topper was
secured with foam tape but the rest were adhered
flat as I wanted the centre topper to stand proud.

To complete again using gold mirri card I die cut
the horse shoes and the Happy Birthday added
gold Tonic Nuvo Drops to both corners and there
you have it, I think a great male birthday card.

You have plenty of scope with this challenge as the
birthday can be for any gender or age.  Looking
forward to seeing what you come up with.

Thanks for calling and your lovely comments

Until Next Time
