…for a special person’s special birthday 😉
Today is hubby’s birthday so I can share these couple of cards which I made for him. First, one I made for my mum to send. She often ‘commissions’ me to make cards which she can then give to friends and family members, and this is what I created for her to send to G.
His job is connected with space and astronomy so I am often making cards on this subject, both for him and also even for his work colleagues when he asks me to make a card for one of their birthdays.
So I went for a punny one here. And he appreciated it 😉
(Shame that the metallic silver and gold cardstock elements do not show up too well in photography, sorry)
And this one from me….
On a starry night theme, made with Cosmic Shimmers to represent the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis. And a little stamping and heat embossing of the tree silhouette to create the wintry landscape. Stickles add starry accents. He even picked up on the snow drifts made with layered white card, with torn edges.
You see, this card has even more special significance… it holds a big clue to what our exciting weekend was all about…
Yes, we had a weekend away in Norway, up in the Arctic Circle to see the Northern Lights! And wow, it was quite the weekend.
My card really doesn’t do it justice at all (even though those Cosmic Shimmers really do shimmer quite a lot, as I hope you can see when I tilt the card into the sun) – LOL!!!!
I will have to share some Norway pics soon – it has been a bit of a whirlwind since we got back and back to work too of course.
Anyhoo, that’s all for now. A special message to finish on, in case he sees this post… Happy Birthday my dearie and I love you!
Bye all, Ruth x
