A card for Paul

Hi guys, oh dear the weather outside my window is just so gloomy so I am spending a lovely Saturday afternoon stamping and listening to the telly in the background. I wanted to share a card I made for Paul one of my good friends husband ( hi Cherry, waves). Paul is currently serving in Afghanistan and it was his birthday on the 6Th of August and this was the card I made for him.

Look what I did to that famous truck? I ve used my markers and although this was my first attempt and not as good I have made another one since this with much better results, I would have practised more but I was running out of time before sending it ( typical me everything happens at the last minute). Papers are Old Olive designer papers( make sure you get some of the papers while they are on offer this month, great deal buy three packs and get the fourth free), card stock and ribbon Chocolate Chip . I didn't want to send him the pile of gifts from the accessories set so instead I ve used the pile of love hearts cos that s what I wanted to send him, LOVE not the kind his lovely wife sends him but the one that s filled with appreciation for what he is doing out there. Hope it brightened his day for a few seconds.
Now as you ve noticed I have changed the layout of my blog slightly ( what a nightmare it was for me you don't know just how useless I am with technology) so bear with me as I m adding my links back. Also I m looking in designing a header but this might take till next year LOL. Don't forget to leave me a comment for a chance to win a goujous Christmas set, there s still a bit of time left I ll be announcing the winner tomorrow at 12.00. Hugs and enjoy your weekend M xxx
