Have just entered the busy birthday time - February and March then July, August and September seem to be the most predominant birthday months in our family.

IMG_0402Brenda (my daughter's mother-in-law) had her 60th birthday last week and I made her the following trio:

Here are some close-ups of each individual item:

Then it was my birthday. Thank you so much to everyone who sent me their best wishes - I do appreciate it.

NO - I did not make myself a card lol!! However, I did receive some lovely cards (and pressies):

IMG_0424Later this week it is my youngest grandson's birthday so I borrowed Karen's Ahoy Matey set and made him this card.

Must admit that the idea was cased from SCS but I did add a few extra details on to it. Inside I used the jumbo wheel with the map on it across the bottom.

Now have to start making the next batch of cards. These are predominantly male cards so no pretty flowers and glitter, boo hoo!

What an amazing collection of cards! Ahoy Matey is perfect for little boys, isn't it?
