Winter Birthdays

...A few weeks ago I was asked to make a special card for a friend's Mum...her birthday is a Christmas one so I tried to add a little bit of winteryness into the card but making it pretty birthday stylee too... She sent me a photo of her Mum when she was a baby and I scanned it, cleaned it up and printed it off ready to use on the card.....{OK You got me on that one...Grim scanned it, cleaned it up and printed it off for me cos I am stoooopid with anything computery!}





The pics don't show up the detail on the lacing across the centre of the card, nor does it pick up the delicacy of the gorgeous papers I used...but...thankfully it was well received and the lady in question loved it...aw, makes me happy when it goes good! The photo was edged with Vintage Photo DI to make it look old again...and mounted onto mountboard so it was like one of the old photo's that Studio's used to send out....





Anyway ....another quickie today...you will all be thinking that I have got a sore throat with this lack of chatterings..but I admit, I am scheduling this one cos I am off to see Jennie today and just know I won't get time to post otherwise...she can talk the hind leg off a donkey you know ROFL

Thanks for looking.....have a good day
