How has your week been so far? I was on a school trip yesterday to Marwell Zoo. It was a good trip we walked so far the weather was good and lots of the animals were out. I was exhausted yesterday evening, school trips do that to me, I didn't get much done.
I am striving to get well ahead with the cards I need to make. I have no idea when my daughter is going to want her Save the Date cards made and I want to be ready when she tells me what she wants. I must say she and her fiancé are looking at some very exciting wedding venues including London Zoo. I have started a page at the top of my blog to keep track of all the bits that I make towards the wedding I thought it would make a kind of diary. Anyway back to the point I made a birthday card for my dad today even though his birthday isn't until May. I have to admit that it was rather quick make.
I have had this Kanban image in my stash for a while and I decided it would make a great card for my dad. He likes doing puzzles and this topper looks like one of the scenes on the jigsaws he does. Black and gold seemed like the obvious choice for the mats but I wanted a green and brown backing paper. There wasn't one in my stash so I decide to make one with two small leaf stamps, some Perfect Medium, two shades of embossing powder and three different shades of green Distress Ink. In about 5 minutes I had the background I wanted. The sentiment came from the Kanban sheet.
I only had my phone to take photos at the zoo yesterday we did get very close to the giraffes they were all in their house keeping out of the wind.
I am sure that my dad will like this card he never really says much.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
