You always need Thank You cards after a Birthday

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How is your week going? The weather has certainly been nice here. This week I started invigilating at our local secondary school. This should provide me with enough money to keep up with my crafty needs. I am also getting a small pension that I almost forgot about. It is  just enough to keep me going. As they say every little helps.

The post title says it all I had a birthday I got some lovely presents and cards so I need thank you cards.

I loved the Doodled Floral Corner Digi set from Fred She Said that I used for a Design Team piece recently. With Publisher I created the shaded blue background. Then I placed the image on top. There was no thank you sentiment with the set so I created my own. I printed the resulting image onto Neenah card stock and I coloured the flowers and leaves with my Promarkers. Not much else was needed just some simple matting and layering. I made ten of these cards. They are nice and flat for posting too, 

Here are the gorgeous handmade cards I received. 

This is just some of the highlights from our trip to Glasgow. Here  is part of the Charles Rennie Mackinstosh Chinese inspired tea room interior. It is in the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. We did see the recreated Tea Room at The Willow Tea Rooms. 

This rather fabulous display was at the Gallery of Modern Art. 

On my birthday we had afternoon tea at The Willow Tea Rooms. The chairs were amazing they were just so tall. The food was good too. 

We used the tour bus while we were there it makes it so easy to get around. We had a two day ticket and we got to see lots of thing that we would have been harder without it. 

Near the cathedral there is this mural of St Mungo. Apparently one of his miracles was to revive a robin. 

We are members of the National Trust which meant that we were able to visit the Tenement House that is owned by the National Trust of Scotland. It is a time capsule from when it was built. It gives a fascinating insight into ordinary life. 

Here are all ten cards together. I did enjoy using all the different colours. All I have to do now is get them into the post. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
