Birthday Bird,....

Why is it that when you have money to spend you can't find or see anything you want and when you don't... there is so much you NEED!!!!  Today I went out to spend some of my birthday money .... and :-(  nothing much I liked the look of!!!!  Did buy one Hero Arts cling... Bird in a circle.  I've been eyeing it for a while.

So I inked it up this evening to make a card for my dear friend Kathy who's birthday is on Monday ( while I'm away)
Just a quick card.  Did some layering of the flowers and bird for dimension.  I used two scraps of card on my desk for the matting.... hence the two tone look, which I followed through with on my colouring of the circle.  Because I did all that first without realising it was too wide for an upright card, it had to be a top folding card.... and hence the sentiment that goes down the side.  Not too bad for something quick.  I don't have enough time tonight to do all I want.... and haven't packed for the weekend away yet!!!!

Tonight my baby left home..... it will seem strange to be just hubby and I - after 24 years of having kids around.  Kieran has gone flatting with his girlfriend and 3 other guys in a large house... luckily not too far away so I can keep an eye on him!!!  Still quite a moment when the last one leaves!!!!  But it is time for him to stand on his own feet.  At his age we were married!!!!   Time marches on....

Thanks for stopping by .... won't get time to post tomorrow - so till next week, enjoy life to the fullest.

Isn't it fun to ink up a new stamp?! Love what you've done with it, Dawn! Beautiful colors and design!

I feel the same way about the kids moving out! Even though you know in your mind it's right for them and they need to do it, it's still so difficult! I guess we just have to trust in the fact that we've taught them well, shown them as best we can how to live a good life and then do a lot of praying! Glad he's not too far away. That makes it easier! Have a wonderful trip...I'll miss ya! :)

Beautiful card Dawn!Love your design and colours. Great dimension on the flowers and bird too.

I'm sure it must have felt strange your baby leaving home but at least it great that he is still close by.
