PC Birthday Card

Had a great lunch with the girls today but am exhausted now and my toe is still throbbing, so just a very quick post. This was a card I was asked to make for someone who loves his computer almost as much as I do mine. I thought an easel card would be great for this themed card.
I raised the keyboard on 3d foam and added a mouse cut out of funky foam to keep the easel card open.I left a piece of cord trailing from the mouse up to the wording in the card. Unfortunately you cannot see that in the photo. The embossing folder is one of the goodies I brought last week at the Craft Show.

This card is for the following challenges

A Spoon Full of Sugar - Birthday Wishes

Paper Playtime - Technology

Tuesday Throwdown - 3d it

Baby Sister

All I seem to be saying this year is what a bad blogger I am. I can only say I've been busy doing other things. My toe is still hurting after falling over nearly three weeks ago but the bruises are at last fading very slowly.
My good friend Gill took me to the Braintree Stitch and Creative Card show last week. It was a very enjoyable day and I stocked up on all my card stock, which is very heavy for me to carry but as Gill had the car it was great. It means when I go to Ally Pally in a couple of months I won't even have to think about card stock I can just look at all the other delicious goodies that will be on show.
This is a card I was asked to make this week for two boys with autism who have a new baby sister. I thought a spinner card would be a good idea for the boys. This is the first spinner card I have made and it did take me rather a long while as it was rather fiddly but I am pleased with the finished results.

This card is the following challenges

How Old ???

Blimey how much worse can this year get and it's only February.
Firstly I get a cold that knocks me out for three weeks.Then just as I thought I was getting better I go into the garage and go flying all over the place. I ended up with two black and blue and swollen knees, a bruised arm and my big toe is all swollen as well.It's been nearly two weeks now and I am still hobbling around. It sure put a dent on my mojo.
Thinks are starting to look up though and over the weekend I even managed to finish this terms Calligraphy project. Not bad considering on Wednesday I had barely started.Jackie the teacher will be in for a shock on Wednesday.Now I have to think of something else to do until the end of term.
This is the year when a lot of my friends and also unfortunately me too reach the big 50 so plenty of special cards to make this year.
This card is for Friday Sketchers Challenge 140
