The Blues

Hello again. Yesterday was a bit of a strange day, but I did manage to complete two cards. Both of my cards following the colour scheme of 'Blues'. I started my day but going to see my beautiful nephew Freddie at his very first sports day. They all looked so adorable in their hand painted t-shirts, with their own names on. He came first in most of his races and I couldn't have been more proud. Take a look at these piccies.....

They all look like little ducklings in this picture. Don't their t-shirts look fantastic, my sister is going to frame Freddie's with all his first place stickers!
Anyway, moving on to the rest of my strange day. My mum and I were meant to be spending the afternoon with our good friend Jenny doing some crafting but unfortunately Jenny had some computer problems so she spent most of her afternoon in Comet trying to sort it out.
I did mange to complete one card, which I got the idea from on Splitcoast Stampers. I didn't follow their tutorial because I couldn't get my mum's Internet to work. So we guessed the measurements and this is the result.....
I used the Daisy & Dandelion Christmas collection papers for this one and the sparkly dots are from Papermania, but I'm sorry I'm not sure where the flower embellishments are from.
My second make which was made the night before, is for my dear friend and colleague Paul. I haven't seen Paul in a while due to my health and we have been sending cards back and forth to communicate. I wanted to make him a card but I wanted to have enough space to write in it, so this was the result....... I hope he likes it. P.S. He's a big football fan......
As you can see from this picture, I should now have enough space to write a good letter to Paul. I used the Onion die cut Decoupage set from Do Crafts. I attached the decoupage image to a cut out circle and then attached this to the belly band. I then just stuck the words 'Hello' to the front at the bottom, these were from Papermania.
I'm off to complete my fairy card now ..................................................................... Toodles Nettie.x
