Biker George

Evening,

Two posts in one day - amazing! Well I did say that I'd be back later so thought I'd better stay true to my word. As well as being Valentines Day today it is the birthday of my aunt, my cousin and my father-in-law. Happy birthday to you also if you are celebrating your birthday today too!

Here are the cards which I made during the week for my father-in-laws birthday, one from us and one from Lewis.

The image is a George download from the Rock n Roll Collection from Dottie's World which you can purchase from Charmed Cards & Crafts and the papers are Blueberry Cobbler from Shabby Princess. I made the sentiment myself.

The second card was made using Hamish fixing tractor (Sugar Nellie) available from Funky Kits and the papers were some that I downloaded a while back but I can't remember where they came from now! Again I printed the sentiment on the computer.

My father-in-law loved both which I was pleased about necause I find it difficult to make men's cards. Speaking of Sugar Nellie, I have just pre-ordered the Gorjuss Girls stamps from Funky Kits and can't wait until they come as they are absolutely gorgeous. I'm also looking forward to receiving the Whiff of Joys stamp club kit of Elisabeth Bell which I ordered a few weeks back!

Hoping to be back tomorrow at some point although have a busy day ahead of me. Lewis is going to a birthday party tomorrow and then at night I'm going to the Strictly Come Dancing Tour at the SECC in Glasgow and can't wait!!! I'm a MASSIVE fan and went to see the tour last year. I'm sure that it will be even better this year with the celebrities that are taking part, looking forward to seeing Rachel and Vincent as well as Tom and Camilla. I'll let you know what it was like on Monday and post some piccies as I intend on taking lots with the new camera we got at Christmas.

I have just finished Craig Revel Horwood's autobiography that Santa brought me from Christmas and it was an enjoyable and interesting read. I think of him differently now that I have read the gory details about his life, very amusing at points!

Anyway, I'll stop rambling now. Off to bed to start a new book - decisions, decisions!
