Plain and simple Masculine cards.

Didn't get much sleep last night as I thought the wind 
was trying to get indoors.
The park behind my house is a mess of bark and leaves
from the big Blue Gum out there.
My back garden is covered too so when the rain stops
you know where I will be picking up leaves and bark.

My trip to the UK is fast becoming a reality now that my daughter has at last 
received her replacement citizenship  certificate.
She was one of a vast number of people who were issued with a certificate
which did not have a date on it back in the 90's.
She has at last been able to apply for her passport and paid extra to get
it fast tracked.
I don't think she will be happy until she has it in her hand.

I have quite a lot of birthday cards to make for elderly men.
As I know nothing at all about them, hobbies, likes and dislikes etc.
I have had to find something neutral.
SW banner die has proved very useful.

The card below used some of my many scraps of embossed card.
Just love those colours together. 

 Sharing these with

It is not going to be a good day for anyone in Australia today as it is
Wind, Rain, Fires and Heat.
Stay safe.

Mellow Yellow

I know that I am running a bit late with my DT card for 
this month but my computer is on a go slow.
That is if it is going at all.
May be that I will have to lash out and buy a new one as technology
has now left this one far behind.

Without more ado here is my card.

This is another of the many flowers that my daughter has coloured for me.
She leaves me to do the fussy cutting though.
The background card is some I coloured when Copics first came into Australia.
It had been in my bit box waiting to be used ever since.
It was just big enough to fit into the die and makes,
well I think it makes, an excellent background. 
I also coloured the gem in the centre of the flower with copics.
The butterfly is an Elizabeth die and I cut it out then stuck it onto
some overhead projection film which I coloured too.
The  background paper was shimmer with swirls and leaves.  
I also made use of some scraps of the yellow card.

Do come and share your patterned paper cards with us at 
we love to see them.

I am going to share this with,
So I will pop over and see what Parsnip has been up to.
His usual mischief I expect.

Have a great day.
