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.

    Terrific cards for the fellas.
    How exciting for you planning your trip.
    Wish I could get to meet up whilst you are over here but Sussex is quite a distance away from me........not as far as Tasmania, obviously, but you know what I mean lol!!!

  6. How excited you must be looking forward to that UK trip. I hope all goes well, smooth flights, and a lovely visit for you too. I like these masculine's a lovely CAS design, and pretty (yet masculine) colors on the banners too. I think they will be a hit with the recipient! Hope you've been well too. TFS & Happy Easter.
