"Very Simple Birthday Card"

Hello Blog friends, sorry I have been MIA again.....!!!
See this life thingy, it keeps getting in the way.  It is a real pain in the posterior.  Thank you for bearing with me I really do appreciate that.
Did the Card Class on Tuesday morning and as I told you someone would not be happy.  Two of them actually, they did not have any babies coming that they would need cards for......................come on!!!!   I was so annoyed, I really had to bite my tongue, that was rather sore.   They said they would use the pink card and paper to make a birthday card, so I just left them to it.   I handed them all a sheet with what we intend doing in the next 6 classes.  I told them that if they were not interested in doing what was there, to let us know if they were coming or not.   Making up the Kits is a lot of work and if they are not coming to do what is in the Kit, there was no point in me making it up.   Sounds very hard but to be honest I have had enough of their faffing about.   Right that`s that off my chest.
Looking out the window the sky is blue, the sun is shining.   This morning you could not see your hand in front of your face the fog was so thick.  Another fatal crash just along the road from Hazel (hazelsbasketsofjoy) who is across the river Tay in Fife.  There was one yesterday morning in the same area approx the same time.  Why oh! why! do drivers not take more care in dangerous conditions.
My card today is so, so simple, I just had to make it up though.  There were quite a few Christmas Cards made using the Memory Box Merry Christmas Die, well this is made using their brand new Happy Birthday one on the same lines.  How simple is this:-

Base card approx 6 x 6
Papers free with the fist edition of the Tattered Lace Magazine
Memory Box Die from Oyster Stamps (new for 2014)
Ribbon and Pearls from my stash
 Off to get myself organised for the boys coming after school for their tea.
They like coming on a Thursday .... the Fishman comes, they love fish

That`s it for today 
Thank you so much for taking time to pop in.   I appreciate all your visits and comments
Till next time

"One of each"

Hello and welcome to my little corner of Blogland.
Thank you all very much for your wonderful comments on my Rose card.  I have been enjoying using up some other little bits.  I made lots of roses, put them in a box for future use.................will I remember they are there???
I have tried to get round everyone`s Blog, I do hope I have managed.  I did not leave you out intentionally if I missed you.  
I have another new follower, welcome ........AussieaNNie all the way from Australia.  Well I think you would have guessed that on your own.  I hope you like what you see and pop back again soon.   
Not too busy here at the Ranch today,  house done, then off out to the Dentist in Perth.  I chipped a bit off one of my teeth just before Christmas.  Sorted now, all cleaned and polished, big smiles once again.   Had a little look round some of the shops, sales on but nothing that took my fancy.  I did buy a couple of rucksacks for the boys the ones the use for school are rather tatty.  We did think they might have gotten them as gifts at Christmas, but no.  Anyway that`s for them when they come along for tea on Thursday.
Glad I managed to raise a smile with my escapades while out walking.  Living out in the sticks, getting older!!! and liking long walks wearing rather bright clothing does have its drawbacks.................!!!!
My cards today are the ones the ladies will be making at the Card Class tomorrow morning.  The group really are not adventurous, I so wanted to teach them new techniques but NO!!!!  They just want to make cards. not too fancy,  not too many Die Cuts, not too thick because that makes then expensive to post ahhhhh!!!!!!  As long as they are happy I suppose I have to just go with the flow as they say........!!

One for a boy

One for a girl

Elaine bought  6 of the Baby Art Pads from LOTV.  We have used some, we will do more cards using some of the others later.  If you have not used these they are really good.  You get lots of images and 3 or 4 of each in a pad. 
Base cards approx 6 x 6
Blue & Pink card stock
Papers printed from Perfect Papercrafting Companions
Images from LOV Art Pads
SB border Die
Ribbon & Buttons from stash

Some of the ladies do not have Die Cutting machines and keep telling Elaine and I not to have too many Die Cuts on the cards.  Can`t complain about these then......................sure as eggs is eggs some will. 
That`s it for today
Thank you so much for popping in I really appreciate it
Till next time
