Special card for a special person.......................

Sorry for not posting much over the last couple of weeks but we have been up to our eyes in decorating and moving rooms round; principally my craft room which started out as a bedroom.......... I had gradually taken over until there was just a sofabed and double wardrobe in it.  We decided to move these out and my lovely hubby then put in units, worktops, shelving, electrics and towel rails for all my punches - what a sweetheart.  Anyway this has caused so much chaos that I've been tripping over boxes and bags for the last two weeks plus I'm getting ready for our Christmas Craft Fayre which is taking place on Friday 12th November from 7pm til 9pm (wine and nibbles included!!! lol) at Sparkford Village Hall.

Anyway it's Tony's birthday on Tuesday so I have made this card for him using an image from the Thomas Kinkade CD from Joanna Sheen.  He loves watermills so I thought he would like this.  It's straight forward decoupage but the last layer which is the water has been printed onto silver inkjet film which makes it look wet - not sure if the photo does it justice on this.  It's mounted on an 8" x 8" card and I have used a deep edger punch from Martha Stewart and some gems.  The sentiment was included with the decoupage sheets.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Lovely card Karen, Tony will love it, our CD' certainly come in handy at times don't they.


  2. Great card - I reckon he will love it. Good old TK coming up with a suitable image. Say Happy Birthday from me.
