Birthday Time

Hello x Thank You for popping in to CNCT today x It's always nice to have you drop by x Today I am sharing some birthday cards. June - August is such a busy time for birthdays, anniversaries etc x but I know that my cards are truly appreciated  so its all worthwhile x
It's clear to see that this card is for my lovely mammy x 
The sentiment is one of Lynne's Affirmations, available from That's Crafty
Dad's card below x
Another easel card made using some square dies and a Tim Holtz stamp, paper dolls, Idea-ology pieces and tissue tape.
The card below is for my dear friend Anne Redfern who celebrated a 'Special Birthday' recently. 
Anne and I started blogging around the same time and its been amazing to watch her journey HERE.  I have also enjoyed meeting Anne at a Finnabair workshop and to have  her visit my home, along with her lovely husband x I do hope that I can do the same and visit Anne for another enjoyable crafty day together x 
Four more cards to go and then I can attempt some junk journalling, which was started on a recent trip to my lovely friend Astrid's home. It's so nice to be able to get together with crafty friends, both here on the blog, at a workshop and at home xx

Sending my best wishes xx
