Today I have to go away again for work – a full three nights means I won’t be back until Friday evening, by which time I should think my feet will be frazzled. This time I have mixed feelings about being away. Youngest beez is leaving the hive and moves out tomorrow. He is more than ready to go but it’s still a hard thing for this mum, who will miss him dreadfully. I’ve been pretty brave up until now and I’m wondering if going away, and not actually seeing the move happen, will help. On the other hand it’s going to be very strange returning home and knowing he won’t be around 🙁
Of course I have made a card to wish him and his girlfriend well in their new home:
As you know, I have no shortage of house stamps so it was just a question of choosing which one! I used inks and Promarkers to add colour and then die cut a little glittery heart to pop in the window. I decided to opt for a clean and simple look and love how it turned out.
My second card is to celebrate my brother’s birthday which is tomorrow.
Like me, he is an ardent fan of West Ham United FC and, as he lives in the south, is lucky enough to be a season ticket holder. Each year I try and come up with a new twist on the West Ham theme. I picked up this retro playing card on Ebay and despite my best attempts, managed not to throw it away each time I thought the envelope it was in was empty!!!!
I’ve used some spotted designer paper to pick up the green and then decorated it using team colours. The little glass drops are there to represent bubbles – the club song is the classic “I’m forever blowing bubbles” which they have made their own.
Thanks for buzzing by.
