Woyww 159

Hi all!  June is a busy month in our family, so a good way to keep up to date with woyww! 

Over the past week I have made a fathers day card and a card for my mams birthday.  My Dad is really good and DIY and very much in demand, but cards for men, well I find them quite difficult!  Anyway, off I went to raid the stash box ('cause I'm skint don't you know and can't be going out buying new stuff - booo!) and found some tool embellishements I had used to make a "Brian builds a bathroom" scrapbook (a request from my Mam when Dad installed a new bathroom suite and decorated), so I headed off to my (newly organised) scraps box found some plastic tool embellishments.  I used a tool belt, spanner and 2 nails to spell out DIY, mounted them onto some card scraps and voila!  Father's day sorted.
For Mam's birthday, I raided the stash again and found some Holly Hobby style 3D decoupage pictures (Mam likes Holly Hobby), so I duly pushed those out (they were pre-cut, yay!), added lots of tiny foam pads, stuck that onto a circle die cut, added silver dots and mounted onto some teapot patterned paper with a strip of polka dot paper behind it.

Rather pleased that my cards were ready to go in advance, meaning I don't have to sit up panicking the night before - then realised that baby bugs hadn't done any, so I know what we'll be doing at breakfast time then!

A couple more cards have been made recently for my friend's birthday and my lovely little niece who turned 4!  How cute is that little felt cupcake embellishement!

 Thanks to everyone who visited my blog last week and my new followers!  For more Wednesday fun pop over to Julia's place.
